Repositive is driving medical research forward by improving accessibility and enhancing discoverability with respect to genomics data. With our global business network, we are building a marketplace for the users and providers of preclinical cancer models and related services - speeding up development of new cancer treatments.

As part of our services we are providing comprehensive searches across collections of cancer models from our partner network. To deliver this high-quality service, we maintain a database of cancer model metadata and cancer model molecular characterisations and annotated genetic variants.

For this role we are looking for a software developer to develop the UI our customers and internal team will use to query our cancer models database and to contribute to the automation of search processes. This means a keen interest on user interaction and experience looking at the problems from the user perspective.

Our technical stack is comprised mainly of a React/Redux frontend interacting with a Rust API. These and other services run on GCS on a Kubernetes cluster and our infrastructure and deployment processes require little to zero maintenance.

Being an early stage startup, our tools and processes are subject to ongoing improvement, so the ability to adapt to changing tasks and responsibilities is essential to this role.

We are looking for a software developer who wants to make a real impact on progressing cancer drug discovery, speeding up the time it takes to bring new treatments to patients.
