About Deepcell
Interested in helping to develop cutting edge technologies to empower cell biology and save lives? If so, we'd love to talk to you!

Our company is focused on developing a new  technology to improve biological research and, ultimately, health outcomes, across all of biology, enabling previously impossible applications. We deliver detailed breakdowns on a cell-by-cell basis, by using deep learning to classify cells based on their morphology. We've launched an internal product and are working to develop a commercially releasable version.  Come join Deepcell and make a difference!  We're a rapidly growing team of stellar innovators in biomedical engineering, artificial intelligence, and molecular biology.  Our technology has won multiple prestigious awards and is backed by top-tier venture capitalists in Silicon Valley including Andreessen Horowitz and Bow Capital. 

As an ML Cloud Infrastructure Technical Lead you will provide technical leadership for a growing team of cloud and machine learning engineers. The team is tasked with leading development of our data architecture, model training, deployment, and evaluation infrastructure. You will also take a leading role in development of model training services that provide optimized models and can be run by non-data scientists for use by both external and internal customers. You’ll build, maintain and improve data processing pipelines that process billions of data points and petabytes of data.

Additionally and specifically, guide the team in providing infrastructure services, starting with computational services: generate class predictions and embeddings by applying models to run IDs, morphometrics by applying morphometric models to run IDs, projections like UMAP, tSNE, PCA from embeddings, and extract clusters. Also help supply data services: cell data and metadata, obtain metadata about runs and datasets, model service, save and retrieve models and model metadata, image service to retrieve images from run IDs, label service to save and retrieve cell attributes (labels) by cell ID.

You’ll work with multiple interdisciplinary teams composed of data scientists, bioinformaticians, biologists and software engineers to help solve hard problems which improve biological research and, ultimately, health outcomes, across all of biology.
