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. 

            We are offering an outstanding opportunity for a highly motivated software engineer to join our team. Successful candidates will be responsible for building a security and penetration testing framework, ensuring security standards, optimizing data flow from server to client, analyzing and optimizing core algorithms, and optimizing database design. The ideal candidate will possess cloud architecture development and deployment modeling experience, a solid background mitigating network security risks and maintaining data encryption standards, a broad understanding of algorithm complexity analysis and optimization, machine learning, database design, and best practices in unit vs integration vs end-to-end testing. Cross-functional communication skills, and the ability to work on complex, multi-disciplinary teams is a key requirement for this role.
