Work With Us

At Beta Bugs we believe in Team and Clear Communication

These two tenets underpin what we build, and without either, we cannot develop and distribute our breeds whilst accelerating our sector’s growth.

Our Aim

What we're building

We’re building a space station, a deep-sea city, a castle atop a mountain. Permanent, enduring presence in our sector, at the next frontier of animal genetics.

To build at this next frontier, we’re looking for the cosmonauts, deep-sea divers, and mountaineers that seek to join and work with us at the bleeding edge of our rapidly developing industry.

Our Workplace

What it's like to work at Beta Bugs

At heart, we’re a team of passionate and diverse humans engaged in meaningful work. Sometimes it is challenging. Most times it’s fun. It is always satisfying.

We’re a friendly bunch of diverse personalities, each of us with our own humour, quirks, dreams and goals. We come from various working and academic backgrounds and speak many languages. Our diversity gives us the strength to communicate in a plain, professional and united voice, both with one another, but also with our customers, stakeholders and wider communities. 

We value mental and physical health and believe in developing all-rounded humans with focussed expertise. Specialisation is for insects.

We are signed up to the Scottish Business and Breathe Culture Pledges and take our commitments to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion seriously. 

As an employer, we provide the following benefits:

31 days annual leave inclusive of Bank Holidays and birthday. This increments with time within the company.

Flexible working hours and the ability to work from home, where and when possible. 

Company pension scheme and group life assurance scheme.

Participation in monthly town halls during which we discuss company direction and address any questions from the team.

Protect the environment

Take care of one another, as humans

Always maintain integrity
