Job Description & Responsibilities
This is where you come in, the web application is in great shape but we need to answer more business questions. We want to provide data and tools to our finance and business analysts based on events from the application. The first big project would be maintaining an ETL pipeline for loading data into AWS S3 and supporting our internal customers with Tableau.
You would be collaborating with experienced application owners who know the datas ins and outs, you would not be learning the system in a vacuum. That won't be the end of it, we'd also like to support more developer friendly tools like Jupyter.
You'd also be supporting the Kubernetes cluster, helping to track system health, improving our CI/CD system, internal metrics and logging, performing cluster upgrades, and doing a variety of security ops. If you like Rust, this also a great job for you.
We're ready to train the right applicant for any of the missing skills. If you've got a passion for any part of this job and you're receptive to training on other parts, apply!

Often referred to as the ’Amazon for medical research’, Scientist.com (formerly Assay Depot) has pioneered a new approach for research procurement. By simplifying the externalization of complex experiments, we currently enable pharmaceutical, biotech, and academic researchers to ”outsource everything but the genius”. This dramatically simplifies drug research, reduces costs, and expands access to the latest cutting-edge tools and innovative technologies. We are the current industry leader, having multi-year partnerships with 13 of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and the US National Institutes of Health.
We are seeking talented, creative, and hard-working individuals who want to transform how research is done and help speed the discovery of new cures for cancer, Alzheimer’s, and thousands of other common and rare diseases.
