We are BioStrand, a start-up company ready to disrupt omics analysis. We have developed a completely new methodology for analysing 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.
At BioStrand, our mission is to make omics data analysis available for everyone and reduce complexity. Our user interfaces need to mirror these aspirations. They must be powerful, intuitive and very easy to use. This means we need to make complex data analysis look easy. So, the design and implementation of the frontend web application is a very important part of the development process of our applications.
As the Lead UI Platform Engineer you are responsible for the further development of our SaaS platform. You will work in close collaboration with the data engineering and data science team to integrate the complex data analysis algorithms into the UI. You will have to make decisions concerning architecture, design and user experience keeping in mind that performance, scalability, security and quality are very important. You will be the go-to-person for anything UI related and so you will be hands-on programming to improve and extend the current UI using the React framework. You will also be working on the design and implementation of the backend APIs.
Together with the CTO you will make up a roadmap with a set of deliverables. You will be responsible for planning and delivering the different stages of the platform in time. You will report on your progress directly to the CTO and CEO.
Join us and put your stamp on the design and visuals of our technology! Together, we will build the genomic analysis tools of the future!
