Job Description

Muse Bio is building ForgeSuite, an enterprise-level genome design platform aimed at helping biochemical engineers rapidly search sequence space to find variants with improved catalytic and phenotypic profiles. Inside ForgeSuite, users will have access to several modules including ForgeCrafter and ForgeAnalyzer. Customers will input specifications for building libraries of genetic variants and place orders for DNA editing kits using ForgeCrafter. Once a library of genetic variants has been created, clients will analyze NGS results of phenotypic selection winners with ForgeAnalyzer, which can be used to inform subsequent rounds of variant design. ForgeSuite is a highly integrated platform, providing individual User and Group accounts and must ensure customer data is protected using bleeding edge security standards and best practices.
