About Ginkgo Bioworks:

Ginkgo Bioworks was founded in 2008 with the mission to make biology easier to engineer. Engineering biology isn’t easy. It is frustratingly, painfully difficult. It’s programming without a debugger, manufacturing without CAD, and construction without cranes. At Ginkgo we are building a team that can build debuggers, write CAD, and operate cranes. We are looking for the best engineers, scientists, and hackers.
