Data Team - Data 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. All of these machines and samples generate a lot of data that we can learn from. Synthego is looking for a Data Engineer to join our core software team to help us extract insights from our data sources by building robust scalable infrastructure to enable easy access.
Inside our ever-evolving laboratory, we are developing and bringing in new instruments, innovating new products, and pushing our existing capabilities to the limit. Clear, easy access to our data is critical to our ability to make quick, accurate decisions and to execute Synthego’s philosophy of rapid prototyping and innovation.
