ℹ️ About the Position

Biodock runs AI bioanalysis in the cloud, which users access through our dashboard. We are expanding functionality to run AI models, manage data, and visualize results within our dynamic app, and looking for talented engineers to own the application and drive development with backend engineers from the ground up.

This position says founding engineer. We really mean that. We're a team of 4 plus 2 contractors right now (5/6 are software engineers), so you'd be one of the first engineers and make a massive impact. You'd build critical features from the ground up, and deliver 5x faster than you have at previous jobs. We're looking for someone who is serious about building, and who can wear many hats.

We just hired some amazing engineers - full-stack engineer from Facebook and an ML/backend engineer from Pinterest - work with the best!
