About the Role

Freenome is looking for a DevOps Engineer to help us build reliable, maintainable, scalable, secure, and fault-tolerant infrastructure for our groundbreaking Discovery Platform to combat cancer and other age-related diseases. Our researchers and software engineers will depend on your delivery of a fail-safe, fast, and friendly developer toolset. Your work maintaining and improving the infrastructure will power our internal blood- and plasma-sample metadata databases and information transfer systems to ensure high uptime for our clinical lab and scientists. You'll also work on the High-Performance Computing clusters in the cloud that Computational Research uses to analyze the world's largest multi-analyte cancer genomics dataset. Since we're a small team, you'll also have an opportunity to design and build our security infrastructure and DevOps team as we grow.

* Architect, build, and deploy automated, tool-driven security management processes for monitoring our Google Cloud environment
* Maintain and improve our HPC platform for genomic research in concert with research scientists
* Build and deploy tools for automated and streamlined deployment and monitoring
* Work in tandem with software engineers and computational scientists to understand the product life cycle and team needs

What We're Looking For:

* 5+ years experience with DevOps, automation, and monitoring
* Coding experience, particularly in scripting languages like Python

About Freenome

Freenome is an AI genomics company on a mission to empower everyone with the tools they need to detect, treat, and ultimately prevent their diseases.

By applying advanced machine learning techniques to recent breakthroughs in genomic science, Freenome is developing simple blood tests to detect early-stage cancer and make treatments more effective. The company has raised $78 million from investors such as Andreessen Horowitz, Google Ventures, Polaris Partners, and Founders Fund.

Our Science

Freenome's technology enables it to look beyond the tumor to analyze the body's own response to cancer through the fragments of DNA and RNA that are released into the bloodstream when the cancer kills immune cells and other healthy cells. Along with cancer-associated proteins, these circulating, cell-free (cf) biomarkers provide a more dynamic picture of cancer's activity in the body, even at its earliest stages.

By decoding the billions of complex patterns in cell-free biomarkers associated with specific tumor types, Freenome's AI genomics platform is learning to detect cancer before symptoms occur, greatly improving survival rates. Other applications of our technology are providing insights into the safest, most effective treatments and revealing promising new targets for drug development.

Our Culture

Freenomers are technical and creative, visionary and grounded, empathetic and passionate. We build teams around divergent expertise, which allows us to solve problems and uncover opportunities in unique ways. Freenomers are some of the most talented experts in their fields. Together we advance healthcare one breakthrough at a time.

We value empathy, integrity and trust in one another. That means embracing other's perspectives, those of our coworkers and those of the patients and communities we serve. It means knowing when to push, and when to be quiet and listen. At Freenome we give each other the benefit of the doubt in the believe that we're all working as a team toward the same goals. We conduct ourselves with integrity, empowering others to grow in a collaborative environment.

Freenome explicitly prohibits any form of workplace harassment based on race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, genetic information, disability, or veteran status.

What does a successful person look like at Freenome?

Those who thrive at Freenome prioritize, manage, and execute their own goals in alignment with those of the company. They embrace our values of empathy, integrity, and trust, and hold themselves and their team accountable. They crave collaboration with brilliant minds from unfamiliar fields of study and believe that hiring and mentorship are fundamental to our success. Above all, they welcome and provide constructive feedback and criticism, trusting in the good intentions of others, and secure in the knowledge that embracing mistakes is the best way to learn and move on. For those who crave challenges, understudied problems, and the chance to see their work impact the lives of millions of people affected by cancer every year, there's no better place to be.
