You will collaborate with other stakeholders, such as product managers and hardware engineers, to define software requirements and specifications for instrument systems.
  2. Project Planning and Execution: You would be responsible for planning and coordinating software development projects, including setting project goals, allocating resources, and managing project timelines and budgets. You would ensure that projects are delivered on time and within budget while meeting quality standards.
  3. Collaboration: You would collaborate with cross-functional teams, such as lab robotics automation team, research product development team, product marketing team, project management, and customer experience and support teams, using the latest technologies to design & build the next generation of paradigm shifting, customer facing robotic automation software. You would also work closely with stakeholders to understand their requirements and provide technical expertise and support.
  4. Technology Evaluation and Adoption: You would stay updated with the latest advancements in software development technologies, tools, and frameworks. 
Background and Qualifications:
  • Full Stack experience is highly desired.
  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science or closely related science/engineering disciplines.
  • 8+ years of experience in software development for instrument software or scientific software.
  • Mastery in the C# programming language, Visual Studio, WIX installation, COM, and Microsoft technologies.
  • Proficiency in web-based UI design principles, including Angular and Typescript.
  • Strong knowledge of Agile methodologies, Git, and JIRA.
  • Familiarity with ISO 13485 standard for medical device quality management systems related to software development.
  • Experience with software validation and verification, including test protocol creation and execution.
  • Skills in creating comprehensive and compliant software documentation.
  • Preferred experience with liquid-handling instruments.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

This position offers an exciting opportunity to work on cutting-edge robotic automation software, collaborate with cross-functional teams, and contribute to decoding the secrets of the proteome.

Seer is an equal opportunity employer that values diversity and inclusion. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Our goal is to empower the scientific community with tools that help them to achieve exceptional outcomes by removing the technological barriers to studying the proteome. Our technology is designed to enable breakthrough studies to happen by taking deep proteomics from a pinhole to a panorama.

Over the last 15 years, the fields of genomics and transcriptomics have undergone an explosion in content and discovery, fueled by massively parallel technologies that made large-scale studies possible and tractable. Advancement in those fields have deepened our understanding of biology and ushered in new companies, applications and diagnostics solutions that impact everyday human life.

Similar capabilities have evaded the field of proteomics. As a result, researchers have been forced into a tradeoff: the scale of the study, or the depth of its coverage. Until now. We’re committed to eliminating the obstacles that have kept proteomics’ potential from matching the pace of advancements we’ve seen in other fields. We believe that unbiased, deep, rapid, large-scale proteomics can, and must, become accessible to the broad scientific community so that we may significantly advance our understanding of biology, health, and disease. And this will require solutions that allow researchers to accurately survey and analyze the full diversity of proteins across individuals, over time.
