Careers | Home

We work with some of the world’s biggest companies to find solutions to some of the world’s hardest problems. Ideas are generated, tested and come to life quickly at Owlstone Medical.

We’re developing Breath Biopsy® technology today to revolutionize healthcare tomorrow

Owlstone started as a spin-out from Cambridge University in 2004. Owlstone Medical was formed as a separate company in 2015 and we’ve since grown rapidly. Our diverse team of engineers, chemists, translational biologists, project managers and specialist support staff are now predominately based at our head offices on the Cambridge Science Park in the UK, with a number of other staff working from other locations, including in the USA.

Our technology is unique, it’s industry-leading and it opens up exciting possibilities: it’s used for academic, clinical and pharmaceutical research at sites all over the world, and we’re only just getting started on its potential. We’re on the lookout for smart people to join us as we tackle the scientific, engineering and commercial challenges to achieve our mission of saving 100,000 lives and $1.5B in healthcare costs with Breath Biopsy.

At Owlstone Medical, everyone makes a difference 

We’ve had many successes on the way, and some of the things we’ve tried haven’t worked so well. If you apply and are invited for an interview, feel free to ask us about them. Being able to rapidly pivot and adapt to new opportunities is a key feature for most successful startups.  

We currently balance providing world-leading services that support breath research, with conducting our own studies to develop new breath tests, and creating tools and technologies which will enable easy-access breath testing in the clinical setting. We reward dedication, dynamism and ability with a competitive salary, share options and an array of benefits. 

We are scientists, doctors, engineers and entrepreneurs on a mission to save lives through early detection and precision medicine
