Job Description

About the Seven Bridges Product team:

We are scientists, engineers, communicators, and data lovers. We are musicians, homebrewers, yogis, cyclists, and chess players. We are passionate about how, when brought together, genomics and technology can speed biomedical research to improve human health. We build software for scientists that helps them connect the world’s biomedical information to speed the pace of discovery. 

About Program Management at Seven Bridges:

Our products both reach, and are developed by, individuals with diverse geographical and technical backgrounds. Program managers keep the big picture in focus by integrating multi-dimensional information, defining and clearly communicating priorities, and ultimately ensuring that the products we build are loved by the people we build them for. 

About the Job:

  • You will interact with diverse external stakeholders, from executive level to technical staff at organizations ranging from federal governments and large pharmaceutical companies to academic, nonprofit and biotech organizations.
  • You will define the priorities, guide decisions, and eliminate road blocks to enable the team to build the products to transform biomedical research. 
  • You will research, understand, and prioritize the needs of our users -- and then teach them (as well as our internal teams) how to get the most from the features and products that you help build. 
  • You will gather feedback from researchers using our products and incorporate it into the development roadmap to ensure continual improvement. 
  • You will lead large, cross-team initiatives and ensure seamless communication throughout project life cycles. 
  • You will deeply understand genomics and technology  -- you’ll stay on its leading edge by attending and presenting at conferences, reading avidly and interviewing scientists.


  • You have demonstrated expertise in bioinformatics or genomics (typically a PhD or equivalent) and/or experience in a software development environment (as a product manager, software engineer or engineering manager). 
  • You’re an excellent written and verbal communicator — people like you, and you make things happen.
  • You have a proven ability to handle ambiguity and work collaboratively with globally located internal and external teams. 
  • You’re comfortable engaging with scientists, giving presentations, and using data-driven techniques to make decisions. 
  • You have a familiarity with command-line interfaces and scripting languages.

* Successful Program Managers come to us from a variety of backgrounds. You may not have all of these qualifications, but you will have a proven track record of curiosity, passion, and willingness to learn.

How to Apply
  • If you would like to work with us to help us build the next generation of genomic analysis tools, please submit a recent CV/resume and cover letter. 
  • All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or national origin.
