Full Stack Software Engineer with passion for UX/UI

What’s our vision?

BenevolentAI, founded in 2013, is an advanced technology company focused on accelerating the journey from data to medicines. It is the world’s only technology company with end-to-end capability from early discovery to late stage clinical development.

As an experienced Full Stack Software Engineer, you are going to work on an exciting greenfield project: a web based platform for surfacing the power of our AI models and state of the art data analysis methods for scientists. Our goal is to bring together world-class Scientists and Machine Learning Researchers to accelerate the discovery of therapeutic treatments for human diseases. This is an ideal role if you are passionate about any of the following domains: the Biomedical/ Medicinal Chemistry, user experience, data visualisation and machine learning, and if you would be excited by the opportunity to grow your skills in these areas.

We offer a great opportunity to explore and experiment with the state of the art tech stack and product to bring it to another level. You will also have the freedom to learn more within the role through regular in-house presentations and other training and develop your career in a highly challenging, but rewarding role.

What’s your mission?

  • Work closely in an experienced cross-functional team to help architect, iterate and, deliver an elegant platform for scientists to explore and delve into our AI driven system.

  • Technically, the team will be responsible for everything from implementing great design to the deployment and operational running of tools. Ideally you will be able to turn your hand to as much as possible and be flexible / comfortable to move between tech stacks when needed.

  • Collaborate with Biologists, Data scientists, AI researchers, and Chemists. We are all passionate about maintaining a consistent user experience across our products and value a willingness to be actively involved in other non technical processes such as user and UX research.

  • Iterate rapidly based on user feedback and experiment with different ideas, without losing sight of engineering quality.

  • Be pragmatic and flexible - adapting your approach to work on hackathons, MVPs and long lived products.

  • Be willing to share and champion your opinion on technical direction, and contribute to the mix of ideas.

  • Mentor, and be mentored by, other members of the team. Partake in and facilitate workshops, retros and other project sessions.

What do you need to succeed?

  • Extensive experience in full stack web application development.

  • Expertise in a range of technologies. The willingness to be flexible and humble matters more to us than evangelism over set technologies, however a robust knowledge of one or more of the following at each layer is needed:

    • JAVA 8+, Python, nodejs, Typescript, Javascript

    • Graph Databases, GraphQL, SQL

    • Angular, Vue or React

    • Material design or other design systems and HTML/SCSS

    • Kubernetes, Docker, Microservices architectures

  • Genuine passion for elegant UI/UX solutions.

  • A knowledge of automated and manual testing approaches.

  • Experience of Agile scrum, fast iterative environments, and version control.

  • You must be a strong communicator who can explain what is required to build and deliver great software products, as well as a great team player willing to listen to other colleagues concerns and freely raise your own.
