    I don't have any funding to hire right now, but I'm always happy to chat about the industry and my experience building Hail (https://hail.is, https://github.com/hail-is/hail), a tool widely used by folks with large collections of human sequences.

    The other posters are not wrong about compensation. Total compensation is off by a factor of two to three.

    However, it is absolutely possible to work with a group of top-notch engineers on serious distributed systems & compilers in service of an excellent scientific-user experience. I know because I do. We are lucky to have a PI who respects and hires and diversity of expertise within his lab.

    I enjoy being deeply embedded with our users. I do not have to guess what they need or want because I help them do it every day.

    I also enjoy enmeshing engineering with statistics, mathematics, and biology. Work is more interesting when so many disciplines conspire towards the end of improved human health.

    We are seeking an associate software engineer interested in contributing to an open-source data visualization library for analyzing the biological impact human genetic variation. You will contribute to projects like gnomAD (https://gnomad.broadinstitute.org), the world's largest catalogue of human genetic variation used by hundreds of thousands of researchers and help us scale towards millions of genomes in the coming years. We are also developing next-generation tools for enabling genetic analyses of large biobanks across richly phenotyped individuals (https://genebass.org). In this role you will gain experience developing data-intensive web applications with Typescript, React, Python, Terraform, Google Cloud Platform, and will make use of the scalable data analysis library Hail (https://hail.is). Key to our success is growing a strong team with a diverse membership who foster a culture of continual learning, and who support the growth and success of one another. Towards this end, we are committed to seeking applications from women and from underrepresented groups. We know that many excellent candidates choose not to apply despite their capabilities; please allow us to enthusiastically counter this tendency.

    Please provide a CV and links previous work or projects, ideally with contributions visible on Github.
