About the role

Competitive salary plus stock options


You rarely get the chance to change an entire industry. But that's the position we find ourselves in.  We’re developing a machine that totally automates mammalian cell culture - one of the most painful but important processes in biology.

Cells are crucial for biotech and pharma. They’re used to discover and develop new drugs, AND they enable cutting-edge cancer cell therapies. Mytos has the potential to impact therapy development across the board.

We’ve assembled a world-class team to take on this challenge, with ex-Dyson engineers and Nature-published scientists working hand-in-hand. You can learn more about your potential Mytos teammates here: Team

Mytos is backed by Y Combinator, the most successful startup program in the world which produced companies such as AirBnb, Dropbox, and Ginkgo Bioworks. 


Our ideal team member is a problem-solver, a people-connector, and a relationship-builder with a background of success in scaling teams thoughtfully. You'll develop, iterate on, and own recruiting systems and processes from end-to-end; source, pitch, screen, and close candidates; and partner closely with hiring managers across the organisation. You’ll also lead and contribute to people-focused, cross-functional work in learning and development, equity, community building, and more.

Your Responsibilities

  • Source top talent for high-impact roles for Mytos through a variety of creative channels
  • Partner with hiring managers to build and improve recruiting processes and develop sourcing strategies for each of your roles
  • Act as the main touchpoint for your candidates from source to close
  • Ensure a positive end-to-end interview experience for all candidates
  • Equally prioritize speed and care when responding to candidates
  • Represent Mytos and engage with candidates at conferences and events
  • Effectively lead and contribute to cross-functional projects

You Might Thrive In This Role If You

  • Are deeply interested in technology and Biotechnology, and their potential for positive impact on humanity
  • Are passionate about building and growing relationships
  • Connect and relate to a wide range of people, personalities, and values
  • Want to ensure the best candidate is the one who gets hired, independent of any biases
  • Have a track record of balancing multiple open roles with ease
  • Learn quickly and thrive in a constantly evolving environment with shifting priorities

We're Looking For

  • 1+ years of experience in technical recruiting for roles including research or hardware and software engineering
  • 2+ years of experience in full-cycle recruiting from source to close


  • Competitive salary with stock options
  • Lunch covered daily
  • 24 days holiday (excluding bank holidays)
  • Collaborative team environment with very high potential to learn new skills

Why you should join Mytos

You rarely get the chance to change an industry. But that's position we find ourselves in.

We're developing a revolutionary new automated human cell growing system. Cells are key to every biotech and pharma company - from those developing new drugs, to those developing new cell-based medicines. And yet today they're all grown totally manually, the same as 100 years ago. With our machines, for the first time our customers can hands-off manipulate and monitor batches of cells from the cloud.

We've already signed up some of the biggest companies in the space as customers for the coming year, and in the near future, our solutions will be growing cells for cell therapies - the best cancer cures ever created. Join us and help us get there! We have recently been featured in top lists from Labiotech as well as Forbes, and we're backed by Y Combinator, the most successful startup accelerator in the world which produced companies such as AirBnb, Dropbox, and Cruise.
