Platomics develops a global marketplace for personalized medicine to make the future of molecular diagnostics available today. We are a young vibrant team and apply the most advanced computing technologies to enable big data processing and analysis in healthcare. Our backgrounds are in bioinformatics, genetics, software development, and mathematics. As a Bioinformatics Engineer you will work at the core of the Platomics team, where you have the opportunity to directly influence the way how personalized medicine is going to impact the future.


We are continuously expanding our portfolio of NGS-based Genetic Tests and bioinformatics pipelines. Our bioinformatics development teams work on highly tested and stable analysis pipelines that are rolled out at a large scale into the clinical routine. Due to the high impact each analysis can have on a patients life, we need to understand and test every detail of an analysis in order to make sure the right decision is made for the benefit of the patient. In this setting, we are looking for highly motivated individuals, who want to help us improve Genetic Testing for millions of people.


What you will do:

  • Architect and implement high throughput analysis pipelines, with a strong focus on NGS data

  • Write highly stable, tested and documented code for a medical application

  • Optimize and benchmark cloud-based solutions for SaaS products

  • Closely collaborate with other Bioinformaticians, DevOps and our Software Engineers

  • Actively contribute to and maintain a fast evolving codebase

  • Implement and promote best practices for software engineering


What you will need:

  • Experience with analysis pipeline design, with a strong preference for NGS data (Illumina or PacBio sequencing)

  • Professional development experience with Python

  • Working knowledge of Version control systems (e.g. github, GitLab, bitbucket)

  • Experience with workflow management technologies (e.g. nextflow, airflow) and/or HPC management systems (e.g. SLURM, SGE)

  • Solid understanding of the technical challenges of storing and handling large quantities of biological Data

  • Communicative and proactive attitude - you can work as part of a team in a fast-paced environment


A big plus is: 

  • Experience with CI/CD

  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes

  • Experience with cloud computing services (e.g. AWS or MS Azure)

  • Familiarity with Molecular Biology or Medical Applications of NGS

  • Proficiency in Linux and bash

  • Familiarity with agile software development


We offer:

  • An interdisciplinary and dedicated team

  • Exciting challenges in a fast-evolving domain

  • Chance to work on cutting-edge technologies

  • Opportunity to make an impact - we work very close to patients and our results directly affect their health

  • A flexible work schedule

The Platomics office is very conveniently located close to Praterstern, easily reachable via U1, U2, S-Bahn and ÖBB.

You’ll earn a salary starting at a minimum of EUR 36.890 per year - as a career entry level (according to IT-KV). Willingness for over-payment is given for candidates with proper experience and/or qualifications.
