Backend Developer - Cutting edge health tech startup

We are looking for a highly skilled backend developer with experience in at least one of these languages (Python/PHP/Node.js) and some dev ops (AWS) knowledge. As an early stage start-up we need someone with a can-do attitude who is happy to jump in and get their hands dirty which could be anything from learning GO, building a Lambda microservice or optimizing an AWS pipeline. You will get the chance to work with numerous different technologies, have a say in how we drive the company forward and learn a ton along the way.
Working alongside a team of PhD data scientists and bioinformaticians you will get to work on a cutting edge microservice architecture on AWS using serverless (Python/node.js) working with HUGE data (each DNA sample is 100GB…) to build a ground breaking epigenetics platform which is the first of its kind in the world.

Essential Skills:

  • AWS (Lambda/EC2/S3/ECS etc)
  • Happy on the command line
  • Agile development
  • Familiarity with mobile and web development
  • Work as part of a focused team, but at the same time self-driven and able to work independently

Nice to have:
  • Some dev ops (CI/CD/Docker)
  • Experience with other languages such as Python/JavaScript (React/Node) etc
  • Experience working on high scalability websites
  • Experience with big data
  • Have worked with genetics data
  • Experience with serverless and microservices architecture
