Synthego recently established a new research team that is focused on inventing, designing and building new and innovative hardware solutions with the explicit goal of transforming a multi-billion dollar industry. We are looking for an Instrument Software Engineer who is inspired by the possibility of being at the bleeding edge of hardware innovation and having a big impact on the future of biotech. This is an extremely exciting opportunity in which you’ll be joining a team of incredibly talented engineers in a race to build Synthego’s next hardware platform.
As the first Software Engineer on the team you’ll be directly responsible for writing the code that is powering our prototypes of novel biotech instrumentation. You’ll be taking on a lot of technical ownership, provide technical leadership with regard to software and quickly prototype novel ideas. Your work will span from writing low level drivers for actuators and sensors, to high level logic and scheduling, writing control loops, interfacing with APIs of 3rd party biotech instrumentation, logging data to AWS and visualizing this data in Tableau.
You’ll be part of a small motivated team that is moving fast. And it’s early days. This means you’ll have plenty of opportunity to contribute beyond writing code - by contributing ideas, proposing & executing experiments in the lab, and by innovating and iterating on the overall system architecture.
