We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, highly motivated Software Developer to work in the Variation Team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK. The successful applicant will work with a focused team of developers, biologists and user support personnel to provide a world leading reference genetic variation bioinformatics resource as part of the European Variation Archive (EVA) and European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) projects. The software development lifecycle of the team is managed through agile methods including daily scrum and will require the structured use of confluence, jira and git in a team programming environment, including code review and possible pair programming. You will also engage in both internal and external facing collaborations and will have the opportunity to gain expertise both in terms of technical software engineering and biological scientific data modelling. In addition, you will implement scalable databases, ETL pipeline as well as java library and REST APIs for the management of genetic variations data across a wide range of species. The EBI is part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and is Europe's leading provider of information services to biological researchers in academia and industry.
