At LenioBio GmbH, everything we do begins with our mission: to provide our customers with disruptive solutions to address their challenges easier, quicker, cheaper, better, and safer.

Our ALiCE technology scales with the pharmaceutical R&D process, from discovery to clinical trials/product testing and finally, to GMP-grade production, in the form of an end-to-end integrated production platform.

LenioBio aims to unlock the full potential of ALiCE® and will enable protein drugs to be brought to the market faster and at a lower cost.

About this job

We are about to establish a new pilot line for the ALiCE® Production and seek for a motivated team member for the setup and operation of the (USP and DSP) production process.

Your responsibilities

  • You are part of the team that is responsible for the preparation and operation of the pilot-scale ALiCE® Production. This includes the preparation and operation of USP and DSP equipment.

It means that you are an expert in your craft because you love what you do, you know you can become even better, and you are constantly looking for the boundary of the possible.
