What We're About

Sun Bear Biofuture was born in 2022 out of a desire to use modern science and technology to have a meaningful environmental impact. We are reimagining farming to produce everyday essentials more sustainably. We’re starting by using synthetic biology, precision fermentation and machine learning to produce an alternative to palm oil. Why? Well, it’s responsible for over 500m tonnes of CO2e annually and has had a huge impact on the planet.


Sun Bear Biofuture has recently raised investment to grow our fantastic team. Our focus is very much in the lab and we’re looking for talented and exceptional people to join us on our mission.

Some defining qualities for us, so you can get a sense of what we’re about, are our values: Candid, Trusting, Nurturing, Impact-Driven and Brave. If a culture built on these values sounds like a good fit then we’d love to hear from you.


If you’re wondering why sun bears well, that's a daily reminder of our mission - there’s fewer than 1000 left in the wild largely due to deforestation. Come and join us on a real scientific and technical journey to help create a better world for all.

What You're About

You’re awesome, whether you know it or not. You have the power to add great capabilities, wisdom, knowledge and skills in areas such as yeast biology, lipids, synthetic biology and fermentation to the Sun Bear team. If you’re hardworking, focused, passionate, with a good attention to detail and you take climate change seriously and love science, then we could be a great match.


How you got here matters less to us than your passion, interest and understanding. If you like to explore ideas, discuss, debate and challenge assumptions and feedback to others on their ideas then you’ll fit in really well.



We always love hearing from keen future Sun Bears. If you don't see something that suits you, feel free to reach out to us via
