As a member of our R&D team you will help create, maintain, test, and innovate on our experimental tools and data sets. You will turn prototypes based on theoretical insights into fully-fledged tools ready for production use in a variety of real-world environments, laying the groundwork for the next generation in the field.
Skills & Requirements
An ideal candidate would have:
- experience developing, especially in Python
- a strong background in data science
- experience dealing with real-world data problems such as versioning, ensuring reproducibility and traceability
- meticulous attention to data and a voracious appetite for research in all its forms
- exposure to C/C++
And we also think that:
- experience with genomics is a plus
- experience working with databases is a plus
We don't require the candidates to meet every single requirement on our list.
