As a Software engineer, you will be a member of the Informatics Department, focused on developing analysis and control software and other peripherals associated with the DNA sequencing platform.

Oxford Nanopore is developing a nanopore-based technology platform for the direct electrical analysis of DNA. The multidisciplinary team at Oxford Nanopore includes specialists in molecular biology, electrophysiology, fluidics and materials engineering, electronic systems engineering, and informatics.

Our overall development approach is agile, and this is particularly evident in the informatics team where we practice agile software development methodologies. A combination of individual technical excellence and ability to work within a team is therefore essential for this role.

Job responsibilities include but are not limited to:

* Develop control and analysis software for our DNA sequencing platform
* Work closely with the informatics team developing new methods and algorithms
* Collaborate with the members of other hardware and software engineering teams (including the open source community)
* Interface with internal and external customers to define project requirements
* Contribute to designs for both embedded systems and off-instrument analysis
* Contribute to continuous integration and automated tests

Required skills and background:

* 2 years of C++/STL development experience
* At least a degree in computer sciences or related discipline
* Wiling to work with agile software development methodologies
* Ability to quickly learn and adapt in a biotechnology environment
* Understanding of the software development life cycle
* Experience with version control and automated build (make or IDE) systems
* Clear communication and strong interpersonal skills


* Team oriented, self-motivated and ability to cope with change
* Advanced degree or additional scientific training or related domain experience
* Ability to work efficiently in a Linux environment
* Exposure to open source tools (boost, cppunit)
* Additional languages, particularly Python, Perl, HTML or XML
* Experience with JIRA, Eclipse, LabView, MySql or SGE
* Experience with large-scale parallel and distributed applications

No bioinformatics or biotechnology background is required.
