Developer – Frontend Engineer

Anocca is looking for someone passionate about developing performant UI components for handling large amounts of live biological and lab-related data. These UI components utilize the entire repertoire of modern web browser technologies. Examples of such already developed components include DNA and amino acid sequence editors, data tables, calendars, graphs, and digital representation of labware.

Working at Anocca, you will focus on developing new components and screens. These are technology agnostic except for the use of TypeScript and React. You have the opportunity to build and own the architecture for the parts of the system you are responsible for.

The developer experience is fluid, with low build times and a focus on fast feedback and test-driven development. We develop babel and eslint plugins and code mods to automate and assist as much as possible in the development process.

We want to promote creativity, learning, and exploration of technologies and methodologies that can accelerate the development, and we encourage workshops and pair programming. The team is still small, and there are many opportunities to impact the end product of Anocca. There are also opportunities to be involved in biological research and software development across the tech stack

What we are looking for:

  • Excellent knowledge in TypeScript, React, and the JavaScript ecosystem
  • Knowledge of the browser APIs and CSS
  • Computer science fundamentals

Good to know or have experience in:

  • RxJS
  • Jest
  • GraphQL
  • Material UI
  • Basics in cell biology

Developer – Backend Engineer

Anocca is looking for someone passionate about developing performant backend applications capable of handling large amounts of live biological and lab-related data.
