We are BioStrand, a start-up company ready to disrupt omics analysis. We have developed a completely new methodology for analyzing omics data. We offer bio-informatics tools and provide in house target discovery and lead identification for the development of drugs, gene therapy, biomarkers etc.
Here, at BioStrand, we are passionate about building future-proof bio-informatics tools. We are about to launch our first application ‘Retrieve and Relate’.
We are now looking for a creative, daring and entrepreneurial mind to strengthen our core team and help setup our clients so that they can start unraveling the mysteries hidden deep in their omics data. We need you as the go-to-person to make sure that all the technicalities related to connecting clients to our applications are solved smoothly. Your deep knowledge of bioinformatics makes sure that you have a natural understanding of these processes and can communicate at the right level with our clients’ research departments. To be clear, your job is not consultancy- or sales-oriented. You will, for example, be responsible for implementing custom pipelines to ingest our clients’ data. At the same time, you will play a role in the development of our next-generation bioinformatics tools. You contribute to shaping and designing them according to our clients’ interests and needs. Because our tools do not build on the traditional bioinformatics algorithms, outside-the-box thinking is your natural attitude. You are always looking to further improve the efficiency of our processes. You will work in close collaboration with core team members.
Together with the CTO you will make up a roadmap with a set of deliverables. You will report on your progress directly to the CTO and CEO.
