Our high-performance and easy-to-use C-Trap™ and AFS™ systems allow for the visualization of DNA-protein interactions at the single molecule level in real time. Enabling biologists to understand complex biological processes at the single-molecule level is key for the prevention and potential cure of many diseases.
We’re a small academic spin-off from a fundamental research group at VU University Amsterdam. Having successfully made the first sales to opinion-leading labs such as Harvard, Berkeley, Max-Planck, Rockefeller University, and ShanghaiTech, LUMICKS is now expanding the team.

I think it's meant as a proxy for "enjoys a startup, not a 9-to-5 mentality, as we're still very much in an early growth phase, where people need to be a bit flexible". I may try to push for us to drop the "recently" bit, as I'm not convinced it's a proxy that's fair to use for this position.
So personally, I wouldn't take that particular adjective too seriously.
Thanks for reaching out!
