About Counsyl Engineering

Over the last few years, we've grown from a dorm room start to become
one of the largest clinical genome centers in the world. Our pre-
pregnancy genomic test is now prescribed by physicians for more than
2.5% of all births in the United States.

As you might imagine, handling this kind of volume puts us in terra
incognita. Our situation is similar to the one faced by Amazon in the
90s, before anyone knew how to scale an operation with such highly
interconnected physical and informational components.

To solve the problems associated with scaling the medical genome, we
hire generalists rather than specialists. Our engineers are pragmatists
who know when to use machine learning and when to use a simple regex,
and understand in what sense those approaches are at different ends of a
continuum. Many did not have a bioinformatics background before they
joined, but all had strong fundamentals in data structures and

Experience in general means little to us as genomics is a young field;
working code means quite a lot more. If this sounds like your kind of
company, we invite you to apply.

More about us: http://www.themuse.com/companies/counsyl

About you:

You should be working towards a BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science (or
equivalent) and have significant independent programming experience as
demonstrated by a GitHub account, personal web page, or prior

You should also be a generalist, interested in rotating through the
engineering team and working in one or more of these areas:

-Genomics: design, validate, and optimize clinical genomic assays for
rare Mendelian variants

-Machine Learning and Data Science: extract meaning out of one of the
largest clinical genomic datasets in the world

-Robotics: automate and scale our backend to do more clinical sequencing
and genotyping than anyone has ever done before

-UI/UX: design the first widely adopted user interface for the medical

-Clinical Integration: solve the wide variety of practical issues
associated with translating genomics into a clinical context

-Infrastructure: build and deploy the hardware and software systems that
support secure, large-scale computations on genomic datasets

From a skills perspective, you should have familiarity with several of
the following technologies. We obviously donât expect you to know
everything on the list, but you should be nodding to yourself by the end
of it.

-Python: Django, Numpy, Scipy, Cython

-HTML/CSS/JS: Coffeescript, Backbone.js, Twitter Bootstrap 2, HTML5,
Chrome Web Inspector

-C++: STL, gcc/g++, Boost, C++11

-Functional Programming: Haskell, underscore.js, functional reactive

-Data Science and Visualization: GNU GSL, CUDA, Netlib/LAPACK, graphviz,
R, Matlab, Matplotlib, Numerical Recipes

-DevOps/System Administration: Amazon Web Services, Puppet, nginx,
nagios, Apache, Fabric

-APIs: REST, JSON, SOA, and all that jazz

-Biological Databases: NCBI, UCSC, 1000 Genomes, Hapmap, UK10K

-Sequencing/Computational Biology: NGS pipelines, GATK, FreeBayes,
samtools/pysam, bedtools/pybedtools, SNPEff

-Unix/Linux: bash/zsh, emacs/vim, git, GNU toolchain

-PostgreSQL: psycopg2, hstore, replication

-Security: skipfish, SSL, fuzz testing, preventing XSS & SQL injections

Again, please consider these guidelines, not absolutes. For example, if
you know Chef, we figure you can learn Puppet, and if you know Ruby, we
figure you can learn Python.

In general, you should enjoy taking care of the practical last mile
problems needed to actually achieve a societal ROI on the world's
multibillion dollar investment in the Human Genome Project.

What you'll do:
-Move fast without breaking things :)
-Start in the areas you're familiar with, and grow to work on the full
-Work closely with a small, tight-knit team
-Develop algorithms and code for all aspects of clinical genomics, from
machine learning to supply chain optimization to insurance billing
-Quite literally save lives with your keyboard

What you'll get:
-Competitive compensation and start-up equity package
-Excellent health insurance
-Catered meals every day plus a fully stocked fridge
-Gym access to work it off
-MacBook Pro, 30" monitor, iPad, iPhone, and all the gadgets you need
