Full Stack Software Engineer (JS, Angular2, ES6)

Apply your engineering skills to help us cure diseases. We are looking for a superb full-stack software engineer to join our product development team. You will be involved in the design and development of our web-based tools, which are used by our scientists to discover new medicines.

You will be an excellent senior software engineer, ideally with full-stack experience or very strong skills in either Javascript or Java, with a keen interest in extending your skill set across a wider spectrum of technology, which currently includes:

Frontend: Angularjs,(v1,v2), ES6, OO Javascript, Typescript, Flux, Sass, Cytoscape.js

Backend: Java 8, Spring Framework, Microservices, Neo4j, Elasticsearch, MongoDB, AWS and related technologies.

 You will be joining our Agile development teams.  You will advocate high-quality engineering and best-practice in production software as well as rapid prototypes. You must be a strong communicator who can explain what is required to build and deliver great software products. You will be keen to work with the rest of the team and develop collaboratively.

You will promote test-driven-development and other Agile best-practices for ensuring the software is resilient enough for our scientists to rely upon.

 In this role, it is important to be able to iterate rapidly based on user feedback, experiment with different ideas, without losing sight of engineering quality. You’ll be willing to share your opinion on technical direction, and contribute to the mix of ideas.

 The team works closely with our in-house biologists and chemists who use our product suite on a daily basis. It is useful (but by no means a requirement) if you have some understanding of the Biomedical domain. There are opportunities to learn more within the role, through regular in-house presentations and other training.

 You may also have a knack for related skills, including user experience, data visualization, algorithm design, machine learning and there may be opportunities to grow these other skills as part of your role if you so wish.

Our Requirements

The Company – Benevolent.AI

This is a great opportunity to get involved at a startup with strong financial backing and global ambitions.

Our office, a converted leather factory between Euston and St Pancras, is relaxed and unique, with a friendly atmosphere and a diverse team of clever people from around the world. The company offers a growing benefits package that includes pension, health insurance, a cycle-to-work scheme, and daily fresh fruit. We care about what we do, but we generally do not work long hours.

Our mission is to increase the efficiency and success of the R&D process. Society has created huge quantities of complex information and data but the ability to use this to create knowledge for drug discovery and development is still at its infancy. However, the tools and technologies to explore this data are rapidly developing and Benevolent.AI’s aim is to use deep judgement and applied AI combined with pharmaceutical expertise to accelerate the process by which new medicines are discovered and developed.
