NEOPLANTS – Technicien(ne) en culture in vitro des plantes

About Neoplants:
We’re an early stage biotech start-up founded by Lionel (Ex Google) and Patrick (PhD
Genetic Editing, ENS), working on the first generation of bioengineered plants to fight
air pollution. We start with indoor air pollution, which is up to 5 times higher than
outdoors and due to a specific type of pollutants called VOCs. We create plants that
can effectively remediate these compounds in your home. Our longer term ambition is
to leverage our technologies for other large scale applications such as carbon capture
and storage for example. We are backed by top tier Silicon Valley and European
investors and are currently based in Paris, France.
We are looking for passionate, ambitious, rigorous and talented individuals to
supercharge our R&D and join us on our mission: putting nature at the heart of product
innovation to drive positive change. We’re looking for individuals who are not afraid to
take on seemingly impossible challenges, humble enough to recognise when barriers
are insurmountable, yet ingenious enough to find workable solutions.

We are at the beginning of a thrilling journey; with amazing growth opportunities.
Joining us means being part of our world-class team and having a huge impact on our
R&D and the development of our products. You will get to exercise your leadership,
critical thinking, project management skills and team spirit by acquiring multiple
responsibilities in an ultra fast-moving environment. You will also contribute to the
exceptional working environment we are cultivating.
At Neoplants, we aim to rekindle that spark we had in our eyes when we first got into
science. If you are as excited as we are about state of the art technologies, exploring
uncharted scientific territories, pushing the boundaries of what is conceivable for good,
if you want to transform the way people think about genetics and work on inspiring
deep-tech products that have a real positive impact on the environment and people’s
lives, join us and help us lead this movement.
