Lead Software Engineer - do smthg that matters

at Mendelian Genomics in London

(₤28000 - ₤32000 per year)

Mendelian is helping doctors diagnose rare genetic diseases.
We're looking for a software engineer to help us grow our 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 save people’s lives. (!)

Product
The company built a medical search engine supporting physicians in identifying genes that can explain certain rare conditions. Rare diseases (all 7,000 known types combined) afflict over 350m people (more than cancer!) and take on average 7 years to diagnose in clinics. The product is already in use in several hospitals across the world and it has attracted acclaim from top researchers and clinical doctors in the field.

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

Tech
Our stack is constantly evolving to incorporate new ideas that keep us on the edge. Our existing platform is in 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 statistics components so a strong math background would help.

We need people willing to take on hard real-world challenges to help us find solutions while building scalable and robust platforms around DNA and big data.

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.
