Cloud Engineer - Biotech, Genetic Profiling, Big Data

Software: Java, Scala, AWS, APIs, Security, microservices, scalable systems

About the company:

Founded in 2015, my client is an innovative Biotech company working in conjunction with Imperial College Institute of Biomedical Engineering.

They have a brand new product and service that guides you to make healthier choices based on your DNA profile. Their technology pinpoints certain locations within specific genes and refers that information to an application. Results are uploaded to a cloud database that is synchronised with the user's phone.

They will be launching their flagship service in January 2019 in CES, Las Vegas, the biggest and most prominent Consumer Electronics Show in the world. They are currently developing the second, cosmetic, application due for retail launch by the end of 2019.

Who you're working with:

The company was founded by a multi-award winning inventor, innovator and tech entrepreneur with over 80 granted patents in the field of consumer healthcare and microchip technology and a published biologist, geneticist and leukaemia researcher.

They are a team of geneticists, molecular biologists, bioinformaticians, dieticians, formulation scientists, software and hardware engineers, anthropologists, behavioural analysts and deep learning engineers and consist of individuals working with us remotely all over the world (e.g. Australia, China, Germany).

What you can expect:

The role is working with the Cloud Team. You will be working on the application with a combination of technologies and practices: Java, Scala, AWS, API, First Approach APIs, Application Security, Data Security, microservices, serverless architecture, scalable systems.

They're based in a state of the art Biotech hub in West London - modern offices (they're about to purchase the entire top floor of their building). You'll be joining 3 others in the team and reporting into the Principal Data Engineer.

Who should apply?

They're looking for a bright enthusiastic Cloud Engineer. Ideally you'll have a few years of commercial experience in a similar engineering position. You don't need to have worked in a Biotech environment before but exposure to working with some the aforementioned technologies is essential for the role.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnerships, pregnancy or maternity or age.
