Mytos is building the infrastructure for manufacturing biology. You rarely get the chance to change an industry - but that's the position we find ourselves in. Join us, and you’ll unleash scientists, accelerate their research and help get medicines to patients earlier. 

We’re Mytos and we’re automating cell culture, one of the most painful and important processes in biology. 

We’re a low-ego, high-urgency team of 23, backed by Y Combinator, the most successful startup accelerator in the world. Ours is a startup R&D environment that uses the latest design and product thinking to solve complex embedded electronics and robotics problems. We’re less concerned about highly customised one-off solutions and more excited about leveraging smart design to give our customers reliability and ease of use.
