Our Team.

We believe multi-disciplinary collaboration makes the magic happen.

So we've assembled a stellar international team of synthetic biologists, data scientists, engineers and scale-up specialists to push the boundaries of innovation.

Though we're a diverse bunch, we're united by our values: commitment to each other, enthusiasm to teach and learn, and determination to build a successful business that benefits humanity.

Our investors.

Since being founded in 2012 by Dr James Field, we have been backed by leading investors from the US and Europe, such as Kindred Capital, Backed VC, and Acequia Capital. You can see James in action here.


Work well.

Based in the brilliant Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey, we share our home with a vast array of plants, robots, and a state-of-the-art wet lab.

We operate according to core hours of 10am-4pm so you have flexibility about when you start and finish.

Every Wednesday we pause the hard work and gather for team lunch from City Pantry.

Learn well.

Uniting expertise is essential to making our work effective.

Whether you're nutty about neural networks or mad about management, we do all we can to enable growth across disciplines, from weekly talks to workshops with external experts.

We also offer a self-service learning budget via Sunlight and are cultivating a burgeoning in-house library!

Live well.

Time invested in wellbeing is time well spent.

You can stay active at the on-site gym and climbing wall, or enjoy a lunchtime stroll in the greenery of nearby Southwark Park.

We offer free monthly 1-on-1 sessions with a Sanctus mental health coach plus a Cycle2Work scheme to make your commute cheaper, healthier, and greener.

If you are a recruiter, please note we prefer to have deeper, longer-term relationships with fewer recruiters as believe it creates the most value for both parties.

Therefore we don’t accept speculative CVs from agencies and only pay recruitment fees when we instruct an agency.

If unsolicited CVs and proposals are submitted:

+ we take this as evidence of full and unlimited acceptance of LabGenius’ recruitment agency policy (as stipulated here);

+ we reserve the right to contact candidates directly without paying agency fees.

If you would like to be on our list of agencies with whom we work regularly, please complete this form and we will get back to you if you are approved.

Many thanks for your time.
