Job Description

Ginkgo's mission is to make biology easier to engineer. We design, build, and test organisms to address fundamental challenges the world is facing today. Ginkgo bioengineers use our foundry-a custom-built, centralized set of robotic lab equipment and software-to build new organisms for making natural products, pharmaceuticals, biofuels, and more. We're creating the code base, compiler and debugger for biology.

Ginkgo has built a strong set of internal software tools, automation and processes that enable high-throughput genetic engineering across multiple species. We want to make them even better by adding to their capabilities and scaling their performance, while making them easier and more efficient to use. The ideal product management intern has a passion for synthetic biology and scientific software.

We are looking for a product management intern who wants to think about the challenges of translating scientific workflows into software. They are excited to learn the basics of product management, to conduct user research and alpha/beta testing with the goal of delivering solutions that delight our scientists.

Requirements

* Current student in Bioengineering or related field, with in-major GPA 3.3 or higher.
* Demonstrated ability to break down complex problems into actionable steps.
* Strong communication skills.
* Excited to work with the best scientists and engineers.

We also feel it's important to point out the obvious here - there's a serious lack of diversity in our industry and it needs to change. Our goal is to help drive that change. We hope to continue to build a company whose culture promotes inclusion and embraces how rewarding it is to work with engineers from all walks of life. Making biology easier to engineer is a tough nut to crack - we can't afford to leave any talent untapped.

It is the policy of Ginkgo Bioworks to provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and employment applicants.
