Full Stack Software Engineer

We are looking for a full-time Full Stack Software Engineer

Are you passionate about actively helping in implementing new personalised cancer treatments, alongside accomplished biotech experts? Are you looking for an ambitious new project to test and grow your knowledge?

Who are we?
myNEO is a Belgian biotech company in Ghent, focused on identifying, exploring, and validating personalised cancer treatments based on genomic analysis of sequencing data. We’ve developed a bioinformatics platform that is continuously being optimised based on results from our own experiments as well as from published research studies in the field of immune oncology. Our proprietary state-of-the-art algorithms, incorporated in the platform, are open for licensing by biotech and pharma companies to improve the efficacy & applicability of the immunotherapies they are developing. We take great pride in the fact that our approach for analysis of and reporting on a cancer patient’s sequencing data is compatible with clinical timelines and focused on providing clinical value to the patient.

The hands-on approach of a young start-up company is omnipresent, and every employee is directly involved in substantial decision making. Therefore, each employee is able to grow side-by-side with the company and gains responsibilities from day 1. Working remotely for a few days a week presents no issues as myNEO thinks highly of the well-being and work pleasure of its employees. A work hard/play hard balance is endorsed and so flexibility is important on both ends. myNEO is a team of young people that work closely together in which open communication is encouraged and pleasant working relations are developed.

What does the job entail?

  • Familiar with SRE / Infrastructure-as-code way of working
  • Interest in cancer research and personalised therapeutics is highly recommended
  • Experience in data visualisation techniques & Machine Learning/Deep Learning is a plus
  • Experience with high-performance computing and performance optimisation is a plus
