Quality Engineering Manager - Belmont

Next-gen genomic sequencing (NGS) is a new frontier. The complexity and sheer size of the data in the life sciences will make astronomical data problems look modest. The Software Analytics team is not only changing science, but we change lives.

Our software teams are laying the groundwork for the future by developing powerful bioinformatics algorithms, data analysis tools, and software/systems infrastructures so researchers can develop better diagnostics faster. We are quickly moving into the clinical diagnostic decision realm.  The path to curing cancer lies in ones and zeros. 

Ask yourself: 
Do you want to work on another âœme tooâ app, ad-tech system, ecommerce platform? Or would you rather build products scientists and others in the life sciences will use to beat diseases like cancer? In our team, you will find Life Science meets Computer Science.  Our team builds highly scalable, reliable software and secure  systems.  Join us as a member of Roche Sequencing Solutions's (RSS) software team, where you will be responsible for developing automation test plans, and test infrastructure for Roche products. You will implement and test cutting-edge, distributed, scale-out next-generation sequencing data analysis software to ensure highest possible software quality for gene sequencing research and disease diagnostics, which is a pillar for the growing infrastructure needed to understand the human genome with speed, scale, and accuracy. Code to cure!

This is truly disruptive. Get off the sidelines and into the game. #Code2Cure
