Backend Software Developer

About us:

NRGene develops cutting edge genomic analysis solutions which are reshaping research and development in agriculture worldwide. Our unique mix of highly experienced computational biologists, algorithm designers and software developers, creates novel solutions to help feed the world in the coming years. NRGene’s products are already being used by some of the largest and most sophisticated seed companies, animal breeders, and academia. We look forward to expanding with new opportunities and with the challenges that lay ahead.
The next generation of computational services is required to process and analyze the massive datasets of biological-data pouring in today from all around us: human genomes, plants and agriculture. We are developing the algorithms, data models and infrastructures needed in order to solve these complex computational challenges – in an affordable, scalable and precise way.
As a backend developer you will be in charge of “making this all happen” – you will be given a lot of freedom, and a lot of responsibility – to develop, test, deploy and run these services in the real world.

 

Job description and Responsibilities:

  • Developing NRGene’s core bioinformatic infrastructure, from initial design all the way to productization. This includes choice of technologies and methodologies, cost and risk analysis, architectural design, devising and execution of work-plans and implementation – all the way down to the “gory details” needed to build and run a modern, high-quality, high-throughput service in production.
  • Collaborating closely with computational biologists, with other software engineers, and with IT specialists – to quickly and efficiently bring-to-market products in genomics analysis.
  • Contributing to the company’s growing engineering culture: we highly encourage innovation, open discussion, full ownership and responsibility, continual learning and self-improving, sharing and collaboration.


Professional Requirements:

  • BSc or MSc in CS / Math – a must.
  • 10+ years of hands-on experience in software development.
  • Strong algorithmic capabilities.
  • Experience with distributed computation – a must (experience with Apache Spark – an advantage).
  • Fluency in Java and Scala.
  • An understanding and appreciation of OO fundamentals, functional programming paradigms, principles of clean-code, and general craftsmanship in developing software.
  • Thorough understanding of testing methodologies and tools.
  • Experience solving issues around scalability and performance.
  • Experience with DevOps – a must: at least one provisioning tool (Ansible / Chef / Puppet), time-series repositories, monitoring and visualization tools, scripting, VM’s, OS tuning and CI/CD and the entire chain leading from developer workspaces to production. Experience with AWS – an advantage.
  • Solid understanding of the runtime environments we use – the JVM and Linux – a must.
  • Some background in biology – an advantage. A keen interest in knowing a lot more biology – a must.
  • Experience in working with both legacy and greenfield projects.
  • The ability to work under high degrees of uncertainty, to ask important questions, to prototype quickly, to create tight feedback loops, and to build high-quality, maintainable and safe products.
