Counsyl's products help people make life changing decisions - we’ve revolutionized the lab and created a one of a kind platform that gives people access to critical health information at key junctures in their lives - and it all uses Python!
The vast majority of our operations are powered by our own custom-built infrastructure on a Python/Django/Postgres stack, from ordering to lab processing to billing. We're building new tools, new workflows, and new infrastructure to solve the challenging problems of a technology startup involved with not just bits, but also interconnected physical components like lab robotics and patient samples.
Building the world's largest and most sophisticated Genome analysis system requires not only groundbreaking scientific discoveries and achievements but also cutting edge software that is built on scalable distributed data-driven principles. Don't be intimidated if you don't have a genomics background; solving these problems fundamentally requires software solutions. We're looking for the best and brightest software engineers — strong generalists with solid CS fundamentals and practical software engineering intuition — to help us scale up genomics to billions of users.
As a Software Engineer, you will build sophisticated cutting edge highly scalable software systems with a group of passionate mission-driven developers and scientists. You'll be working in a fast paced team on a number of diverse projects. If you're interested in working with modern web technologies, brilliant engineers and products that influence millions of people’s lives, this is the place for you.
Our available positions range from junior to senior level.
Counsyl is a health technology company that offers DNA screening for diseases that can impact men, women and their children. The Counsyl philosophy is simple: screen for diseases where advanced knowledge makes a difference in health outcomes, whether it’s changing a behavior, pursuing preventative measures, or simply preparing for what lies ahead.
The Counsyl team includes an accomplished group of problem-solvers — top engineers, scientists, and designers — who are taking the lead on building the modern clinical laboratory. Scientific rigor, custom robotics, and software are at the heart of every Counsyl product, resulting in better, faster and more affordable screens that are broadly accessible. Beyond the laboratory, Counsyl offers doctors and patients a technology platform for results delivery in real time, with on-demand access to board-certified genetic counselors.
Counsyl has screened more than 600,000 patients and served more than 6,000 health care professionals in its CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited and NYS CLEP-permitted clinical laboratory. The company has raised a total of $102 million and is privately backed by Pilot Growth Equity, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Founders Fund, Felicis Ventures, David Drummond, and other high profile investors.
