Job Description

Synthego is transforming scientists into designers with the first fully automated molecular biology lab. Lab automation is no cakewalk, though. Any given order moves through dozens of instruments, and our factory can manage throughput in the thousands. All these machines and samples generate a lot of data that we can learn from. Synthego is looking for a Data Scientist to join our core software team to help extract insights from our data sources for key stakeholders, including scientists, engineers, quality control, and executives.

Inside our ever-evolving laboratory, we are developing and bringing in new instruments, innovating new products, and pushing our existing capabilities to the limit. Data driven decision making is critical to ensure we are always heading in the right direction while executing Synthego's philosophy of rapid prototyping and innovation.

What You'll Do

* Analyze and summarize the effect of different interventions (e.g., changes to algorithms, experiments, or process changes) on our manufacturing process
* Perform exploratory analysis of process and product data including process timing or manufacturing cost
* Build Tableau visualizations and dashboards to monitor factory metrics
* Collaborate with cross functional, interdisciplinary teams to enable data-driven decision making on our products and factory

About You

* PhD or MS +4 years in a quantitative field (science, engineering, economics, etc.)
* Proficiency with the standard Python library, numpy, scipy, and pandas and a desire to learn more and improve your programming game
* Experience creating dashboards and visualizations in Tableau or similar software
* Familiarity with using AWS, APIs, SQL databases, and NoSQL databases
* Strong desire to work in a fast-paced, collaborative start-up environment
* You are meticulous in communicating your insights through data visualizations, reports, and presentations to audiences of varied technical backgrounds
* You can work independently but consider yourself to be a team player

Nice to Haves

* Background in Biology, Chemistry, or Manufacturing
* Experience with data from instrument design / development
* Previous experience in the Biotech domain

Company Benefits & Perks

* Competitive salary
* Generous equity at an early stage company
* Robust medical, dental and vision benefits
* 401k Plan
* 4x daily Shuttle bus to & from San Francisco (more locations to come)
* Fully stocked kitchen and snacks
* Free catered lunches and dinners
