The Meatable approach for creating ‘cell-based’ meat is based on ground-breaking proprietary technology that was developed at The University of Cambridge and allows us to turn induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) into muscle and fat cells, creating 100% real, delicious, guilt free meat. We use iPSCs because they have amazing benefits that enable affordable, at scale production (e.g. they are pluripotent, grow completely serum free, have unlimited proliferation capacity and can grow in suspension). With our technology, scalable cell-based meat production is becoming a reality.
We are a young and fast-growing company and are entering our next wave of growth. Given our size, new team members will be a huge part of our motivated multidisciplinary team. Our culture encourages everybody on the team to actively shape their position and we provide ample opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Together with the team, you will be challenged to produce sufficient amounts of high quality muscle tissue and fat cells with our state-of-the art technology. This cultivated meat will be used in our first prototype end-products.
Together with our multidisciplinary team of scientists and technicians you will plan and execute the media production processes and make sure it meets the criteria and improves where possible. A significant part of your role will be hands-on work in our pilot lab facility. You will keep the stock solutions at level and deliver in time the ingredient mixture to the bioreactors. You will prepare initially media batches of 50 – 100 L , which will gradually increase towards 1000 L batches in pilot plant trials.
