Role Description

Freenome is looking for an experienced Infrastructure / DevOps Engineer to help build a cloud-native machine learning platform for the world’s largest multi-analyte cancer genomics dataset.

As an engineering-forward biotech company, we apply modern engineering practices to build reliable, maintainable, scalable, and secure production systems for our clinical lab and Computational and Molecular Research Scientists.

Our infrastructure team is a small group where you will help set the culture and build the systems that allow us to move fast without breaking things. This is an opportunity to do meaningful engineering work that will directly save lives.

We value: Rapid iteration and tight feedback loops Continual improvement rather than disruption Technical simplicity and elegance A focus on the larger goals Mutual respect and blameless postmortems A culture of diversity and inclusion

Responsibilities include: Improving the reliability and scalability of our platform for genomic research in concert with the Software Engineers and Computational Scientists who depend on it daily Planning for significant growth and scaling challenges as we transition from research to product development Lending your expertise to design and code reviews Anticipating technical scaling limits before we reach them Continually improving our security posture Reinforcing good development practices across the entire organization

What We're Looking For: 5+ years of experience with production infrastructure, automation, and monitoring B.S. or M.S. in computer science or a related technical field, or comparable experience Experience in analyzing and troubleshooting distributed systems Software design and development expertise, especially in Python Practical knowledge of Linux internals A systematic problem-solving approach, coupled with effective communication skills and a sense of ownership and drive

About Freenome

At Freenome, we’re building a multi-omics platform that ingests clinical-grade, high-dimensional, biological data for early cancer detection. We are guiding the bleeding edge of scientific research; no technology has ever been created to support this level of innovation.

We’re a diverse group of Engineers building tools and services which enable our Computational, Molecular, and ML Scientists to turn great research into even better products. We will create actionable insights for health systems and will guide change for the way doctors think about early detection of colon cancer. As our technology scales, we will incorporate the detection of other diseases into Freenome’s product.

Company Culture

Freenomers are technical and creative, visionary and grounded, empathetic and passionate. We build teams around divergent expertise, which allows us to solve problems and uncover opportunities in unique ways. Freenomers are some of the most talented experts in their fields, coming together to advance healthcare one breakthrough at a time.
