Genexa AG -- Zürich in Switzerland - Other




IT / Internet
other, Part time

Offering Equity


Genexa is a recently founded service provider for genomic data analysis (a.k.a. bioinformatics). We help our customers to analyse their genomics data -- no matter whether a full analysis, some initial consulting or troubleshooting is required.

We are looking for a Data Engineer (or Data Analyst/Bioinformatician with experience in Data Engineering) to join the team.

You will be designing and implementing the compute environment for new genomics solutions which initially run in the cloud and later potentially on-premises. Depending on your skills and your curiosity, you might dive into some bioinformatics.

We can not tell you much about the expected workload and where it exactly goes (yet). But together we will figure this out! So if you are willing to work for a startup with all its fanciness and shakiness please apply!

Tech. requirements:

  • Experience in Apache Spark/Hadoop (HDFS, YARN, ...)
  • Experience in (preferably) Google Cloud Platform or AWS/Azure
  • Fluent in Python (preferred) or Scala
  • Do we even have to mention GNU/Linux? :)
  • Familiar with Docker & git
  • You are able to tell us what is missing in the list above!
Other skills:
  • Not afraid of handling and processing large amounts of data on a distributed system
  • Fluent English (oral/written)
  • Swiss/EU citizenship
We offer:
  • Insights into genomics/bioinformatics from a data analysis perspective
  • Flexible working hours and flexible workplace
