Next-gen genomic sequencing is a new frontier. The complexity and sheer size of the data in the life sciences will make astronomical data problems look modest. Roche Sequencing is not only changing science, but we are changing lives.
Our software teams are laying the groundwork for the future by developing powerful bioinformatics algorithms, data analysis tools, and software/systems infrastructures so researchers and clinicians can make better health decisions faster. The path to curing cancer lies in ones and zeros.
Ask yourself: Do you want to work on another “me too” app, ad-tech system, e-commerce platform. Or would you rather build products scientists and others in the life sciences will use to diagnose, find treatments, and eventually beat diseases like cancer? Our team builds highly scalable, reliable software, and secure systems for better diagnostics.
In this role, your voice will be heard and you’ll be the specialist for mission-critical decisions. You will be responsible for implementation/improvement of software development practices, release management methodologies and software deployment strategies, optimizing and fine-tuning for best 'uptime' and performance.
