Full Stack
As a software engineer, you'll help us build the Ganymede product, architect our technical strategy, and leave your mark on the company, as well as the biotech industry and broader sciences. You'll wear many hats:
  • Span the stack, from frontend, backend, cloud infra, data infra, to maybe some direct work with biotech hardware too! (No experience needed in hardware or frontend - just a willingness to learn what it takes in a rapidly evolving startup environment)
  • Day-to-day work will be a combination of scrappy implementation to maintain our pace, and careful strategic planning to avoid and reduce tech debt in the future.
  • You'll play an important role with our founding customers as we prioritize our roadmap and scope out the exact details of our releases. In a technical environment like Ganymede, engineering and product are inseparable
  • You'll also be a key determinant of our culture, and will help us grow and set norms for the business as we scale
Our Principles
  • Improving lives through better medicine: we’re intensely mission-focused, and are building a highly scalable business to make an impact on society.
  • Kindness: we come from a future where all human beings are treated with dignity, inclusivity, and active empathy, so we apply that to ourselves first in how we hire and treat each other.
  • Transparency: we are one team, and hold that openness is foundational to ensuring fairness, and that our actions tie to our shared mission.
  • Accountability: we believe that trust is the basis for building anything substantial, and stems from our being accountable to ourselves and each other.


What we look for:
  • 5+ years of software engineering experience, including leadership of teams or projects from the initial design stages through completion
  • Experience with building applications in React and Typescript or Javascript
  • Experience developing thoughtfully designed, highly performant systems in backend web technologies such as Flask or Node
  • Ability and desire to build from the ground up - we're a small team of a handful of engineers!
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills in both written and verbal forms, as well as via clear, cleanly written code
  • Desire to improve software infrastructure for scientists advancing the health and welfare of people
Pluses (but not required by any means!):
  • Experience in a lab or working with scientific instrumentation, lab automation, or robotics in a software context
  • Experience developing pipelines on workflow management software such as Airflow
  • Contributions to open source packages
  • Experience working within a quality, compliance, or GxP framework


  • Compensation for this role will range from $160-190k annual base salary, depending on experience
  • Remote-first role and culture, with periodic reimbursed travel for the team to meet together
  • Significant equity as an early employee
  • Unlimited PTO & sick days
  • Excellent health benefits (Medical, Dental & Vision), life, and disability insurance
  • Family leave (Maternity, Paternity, Medical, Caregiver)
  • Home office and fitness stipends
