Job Description

We have launched a revolutionary wellness company. We created this company to invent the future of health and create a new industry, Scientific Wellness. Our mission is to empower clients to optimize their overall health and wellness. We give them personalized actionable recommendations to improve their wellness – regardless of where they are starting out - based specifically on their unique data.

We start by establishing a 360-degree baseline view of our clients—learning about them at the deepest levels by looking at their genome, blood work, gut microbiome, lifestyle, attitudes and behaviors. Then, we pair each client with their dedicated coach – a Registered Dietitian who explains their data and provides clear, actionable behavioral recommendations. One of our primary goals is to maintain a relationship with our clients over the long term (e.g. years) so as to continue to collect data and observe transitions to disease and wellness. We’re dedicated to serving a community of people who have decided there’s a better way to take control of their health and wellbeing.

We have an opening for a Bioinformatics Scientist.

The bioinformatics scientist works with the research team to computationally identify and validate complex biological associations with diseases, wellness, and behavioral phenotypes. This position will involve working with genome-wide sequencing data, along with a broad range of phenotype observations, clinical labs, microbiome data, metabolite data, and activity data.

This full-time position reports to the Senior BioInformatics Scientist and requires working in a Seattle-based office.


Required Qualifications:

  • PhD or equivalent doctoral degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, systems biology, biophysics, computer science, or related field. M.S./B.S. considered with relevant experience.

  • 5 years in computational biology or directly related experience.

  • Experience in Python, SQL, C/C++ and other relevant languages required. IPython, pandas and scikit experience preferred.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience working in a cloud computing environment highly desirable.
