Job Description

We are looking for a qualified Java Software Developer to build and maintain new functionality on top of our successful Genedata Screener software.

Thousands of scientists across the globe work with Genedata Screener in order to develop new, groundbreaking treatments for a multitude of diseases. They rely on our solutions to capture and analyze scientific data; to link this data to all their in-house knowledge; and to make the results available to the entire organization. The software is ready to operate in a wide range of research environments and serves multiple scientific applications out of the box. However, enabling interconnection with specific customer IT platforms, integrating new scientific instrumentation, or implementing cutting-edge research methods at times requires additional development.

This is where you come in. We need you to develop and deliver this additional functionality, enabling the scientist to extract more value from their experimental data. You will work in close contact with our scientific consulting and sales teams to understand the needs of the customer and formulate appropriate software development projects. Once your proposed solution has been approved internally and by the customer, you will be responsible for implementing and testing the functionality using our APIs as a foundation. Where appropriate, you will also install and maintain the functionality, as well as ensure the continuous operation of the entire system.

To succeed in this position, you should enjoy using your Java skills to build new solutions, thrive as an essential part of the team defining these solutions, excel at prioritization and self-organization, and be curious about how scientific data is generated, analyzed, and used to make decisions.

This full-time position is based at our headquarter in Basel, Switzerland.

Key Responsibilities

  • Develop new software functionalities for our customers on top of our existing APIs
  • Assist our scientific consulting and sales team in the technical specification of customer requirements
  • Support our customers in technical matters related to the installation and operation of the Genedata Screener
  • Provide customer-facing technical trainings both remotely and on-site

Your Profile

  • Minimum B.S. degree in a computer-, life-science, or engineering field
  • Proficiency programming in Java (proficiency in Python is a plus)
  • Demonstrated ability to master new technical skills and digest new information quickly
  • Demonstrated ability to work with legacy code and version-control systems (e.g. Git)
  • Good written and verbal communication skills in English
  • Driven to collaborate in a cross-functional environment
  • Ability to work in an agile development process
  • Proficiency working in a Linux/UNIX environment, including bash scripting
  • Ability to analyze complex technical environments, summarize status-quo, and perform gap analysis with resolution proposals
  • Experience in remote execution of installation, support, and verification
  • Knowledge of SQL and relational databases such as Oracle is a plus
  • Cloud operating environment knowledge is a plus
  • Knowledge within the biopharma R&D research industry is a plus
