Fancy using Go to build a platform from scratch to help automate experiments within Life Sciences?

Are you an advocate of automation, keeping things simple and getting things done rather than perfect?

My client is an innovative scale-up based in London. They are building an integrated automation platform (hardware and software) with Go to help the Life Science industry. The software platform integrates with various robots and other devices to reduce manual steps and improve the throughput of labs. 

They have asked me to find some backend engineers for them - from senior to principal to help them build the software platform to help scientists in the life sciences space to design, monitor and automate their experiments. This is really impactful work.

They are using an event-driven, microservices architecture In Golang, with a bit of Python nearer the hardware. They are hosted on AWS and use Kafka and DataDog. They use both SQL and NoSQL databases. 

For this role you need to have a solid understanding of API design and documentation and it would be great if you had: 

  • Understanding of database internals
  • Familiarity with gRPC
  • Familiarity with AWS services (ECS, RDS)

There is also an additional role:

Senior backend engineer - Planning: This role is focused on solving the planning challenge of process workflows in life-science laboratories - orchestrating robots from different vendors.

For this role you should have: 

Graph Theory

  • Commercial experience with planning problems.
  • 3 years of commercial experience as a software engineer.

This is a hybrid remote position - Ideally they would like you in the office 1 day per week. 

You must be located in the UK. It's not possible to work remotely from outside the UK. 

Visa Sponsorship is possible only for exceptional candidates with 8 years+ experience
