A working day as a Technician Development Services:
You start with a cup of coffee and checking your e-mail. Next, you go to the laboratory and perform experiments that you have designed yourself with input from your team. You will analyze the experimental results and propose follow-up experiment to further perfect the assay that you are designing. There is lunch break in our company canteen, or others prefer to take a walk outside. You will divide you remaining time between experimental work and writing of SOPs and reports and afterwards leave to enjoy a free evening at home.

What do we offer?
Not only do we offer a good benefits package, we also motivate every single one of our employees to continue their personal development by simply enabling them to do so. Other additional perks we offer are Bootcamp and Pilates training sessions and of course team-building activities. Last but not least: yes, we enjoy great results, but we are not shy of a joke, a celebration, a company BBQ, or a team building event either. So. If you share our passion for quality, complexity, science, teamwork, having fun and making the world a healthier place, all at the same time, DDL is the right employer for YOU!
