About the role:

Syapse is seeking a Sr. Software Engineer to own the process of building scalable architecture, writing robust, encapsulated code, understanding the larger picture--these are all qualities Syapse engineers value when building a product to transform the practice of medicine. Today, with the help of Syapse, doctors are harnessing complex clinical and genomic data to improve and extend the lives of cancer patients. Syapse's reach includes some of the biggest names in cancer care, and we are making meaningful improvements in the lives of cancer patients.

The Application team sits at the nexus of the Syapse platform. We transform complex data into understandable APIs, coordinate with our powerful semantic data platform, and scale our systems to handle hundreds of thousands of patients and their medical data. We work in agile, cross-functional teams to deliver an industry-leading precision medicine data platform.

Some projects we work on:

Building efficient queries on a significant fraction of the cancer population to provide medical professionals guidance into proper treatments

Allow different healthcare systems to share patient data and unlock even greater insights

Translate complex, and sometimes messy, healthcare data into a standard form

Some things you'll be doing:

Deliver features through our Python / Django / Postgres stack

Scale out several orders of magnitude to handle both the vast quantities of data, and the increasing number of users

Develop internal tooling to improve reliability and efficiency

Define robust contracts between different areas of the platform

Bring projects from all the way from conceptualization to development to deployment

Some skills we're looking for:

Computer Science or closely related degree is required; advanced degree is a plus

Ten years of experience building sophisticated server-side platforms

Expert Python skills; Java skills also welcome

Comfort with standard web application issues

Building smart, understandable and versioned APIs

Unafraid to stretch outside the application into DevOps and the semantic store

Big data experience
