#1 of 2Karius | Menlo Park, CA | ONSITE, Full-time | Software (Full Stack)
We are a team of crazy biologists, engineers, data scientists and clinicians on a mission to change forever the way infectious diseases are diagnosed and treated. We face incredibly interesting challenges in software engineering, machine learning and molecular biology, as we push the limits of diagnostics and genomic technologies.
We're hiring software engineers across the board to help us with infrastructure, backend, frontend, and webdev. Join us on the ground-level for this exciting journey to shape our technology, product and company culture. If you're an engineer who's willing to learn about biological problems, or have experience in next-generation sequencing, feel free to contact me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the things we’re looking for in people (not all required):
• Comfortable and familiar with both backend and frontend technologies
• Able to glide across the stack as needed
• Algorithms development background and strong understanding of practical implementation issues
• Development experience on mobile, especially iOS
• Designing and implementing robust and scalable compute infrastructure on top of AWS
• Creating pipelines for analyzing, storing and visualizing complex genomic data.
• Creating robust and beautiful user interfaces to our customers and lab biologists.
We want you to have strong opinions -- backed by proven experience -- on how good systems should be built, as well as the ability and desire to roll up your sleeves and build them yourself. We are a lean, ‘Navy Seal’ team and looking for someone with a similar mentality to join us on our mission. We are looking for someone who is excited by the challenge of conceiving, architecting, and most importantly, implementing the infrastructure we’ll need to enable lightning fast diagnosis pipelines at scale, as well as large scale data analysis on complex genomic data.
#2 of 2Transcriptic: Many roles | Onsite | Menlo Park, CA
All open positions: https://jobs.lever.co/transcriptic
Transcriptic is "Amazon Web Services" for the life sciences. Rather than carry out wet-lab experiments by hand, researchers can code up (or visually configure) their experimental protocols and then run them in Transcriptic's central, highly automated 'biocenter' in an on-demand way. Customers have no upfront capital costs and pay for only what they use. Life science research today is incredibly slow, error-prone, monotonous, and expensive with researchers spending many hours a day every day just moving small volumes of liquids from one place to another. We're building a long-term company to completely change the way life science research and development is done.
We're a rapidly growing startup, now 30-something people, well funded ($15M) and have customers at places like Harvard, MIT, Caltech, UCSF, and Stanford. You'd be able to work on interesting science and hard technology in a small, all technical team with lots of freedom and resources.
We're looking for a highly talented full-stack web developer. On top of our robotic work cells is a slew of internal services as well as a Rails app that acts as our lab information management system and customer-facing UI. Challenges range from building rich, interactive interfaces for composing protocols to presenting analytical data generated by the lab back to the user. We use d3, React, and CoffeeScript today, but you'd be free to choose your own tools and libraries.
We're also looking for bioengineers to apply math to hard biological problems, ranging from liquid handling optimization to reasoning about how "identical" reagents diverge over time to interfere with reproducibility. You'll have an opportunity to do original research with internal capacity, too.
A biology background is preferred but not strictly necessary for outstanding people.
