Software Engineer, Visualization

DNA sequencing technology has advanced rapidly in recent years, but our understanding of the code that powers our lives is still evolving, with huge advances yet to be made. 10x Genomics creates products that allow scientists to study the genome in new and more precise ways, to discover the mechanisms behind cancer, the immune system, and our many different cells.  Software is key to making these discoveries, and good visualization software is key to accelerating these discoveries.

We want computer scientists and engineers who excel at creating elegant, practical solutions to new and novel problems.  Our ideal candidate will be part engineer, part product manager, as you will often be creating visualization tools for brand-new scientific data types.  Your users will be the experts in their scientific fields, and your job will be to help them make important discoveries, faster.

If you are the kind of person who is an avid fan of technology in all fields, not just your own, and want to apply your talent alongside a diverse team of experts every day, join us at 10x Genomics.
