  • Develop automated systems for building, testing, and deploying bioinformatics pipelines at scale.
  • Understand technical challenges and identify their solutions.

Qualifications

  • MS degree in computer science, bioinformatics, or similar OR
  • Bachelor degree in computer science, bioinformatics, or similar with equivalent experience.
  • Demonstrated experience programming in at least one compiled programming language (C/C++, C#, Rust, Go, etc.).
