We are looking for an extroverted technical software engineer and product manager to bridge the technical and business worlds by managing and building out Golden Helix’s bioinformatics products. If you have software and bioinformatics expertise, love building user-centered products, and want to work at a company where you’ll have a major impact, this could be the right career for you.
With your experience in bioinformatics, including next generation sequencing based clinical informatics pipelines, you will report to the VP of Product and Engineering and will be responsible for interfacing with both end-users and partners to understand and define requirements and implementation strategies for existing and custom software products and services. You will be managing project schedules, balancing time, cost and scope with your understanding of the technical complexity and value-driven priorities of product features. In addition to product and project management, you will also be a hands-on software engineer, developing core product features that leverage your biological/genomic background. You will become an expert in command line bioinformatics tools (such as bwa, htslib, freebayes, picard, etc.) to lead custom integration projects.
You will develop an expert-level understanding of Golden Helix’s products, and give scientific presentations and webinars on our products and market best practices, as well as provide occasional training and software demonstrations to prospects (about half of your time will be spent communicating with end-users, stakeholders, and customers via phone and webinar). As a voice of the company, you will also generate content for marketing, including blogs and e-news articles.
