Lifebit is building the world’s first intelligent genomics platform that understands DNA data and generates meaningful insights.
We just closed an over $3M funding round from two major London funds after graduating from Techstars London 2017's cohort.
We are building a cloud-based cognitive system that can reason about DNA data like humans do. This offers researchers/R&D professionals, and their corresponding organisations (ie. pharmas), a highly scalable, modular and reproducible system that automates the analysis processes, learns from the data and provides actionable insights.
Our tech team is split into:
Engineering and Machine Learning:
Stack: Node JS, React, MongoDB
Building Lifebit’s platform.
Bioinformatics and Genomics:
Building Lifebit’s genomics modules: end-to-end solutions for specific operations and analysis.
We are hiring an experienced Lead Engineer with at least 5 years of experience in the role, to help us grow the team in a scalable and sustainable way. Together with Pablo, our CTO/CSO, you will oversee the engineering team but also actively develop the platform.
