at Mendelian Genomics in London

(₤28000 - ₤32000 per year)

Mendelian is helping clinical doctors diagnose rare genetic diseases.
We are looking for a Lead Engineer who can help us grow our current Spark Pandas Scypy Tensor Flow codebase, as well as exploring and implementing new technologies and frameworks.

Get in touch if you want to play a key role in a high-impact growing startup — and if you are cool with building stuff that can save people’s lives. (!)

Product
The company built a medical search engine to support physicians in identifying genes that can explain certain rare conditions. Rare diseases (all 7,000 known types combined) afflict over 250m people (more than cancer!) and unfortunately, take as much as several years to diagnose. The first version of the tool has attracted acclaim from researchers and practicing physicians and is in use in several hospitals across Europe and USA.

The Founders met at Singularity University in 2014 and the larger team met at Imperial College’s Incubator. The team now comprises a valuable blend of skills and experiences, from Computer Science graduates to MBAs and Health professionals. We have recently relocated in Old Street yayy

Tech
Our tech stack is constantly evolving to incorporate new ideas that keep us right on the bleeding edge. Our existing platform is primarily Django/React/Postgres but we are advocates of using the right tools for the right job (#Haskell anyone?). We also have several Machine Learning and Data Science components as well so a strong mathematical background would help.

We need people willing to take on hard real-world challenges and help us find solutions while building scalable and robust platforms around DNA and big data. If you’re still reading, apply already.

Bonus if:
You love stats
You love Bayesian inference
You love NLP
You love graphs
You can bake

We’re hiring hard (FrontEnd, BackEnd, Design), just give us a shout if it sounds like you could be contributing, we’re always on the lookout for smart people.


This is a full-time, not a freelance/agency role, based in London.
The nature of the position and its challenges are not meant for short-term dedication; we are looking for a driven team member not a contractor.
