Full Stack Software Engineer

We’re looking for an exceptional full-stack software engineer to become part of our team. We offer an exceptional environment and inspiring work in the early stages of a startup that aims to empower the scientists and engineers who change the world.

UniteLabs is developing an industry-first integration platform for lab automation that connects hard- & software across vendor barriers to digitalise life science R&D. Our customers are researching the frontiers of biotech, pharma, chemistry, and food. They are looking for new treatments for diseases, inventing sustainable biomaterials, or solving world hunger. For this, they want to analyse more data, run experiments autonomously, create AI scientists, and more. Our mission is to provide them with the infrastructure to do so.

As one of the first full-time hires in our company, we are looking for someone comfortable with a fast-changing and demanding environment as well as someone who can take over responsibility autonomously. We are a tech company and take pride in our code - and so should you.

We currently have two main streams in the engineering team. One is the development of our platform and adjacent applications. The other is the implementation of our products at the customer, which entails the development and maintenance of device connectors and the design and implementation of workflows. As a part of this, we develop and contribute to open-source tools and projects, including our connector development kit and industry-leading standards, such as SiLA 2.

As we aim for sustainable but substantial growth, potential leadership or expert roles are on your path as well, if desired.

Tech Stack

A non-exhaustive list of our main technologies and tools used for a given task:

  • Web: TypeScript, Vue 3, Nuxt 3, TailwindCSS
  • Services: TypeScript, NestJS, Prisma
  • Cloud: Docker, Kubernetes, AWS
  • Databases: PostgreSQL
  • Workflows: Python, Prefect 2
  • Connectors: Python, SiLA 2, gRPC, zeroconf


While we’re still working on releasing a public statement and overview of our company culture, we want to highlight a few elements here:

  • Honesty: Being true to yourself will never be reprimanded. Please feel free to state your expectations of your work here and share what makes you you.
  • Openness: Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. No inquiry will ruin your chances of working here.
  • Work in Progress: Everything we do is limited by the time on our hands, the resources we have, and the experience we have. Therefore, nothing is final or perfect. Challenge the process!


  • Full-stack software engineering of our platform and connectors
  • Assisting with the technical design and architecture of our products
  • Contribute to open-source projects and engage with their communities, including our own
  • Design and development of automation workflows
  • Join testing and research sessions with our users
  • Support in technical sales meetings

  • Based in or willing to relocate/commute to Munich, where we are hiring our core team
  • Fluent in English
  • Relevant academic degree with a formal education in software engineering or a related field
  • At least 2 years of relevant work experience, including professional freelancing or part-time work

Bonus points for …

  • Proficiency with our tech stack

  • Additional relevant programming languages next to Python + TS/JS, especially C, .NET, or Rust
  • German language skills
  • Previous roles in startups
  • Experience or interest in biotech, life science, chemistry, or related industry

What we offer

  • Work on a truly relevant product and topic in an ambitious but collegial environment
  • While we’re an early-stage startup, we aim for a competitive compensation that will grow with the company
  • Laptop of your choice and budget for productivity and peripherals up to €3000 and €500 yearly.
  • As the first hire and part of the core team, your voice will count in all aspects
  • We’re building an office-first culture that supports home office and temporary remote work
  • A transparent, honest, and open culture that you have the opportunity to shape
  • A growing team-centric culture with knowledge-sharing sessions, offsites, workations, and more
  • Potential benefits around mobility, insurance, lunch, and more (in progress)
  • We’re currently evaluating fruit baskets 😉

How to Apply

We aim to get in touch with every applicant, so if you feel that your CV, LinkedIn, or GitHub profile is enough to convey why you’re a great fit, feel free to keep it short. Otherwise, we appreciate details on your motivation to work for a startup, examples of your work, references, more about your goals and aspirations, etc.
