One Codex is the leading bioinformatics platform for microbial genomics. Application areas include infectious disease diagnostics, microbiome research, food safety, and public health epidemiology.
We're an early-stage, profitable company out of the YC S14 class.
Our team frequently wins independent evaluations and contests due to the speed and quality of our algorithms — even against giants like Google.
We're creating a platform to accelerate the speed and accuracy of genomics data analysis. Come join us on the cutting edge!
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
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.
You would get to work on an app that allows users to interact with cutting edge genomic research and compare genetic mutations.
We value collaborative autonomy. As a small team, we always discuss our features and goals in the abstract, and trust in our coworkers to use their discretion to make implementation choices.
We eat together most days, and go out for a good meal together at lunch on Fridays to celebrate our progress and successes.
One Codex has an unlimited vacation policy.
One of us has a dog who sometimes stops by the office (she loves people and is hypoallergenic!).
We provide full medical and dental coverage.
We have a gorgeous office in the Mission with room to grow into.
