Unlocking the utility of genomics for the world
Volta Labs is seeking a creative, collaborative, and well-rounded mechanical engineer to take on the design and development of the consumable used on the Volta Labs platform. The ideal candidate will have experience bringing a highly-regulated consumable to market in a fast-paced and multidisciplinary environment. Familiarity with molecular biology and contract manufacturing is a plus. Responsibilities for this role will follow the complete lifecycle of the Volta Labs consumable, from prototyping and design through to manufacturing and V&V.
Volta Labs, Inc. (https://www.voltalabs.com/) is an MIT spin-off that has unlocked powerful new capabilities with our proprietary fluidic technology. Our vision is to make biological automation as agile, scalable, and reliable as digital electronics. To realize this vision we are building a platform technology by engineering the full-stack -- hardware, software, chemistry, and biology.
We are at an exciting inflection point as we emerge out of stealth mode and scale up. Alongside our collaborators, we have demonstrated powerful and unique competencies that are now being developed into robust products for the decentralization of Next Generation Sequencing. This beachhead application is on the bleeding edge of innovation and adoption, and we intend to shape the future of bio-automation with our paradigm shifting platform.
Working at Volta Labs means having big ambitions for solving the world’s most challenging problems. We take pride in having a wealth of internal knowledge and experiences across all aspects of technology, and we hope that you can add fresh perspectives to that! We strive to build a community of collaborative, disruptive, and respectful team members who feel empowered to be themselves every day.

Volta Labs is a group of antidisciplinary scientists and builders working at the intersection of engineering and biology. We are building a sequencing technology agnostic platform that spans from the raw biological sample to sequenceable molecules. We are doing this by reinventing the full stack — hardware, software, chemistry, and biology — to create simple, flexible, and powerful solutions for sample preparation and beyond.
