As a Senior 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. You will drive all aspects of software quality, particularly reliability, efficiency, utility and maintainability for both new and existing software.

Oxford Nanopore is developing a nanopore-based technology platform for direct electrical DNA analysis. The Company has recently raised significant funds to accelerate the development of this technology.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.

* Mentor other software developers and lead small projects
* Contribute to designs for both embedded systems and off-instrument analysis
* Build strong collaborations with the hardware engineering team
* Interface with internal and external customers to define project requirements
* Identify, evaluate and enable new technologies and capabilities

Required skills and background:

* 5 years of C++/STL/boost development experience
* At least a degree in computer sciences or related discipline
* Experience working with agile software development methodologies (SCRUM, TDD)
* Proven ability to quickly learn and adapt in a biotechnology environment
* Demonstrate a strong understanding of the software development life cycle
* 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
* Proven ability to work efficiently in a Linux/Windows environment
* Additional languages, particularly Python, Perl, HTML and XML
