Strateos(YC W15) | Front End and Back End Software Engineers, Product Managers | Menlo Park, CA | https://strateos.com | FULL TIME; ONSITE & REMOTE
Strateos is turning life science into an information technology by creating a fully automated cloud wet lab. Scientists anywhere can define and (reproducibly!) run experiments over the internet on-demand and without investing up-front in a lab facility.
The Strateos Common Lab Environment (SCLE) takes Autoprotocol (http://autoprotocol.org/), a high-level JSON description of a biological protocol, and executes it on our custom-built robotic workcells. The protocols we handle routinely involve solving constraint programming models with thousands of variables and constraints in order to find the best plan that fulfills the scientist's biological intent.
Scientists manage their experiments through our web application or via our API. We provide a single platform that controls scientific devices from many vendors in a unified way, and an interface to control our automated labs.
Tech stack includes: Linux, Scala, RabbitMQ, Rails, Typescript, React, Ansible, Postgres
Benefits include: medical/dental/vision insurance; catered lunch and dinner and a fully stocked kitchen when onsite; flexible vacation policy; 401(k) with matching; gym and commuter reimbursement; and education reimbursement up to $3,000/year.
Rubin Observatory/SLAC (Stanford) | Lead Engineer/"Scientific Computing Specialist"| Menlo Park, CA
We are looking for a talented Scientific Computing Specialist to lead the team responsible for designing, developing and maintaining the scientific computing infrastructure of the Rubin US data facility at SLAC (USDF). The Vera C. Rubin Observatory will conduct a 10-year Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) starting in early 2024. The LSST will deliver a 500 petabyte set of images, to be processed at the Rubin data facilities to provide a database of trillions of measurements of billions of astronomical objects, which will address some of the most pressing questions about the structure and evolution of the universe and the objects in it.
* The USDF will service all Rubin scientists, including ALL U.S. astronomers and also service many other astronomers around the world in partnering countries. You would also be coordinating with partner data facilities in France, the UK, and more.
* This position is classified as "Information Systems Specialist" which is above Senior Software Developer at Stanford. This is a position that would lead other Senior Software Developers, Scientists, and Admins.
* Remote might be a possibility
* The entire stack is a mix of on-premise HPC/kubernetes/Object Stores, geospatial distributed database, GCP, an advanced "Science Platform" built off of Jupyterlab on k8s with a large footprint of user-facing REST APIs supporting it, a large C++/Python codebase, etc... An ideal candidate would be familiar with most of those things.
