Hello! We are Biomage, a small startup deeply passionate about human health. We work in thearea of single cell sequencing analysis - a new technology that has taken research biology bystorm. Our mission is to build a world-class single cell analysis platform in the cloud to enablebiologists to turn their datasets into meaningful biology and make discoveries.We are working with some of the best research institutions: our biggest customers are HarvardMedical School, Glasgow Polyomics and Edinburgh Genomics who are also our early adopters. We currently have a waiting list of more customers eager to use the platform!
The project The project is a cloud-based platform, deployed to AWS. The single cell analysis part of theplatform is a Python service that computes single cell analysis tasks using R (e.g. Seurat) orpython (e.g. Scanpy) packages and returns them back to the front end side (React, Node.js, alldeployed to Kubernetes, AWS). The platform is still in a very early development stage - thereare many core features and analysis tasks yet to be built
What we offer As part of our team, you will have the unique opportunity to: ●Change the world by building tools that enable improvement of human health. ●Help us shape the culture and the direction of Biomage as the company grows. ●Shares package, laptop and any other essential technical equipment for full-time jobcandidates. ●Competitive salary. ●Reading club - books to help with your professional development are on us to help withyour personal development ●Home cleaning for full-time job candidates - we will find somebody to take over some ofthose mundane tasks to help you focus on what matters most to you.
What you can expect ●An agile, diverse and multidisciplinary team ●A supportive, inclusive and transparent working environment where team mates learnfrom and help each other all the time. ●A place to look at things differently, challenge and offer solutions. ●You will be working in a (still) small startup where the whole company consists of ~10people. This creates a unique opportunity to make a significant impact and actively drivechange in the technology, direction and culture of the startup. ●A fast-paced environment of continuous improvement where you optimise for impact andvelocity.
What we are looking for We are looking for a bioinformatician who is experienced in single cell analysis to join our teamand help us build a world-class product that will enable biologists to turn their datasets intomeaningful biology.
As Biomage’s bioinformatician, you will work closely with the engineering team, the CSO and Peter Kharchenko to build the bioinformatics part of the features, requested by the users. Untilthe platform supports end-to-end single cell sequencing analysis, you will help us onboard earlyadopters by writing and running data processing scripts for our early adopters’ datasets.
This position is for 100% remote work, where the official time zone of the engineering team isthe one in the UK (GMT, GMT + 1). In terms of working hours, we are flexible: both full-time andpart-time work are available, where full-time work is preferred.
