Twist Bioscience is a disruptive synthetic biology startup that already collected big name customers. Our goal is to build the most powerful online platform backed by our unique high-throughput DNA synthesis technology. We want to make DNA synthesis as easy as ordering everyday products with the smoothest end-to-end user experience.
To deliver on these goals, we need to build a large scale MES (manufacturing execution system) platform that encompasses R&D, bioinformatics, machine learning, e-commerce, manufacturing, shipping and laboratory management (LIMS). Unlike other manufacturing operations, every order is different and every order item is unique, bringing unique challenges.
