Scale Biosciences, Inc. (“ScaleBio”) is an early-stage life sciences technology and tools company developing advanced single-cell analysis solutions based upon the Company's patented split-pool barcoding and combinatorial indexing technology, to enable scalable, easy-to-adopt, extensible, cost-effective single-cell experiments so make single-cell sequencing across a broad range of systems, sample types and applications accessible to the larger research community.

Our founding team are the key inventors of split-pool barcoding and combinatorial indexing methods and share a common mission develop, democratize and make accessible this important technology for the broader research community to support broad range of applications including Epigenomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics, and Multi-omics. We have a strong Board, Advisors, and Management Team with a collective proven track record in building successful life sciences tools companies and a growing passionate, multi-disciplinary, diverse team of scientists, engineers, bioinformaticians and software developers.
We have a shared mission, patented and demonstrated technology, long term investment commitments and R&D facilities in San Diego and Bay Area, CA. We are seeking people that have a passion for developing technologies and tools that benefit the broader researcher community in the discovery of human biology, have a strong interest in single-cell sequencing as a disruptive and enabling technology and see the potential for our patented split-pool barcoding and combinatorial indexing methods.

As a Senior Bioinformatics Scientist, you will be a technical expert in single cell data analysis within a multidisciplinary team. We are looking for someone with experience leading projects and developing new methods who is excited to take a new technology all the way to a suite of products; from analysis of early internal prototypes to external software that can scale to unprecedented numbers of samples and cells.

    • Develop algorithms, models, and visualizations for huge multi-model single-cell datasets.
    • Engage with external collaborators on the validation of new products and novel applications for very high-throughput single-cell technologies.
    • Identify creative solutions to problems and actively participate in improving methods from the lab, through analysis to the final application.
    • Present projects and results to the team, customers, and the wider scientific community.

About You:

    • Ph.D. in computational biology, computer science, or related discipline; or a Master's with 4+ years professional experience with genomic technology.
    • Experience with single-cell sequencing technology and analysis methods. 
    • Experience analyzing complex sequencing datasets, including gene expression or epigenetics.
    • A track record of designing and implementing novel algorithms and analysis workflows.
    • Experience developing software, both in scripting and compiled languages. 
    • Background in statistical and machine-learning methods for large datasets.
    • Demonstrated ability to become an expert in new fields and work with interdisciplinary teams.
    • Excellent verbal/written communication and interpersonal skills, with scientists and nonscientists.

Nice to have:

    • Experience with professional software development methods.
    • Experience working with cloud computing environments.
    • Experience developing novel sequencing-based technologies in an interdisciplinary team.
