• Careers @ Envisagenics

  • Front End Engineer

    New York, NY

    Job Description
     
    We are looking for a highly creative and innovation-driven Front End Engineer to engage with Envisagenics engineers, bioinformatics analysts/scientists, and UX/UI designers to uncover how they do their work, what tools they use, how they understand their work, and how they currently solve their problems. We are looking for someone to develop high performance, responsive user interfaces for data visualization. The clean, intuitive, and beautiful user interface built, plays a critical role in the user experience -- allowing users to explore and visually manipulate large data sets to gain new insights and to share and tell stories with their data. We consider ourselves language and framework agnostic and strive to use the best tools for the job. We are looking for someone who is willing to rapidly pull apart and tease out the nuances of the data to understand the breadth, depth, extents, outliers, relationships, and other factors that reveal its structure as a whole.
     
    Responsibilities
    • Work closely with other team members to design and build new features, services, and tools for Envisagenics’ SpliceCore platform, and future platforms to be built.
    • Developing high performance, responsive user interfaces for data visualization
    • Develop core UI components of a fast, scalable, complex web application using HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, ReactJS/Redux, D3.js, WebGL, Processing, Three.js, Unity, Ruby on Rails or any data visualization framework that meets the user requirements.
    • Construct meaningful, interactive, responsive, frictionless, and succinct visualizations for a variety of subject matters and domains.
    • Immersion into the data itself to explore and shape the data.
     
    Requirements
    • Experience in engineering data visualizations and interactive experiences (demonstrated through a portfolio of projects).
    • Strong working knowledge of UI/UX practices including user research, requirements definition, design, prototyping, implementation and testing/evaluation.
    • You have worked in large JavaScript codebases and have kept the code modular and loosely coupled.
    • Experience building data visualizations using JavaScript libraries such as React/Redux/Angular, D3.js, Three.js, WebGL, Processing, PileUp.js, BioJS as well as Ruby on Rails, and have strong debugging abilities across all major browsers.
    • Understanding of current tools and trends in data visualization.
    • Conversational knowledge of ML, AI, and NLP methodologies and related Python libraries.
    • Understanding of software development life-cycle and experience developing an idea from conceptualization through implementation.
    • At least 1 year of full-stack web development experience using React, Node, and SQL.
    • Strong analytical skills and problem-solving abilities.
     
    Desired Skills
    • A working level understanding of data science principles including data wrangling, cleaning, collation and querying through various methods such as JS, Shell scripts or SQL.
    • Interest in expanding knowledge of biological sciences and desire to learn about genomics and transcriptomics.
