Full-Time R & Python Developer @ London, England, United Kingdom

Desktop Genetics – Posted by deskgen London, England, United Kingdom

Job Description

Desktop Genetics builds software that enables scientists to discover and treat the root genetic causes of disease. We are a team of scientists, engineers, designers, and developers with offices in London and Boston and together we’ve developed the DESKGEN platform for CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing. Founded in 2012, Desktop Genetics is venture backed by leading biotech investors and supports customers in the UK, USA, Japan, and beyond.
The Role
You are a skilled R and Python developer or engineer keen to take on a new challenge. You are keen to learn new skills and techniques, not afraid of what you don’t know and convinced that the only forward is robust, testable production quality code. You will work alongside the CTO and Bioinformatics team to integrate new tools and packages into the DESKGEN platform, using the underlying tooling and APIs of the bioinformatics,  data science, and front-end development teams. The backend code base is Python (Pyramid/Flask) with C/C++ extensions organized into an ecosystem of microservices. You should be fluent in writing R and Python. No Biology or Bioinformatics experience required.
You will be in a fast-paced environment, working on different and varying projects over time. You are a self-starter, not afraid to jump in and learn new concepts, not afraid to try your hand at unfamiliar tasks, and not afraid to ask when lost.
