Senior Software Engineer – Full Stack
Location: Pleasanton, CA & San Francisco, CA
Fueled by equal parts scientific vision and determined passion, we are delivering unprecedented innovation to short-read sequencing technologies and transforming how genomic information is accessed. You will feel the 10x difference the moment you enter our offices and labs. There’s a dynamic energy here, and we’re looking for the best of the best to be a part of it. We are seeking talented professionals excited to build new technology that advances scientific research while growing their career within a dynamic, supportive environment.
The Software Platform team at 10x Genomics is hiring Full Stack Software Engineers at all levels. We're responsible for a scientific computing platform that is used by external and internal scientists to process terabytes of complex genomic data. Our team is responsible for implementing the "front-door" to a lot of our scientific applications as well as building the scalable architecture that allows us -- and our customers -- to process genomic data at petabyte scale. You will have the opportunity to work on a number of projects from interactive websites to novel storage architectures.
We are hiring strong software engineers who are ready to learn about new technologies and are interested in getting exposure to the biotechnology and genomics industry; we do not require any prior knowledge of biology! The ideal candidate will be an independent thinker who is able to participate in all aspects of requirements gathering, design, implementation, release and iteration. Specifically, we want developers who like autonomy and are ready to take ownership of critical projects.
