Inspired by life – Serotiny digitally encodes nature’s features and functions into a biologically aware API for the high-throughput, rational design of multi-domain synthetic proteins.

By coupling state-of-the-art mammalian synthetic biology and a finely-tuned software architecture, Serotiny aims to embrace one of the greatest opportunities of the 21st century to improve people’s lives. Serotiny designs custom proteins with cutting edge capabilities including treatment of cancers and genetic disorders. We partner with leaders in the life sciences to give proteins wholly new functions for more effective, safer, and customized therapies.

With support from world-class investors including NanoDimension and 8VC, Serotiny is proud to build a cross-disciplinary team of passionate individuals with varied experiences.


Why join us?
  • Serotiny is an interdisciplinary team that is passionate about inventing ways to advance development of therapeutics. Central to our development process is our digital architecture - a biologically aware API (written in Go) that enables our biologists to ask clever questions about our data through a javascript (ember) front end.

    Joining our team at Serotiny would put you front and center of building our API, and as a small team you would have the opportunity to take responsibility for Design/Build/Deployment our whole stack. Although the tech side will be yours to build and manage, you won't be alone; our cross disciplinary team of PhD's has experience in biology, data and software development. We're also eager to collaborate - it's important for us to throw around ideas for not only technical development, but also business development, recruiting, community engagement, etc. In other words, as an early hire at Serotiny you will have the opportunity to direct the product as well as your own career.

  • Serotiny is backed by world-class investors with background in both bio and tech including Nanodimension (https://nanodimension.com/) and 8VC (https://www.8vc.com/).

Engineering at serotiny
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team consists of PhD's with experience writing and deploying code. However, the code needs to be worked into a scalable state. We have expert consultants at our disposal, as well as strong bioinformatics and data scientists to help design algorithms and data structures.

Our back-end is currently written in Go, our front-end in Ember (javascript), with a PostgreSQL database. We have a 'public' branch of our software, and an 'internal/admin' branch of our software.

We are currently setting up a development environment.

Technical Challenges

We have an integrated and technical privacy and permissioning system for data that permits data to flow in very specific and auditable directions.

Our system integrates biology into its code, and is doing so at an unaddressed abstraction layer. So improvements to the code and abstraction layer bring immediate benefit to the state of biology. Novel insights into our data provided by working at that abstraction layer are of high-value.

Projects you might work on
  • Update and design a full backend for a biologically-aware REST API

Working at serotiny

We're a small team with varied experiences looking to push forward the state of therapeutic development. Given that the synthetic bio/tech intersection is so new, we find that community engagement through conferences, meetups and public education critical to progress of the field. If you have ideas or curiosities, we encourage you to pursue them.
