Core Team - Senior Backend Software Engineer at Synthego
Redwood City, CA, US
Synthego is transforming scientists into designers with the first fully automated molecular biology lab. Lab automation is no cakewalk, though. Any given order moves through dozens of instruments, and our factory can manage throughput in the thousands. To orchestrate the chaos, our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) sits as manager of all scientists and instruments. LIMS both juggles the task of coordinating all factory systems and analyzing the resulting instrument data generated.
Synthego moves fast. New technologies, instruments, workflows, and optimizations are constantly introduced onto the factory floor fueling our ever growing pursuit of cutting edge products. Consequently, our LIMS team must also move fast. As Synthego’s brain, our LIMS must properly model, track, and illuminate everything that happens in our factory empowering production to maintain their high level of operational excellence.
