Join us in transforming scientific understanding

The Vision

Matterworks was founded to be a lever for progress in the life sciences.

Our view is very simple: solving metabolomics will advance all of the life sciences industries. We intend to deliver that solution, and for Matterworks to become synonymous with metabolomics. We want our technology to be part of the pantheon of foundational technologies that advance human health, and part of increasingly wider applications of biotechnology.


Our Core Values


Matterworks is on a mission to democratize metabolomics and catalyze its widespread adoption and integration into the life sciences.

In pursuit of these ambitious goals, we rely on our core company values to guide our work.



We strongly believe in the mission of Matterworks to accelerate the rate of scientific progress by creating the world's most advanced metabolomics technology, and in our ability to make it happen.

We believe that this is how we will impact the world, and therefore focus our efforts on that which will help us achieve our mission.


& Trust

We value open communication — giving direct, honest, and constructive feedback when asked and expecting the same from others.

We are trustworthy and dependable. We work hard and expect everyone else to do the same. Our success hinges on everyone’s ability to deliver quality work in a timely manner.


Growth Through

We do not shy away from difficult problems. We embrace challenges as opportunities to grow personally and as a company, and view cynicism as self-fulfilling. We learn what we do not know.

We help our peers grow intellectually and develop as scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs by offering mentorship and guidance.



We approach every problem with scientific rigor, skepticism, and integrity. We challenge assumptions, but also appreciate the expertise our colleagues bring.

We respect the religious beliefs, political leanings, sexual and gender identities, and cultural values of our colleagues. We appreciate the unique experience of each member of our team, and believe this diversity of perspective is the root of creative, innovative, and truly transformative work.

We are a passionate team of scientists, engineers, and 'many-hats' professionals committed to building better tools to interrogate biology and accelerate the rate of scientific progress.

Teamwork Matters

At Matterworks, we believe that a culture of camaraderie best supports the interdisciplinary collaboration required to develop our novel metabolomics platform, which unleashes the power of machine learning on analytical chemistry methods, tools, and data to accelerate the discovery, development, and manufacture of biologics and gene therapies.

To foster such a culture, Matterworks sponsors a number of team events and activities, including all-team lunches (though we often find ourselves gathered over lunch regardless), happy hours & game nights, birthday and milestone celebrations, and offsite outings.
