Engineering at One Codex
Engineering team and processes

Although our team is currently small, every member of our organization contributes to our codebase. We tend to specialize a little in our most comfortable stack, but frequently engage with all parts of the code. Our engineering team operates on 2 week sprint cycles. Each sprint, we plan upcoming features, assign points based on complexity, and queue them in order of priority. Features are tackled as pairs when appropriate. We use Pull Requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews

Technical Challenges

A broad range of problem sets (everything from low-level algorithms and data structures for bioinformatics to our React frontend for visualizing genomics data). Working on technology that directly assists scientific researchers in a new and growing field, as well as clinicians and other applied practitioners translating that research.

Projects you might work on
  • You would get to work on an app that allows users to interact with cutting edge genomic research and compare genetic mutations.
