Software Engineer (Full-Stack)

Posted 2 weeks ago


The convergence of laboratory automation, high-throughput assays, and machine learning is moving the medium of biological discovery to silicon. At LatchBio, our mission is to foster this revolution by creating a first-in-class platform that enables biologists to leverage the explosion of data that increases by orders of magnitude every year. Currently, biotechs waste huge sums of resources building data warehouses, analytical tools, and bioinformatic pipelines — effectively reinventing the wheel each time. We will accelerate what is possible and solve this drain by building and disseminating the data infrastructure of the biocomputing revolution, making medicine and biotech move faster. We believe life-saving therapies are hidden within unmade connections in disparate data centers and are pushing toward a future where every idle CPU is used to uncover these links.


  • We are looking for an experienced software engineer with deep knowledge of cloud infrastructure and software platforms to own the velocity, quality, and stability of our software products.
  • We are building our core biocompute platform on top of AWS, with a stack that spans Kubernetes (GKE), Docker, Flyte, Python, and React. 
  • Our software helps biologists run their computational workfows and get answers to their experiments, we need you to help us build the infrastructure that makes this possible.
  • Help build a culture of operational readiness by contributing to discussions and processes around code ownership, alerting, zero-downtime infrastructural upgrades, scalable integration testing. 

This job might be a great fit if you
