An Insider's view of Benchling

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I think that the company culture is at the center of everything we do. Every single person here is willing to put down what they're doing to support to their colleagues whenever needed. That’s what is particularly special about Benchling. People are always ready to give their best effort, and there's no shortage of laughter or camaraderie!

Madeleine

Customer Support Specialist

What does your typical day look like?

The mission driven culture defines our day to day in the "office" (or Zoom meetings/Slack messaging). I've never worked at a company where there's such a permeating sense of optimism. People are generous with their time and knowledge, but still remain humble. Also, Aloha Fridays keep our vibes in check.

Alex

Implementation Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

One of the main reasons I joined Benchling is I knew I would grow along multiple axes. Benchling gives me the opportunity to explore outside of my role as an engineer. In the short time I've been here, I've had the opportunity to contribute to the company blog, help organize the annual hackathon, and manage part of the internship program!

Steven

Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

I’m very excited by our COVID-19 initiatives. In an effort to help ramp up testing, we have partnered with universities and private companies to create a turn-key software solution that powers their sample analysis on Benchling. We’ve made it much faster for any lab that plans to spin up COVID-19 tests!

Nishant

Regional Lead, Professional Services

What projects are you most excited about?

As a co-lead of Benchling's People of Color affinity group, I'm most excited about projects and events that teach and celebrate multiple cultures. On Lunar New Year, our group passed out red envelopes. Many employees were familiar with the tradition, but they learned even more about its significance in Asian cultures from the information we shared.
