About Encodia
Encodia is a rapidly growing platform company that is developing a new generation of protein analysis tools based on single-molecule protein sequencing. Our goal is to make protein sequencing easy and ubiquitous by using a novel reverse-translation technology that turns peptide sequences into DNA. The DNA can be read by a DNA sequencer, providing a path to breakthrough proteomics research at a scale that is not practical or cost-effective using current technologies.

Job Summary
We are seeking to recruit a bioinformatics scientist with experience in developing algorithms, creating machine learning models, and analyzing complex data to help us develop algorithms to enable analysis of novel forms of proteomics data.
