Salary not provided
About the company:
Prolific Machines is on a mission to accelerate the transition to sustainable agriculture. We believe that we have the only solution to make cultured meat at a price that is competitive with factory farming. We are looking for mission-driven, skilled, and kind people to help create the alternative we need to transition to a more sustainable and healthy future.
Diversity: We value diverse people, perspectives, and knowledge. To this end, we aim to foster a sense of belonging that enables everyone to bring their whole, authentic self to work everyday. We are committed to growing a diverse and inclusive team that encompasses all types of people. We believe this can only be achieved by acknowledging the ancestral, historic, and current systemic and communal inequities.
In order to dramatically reduce our reliance on factory farming, it is critical to develop tasty whole-cuts of meat in addition to unstructured/ground products. We believe that our core technology is uniquely suited to solving the challenging problem of growing a complex, delicious meat tissue in the lab. The founding scientist/engineer on this project will lead efforts to further technically de-risk and scope this structured meat project and will set up processes and collaborations across biology, engineering, and product to enable these efforts. There will be ample opportunity for growth in this role as we expect the structured product team to grow over the coming year(s) which will be necessary to address this uniquely difficult problem.
