Software Developer - Bioinformatics
We are looking for talented web developers to help us forge our way
into the field of bioinformatics. You will be responsible for
designing and developing quality software to support ongoing research
in this exciting field.
What you'll do
You will be responsible for engineering databases and applications
that process complex genomic data, as well as identify and analyze
similarities and differences arising from comparisons of genomes.
You'll be creating custom interactive visualization tools - designing
the data pipeline, standardizing, and transforming a variety of data
sets to prepare them for analysis and integration. You will work with
scientists and other developers to co-invent, architect, and launch
Our developers come from a range of education, experience, and
backgrounds. However, there are a few key things we're looking
for at Tyemill:
You are eager to learn. You dive into new
technologies; you want to be on top of the latest in web development.
You respect and yet scorn the established stack, constantly looking
out for what can best allow you to solve the given problem at hand.
You are independent and self driven. At Tyemill we
are our own managers. While others will offer support and guidance,
you will not have every minute of your day laid out for you. You
are the type of person who thrives in this environment, innovating
and progressing only because that is what you love.
You are an excellent communicator. Writing the code
is half the battle. You understand that to fully take advantage of
your team, you must be able to clearly express your ideas without
the code. Communication is what allows us to grow together as a
company and we all benefit from your communication skills.
You care about the domain. We all love the code...
sometimes too much. You are a person who wants to dig deep into the
heart of bioinformatics. You not only want to find solutions
through software but understand what it would mean for a person
using our applications, enabling you to develop even better
solutions as we go.
