Role Description

Luminostics is a San Jose-based Y Combinator and Khosla Ventures-backed startup building a smartphone-based platform for rapid infectious disease testing using nanotechnology that interfaces with a phone's optics. We are currently putting various projects on hold to rapidly develop, launch, and scale products for rapid COVID-19 testing.

We are looking for a software developer who can take ownership of internal software systems and develop cloud-based services to support day-to-day operations at Luminostics. Our growing team of researchers is reliant on these systems to facilitate the development, validation, and production of our rapid diagnostic test kits. As we bring products to market, we will also require external-facing services to gather data from clinical research sites and eventually end users.

Responsibilities may include: - Building internal web applications to help researchers gain insight into data and improve operational efficiency - Migrating a Jupyter-based data science environment to a scalable cloud deployment - Developing services to synchronize on-premise and cloud based data stores - Developing and maintaining secure endpoints to gather data from clinical research sites - Working closely with end users to improve software in support of day-to-day research and operations

Desired Skills - Industry experience developing, shipping, and supporting code (2+ years) - Strong Python language skills - Familiarity with Python data science ecosystem (NumPy, Pandas, matplotlib etc.) - Backend web development experience - Cloud computing expertise (at least one of AWS, GCP, Azure) - Docker/Kubernetes, Linux administration experience desired - Familiarity with SQL databases, PostgreSQL administration
