bringing Go people to Go jobs

London, UK

Do you want to help biologists in the race to cure cancer?

The Project

Named by the World Economic Forum as one of the world’s 30 Technology Pioneers, my client is re-imagining how we work with biology, exponentially improving the speed and quality of the final results. This is made possible through their high-level language and operating system for labs which is already impacting how scientists work with biology in major companies like Dow, Merck and GSK.

They have recently secured Series B funding and moved into fantastic new offices. They are expanding heavily this year and have asked me to find more senior software engineers. 

I have worked closely with this client for 2.5 years and can vouch that they have genuinely extraordinary people working in an open, collaborative, and friendly culture undertaking challenging, groundbreaking and exciting work
