Myriad Genetic's Automation Team is a multidisciplinary group of engineers with backgrounds in software, mechanical, electrical, controls and service engineering as well as molecular biologists and laboratory automation veterans. As a Software Engineer, Automation & Robotics within Counsyl’s automation team you will play a leading role in the scale-up of our automated laboratory to support the simultaneous processing of thousands of samples across multiple workflows. The focus of your work will be on the integration of the most advanced industrial automation and lab automation equipment with our in-house laboratory event scheduler and information management systems. This work interacts with many other aspects of Counsyl’s automation technology, from the design of custom instruments to helping scientists automate new biological assays.
The vast majority of our operations are powered by our own custom-built infrastructure on a Python/Django/Postgres stack, from ordering to lab processing to billing. We're building new tools, new workflows, and new infrastructure to solve the challenging problems of a technology startup involved with not just bits, but also interconnected physical components like lab robotics and patient samples.
Solving these problems requires great software engineers to help us scale up genomics to billions of users.
