Fermentation Technician

At Allozymes, we are building the largest custom-designed enzyme library to deliver groundbreaking industrial bio-solution for the sustainable future of the food, cosmetics, and pharma industries. Enzyme is an engine of the cell that empowers all the reactions in nature and in modern life they play a key role in 100s of industrial applications, from the creation of cheese and wine all the way to medicine. However, finding the right enzymes and improving their performance is still a key challenge. The process of enzyme engineering is very slow and super expensive. At Allozymes, we are solving all these issues with our proprietary technology. We engineered enzymes 10X faster with a 200X higher chance of success compared to the conventional technologies (Robotic). We create products and provide bio-solutions that will have a huge impact on the green future of the food, cosmetics, and pharma industries. Read in TechCrunch and Compasslist about our vision.
