Software Engineer - Robotics, Machine Learning, And Python/Django! at Counsyl

San Francisco,CA,United StatesApr 23, 2014

Software is at the heart of Counsyl!

The vast majority of our operations are powered by our own custom-built infrastructure on a Python/Django/Postgres stack, from ordering to lab processing to billing. We’re building new tools, new workflows, and new infrastructure to solve the challenging problems of a technology startup involved with not just bits, but also interconnected physical components like lab robotics and patient samples.

Don’t be intimidated if you don’t have a genomics background; solving these problems fundamentally requires software solutions. We’re looking for the best and brightest software engineers — strong generalists with solid CS fundamentals and practical software engineering intuition — to help us scale up genomics to billions of users.


  • BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • Strong software engineering fundamentals: design, testing, version control
  • Significant independent programming experience as demonstrated by a GitHub account, personal web page, or prior experience.

We like to see experience with:

  • Python, Django, CoffeeScript, Backbone.js, Bootstrap, HTML5, CSS
  • NumPy, SciPy, scikit-learn
  • Relational database systems, such as PostgreSQL
  • Unix, Git, and other command line tools

Perks and Benefits:

  • Competitive compensation and benefits:
  • Generous equity package in a fast-growing startup
  • Catered meals every day plus a fully stocked kitchen
  • On-site gym access to work it off
  • Dry cleaning and laundry service
  • Relocation provided
