Come build the bridge between biodiversity and biotech

If you feel passionate about the power of biology to create a better world, then you've come to the right place.
Basecamp Research: Our story
Our company began when we went to one of the harshest, most remote places in Europe to pioneer entirely off-grid metagenomic DNA analysis. We founded Basecamp Research on the belief that nature is better at creating proteins than any AI or scientist.

We're building the largest, most sophisticated, entirely ethically sampled graph database of natural biodiversity in existence, because we know that biodiversity is one of our planet's most important and valuable assets.
What we're most proud of is our team. We're creating a workplace that's diverse, inclusive, and welcoming to everyone. Our team of 24 has 10 nationalities, and we speak 14 languages. 40% of us are women, and just under 50% holds a PhD. We have backgrounds ranging from diplomats and soil experts to cancer researchers.

We believe that nature already has the answers to our most pressing problems. We just have to go out and find them. If you feel the same, we'd love to hear from you.
