Anocca is a rapidly growing mid-sized biotech company with digitalisation at its core. The expanding information and automation team is looking for new talent with a broad skill set capable of quickly adapting to new challenges. Applicants will be exposed to the forefront of biological and medical research, automation, and bioinformatics.

Currently, the digital platform consists of an extensive API built in Django and GraphQL with a React front-end.

Anocca is looking for someone passionate about developing performant UI components for handling large amounts of live biological and lab-related data. These UI components utilize the entire repertoire of modern web browser technologies. Examples of such already developed components include DNA and amino acid sequence editors, data tables, calendars, graphs, and digital representation of labware.

Working at Anocca, you will focus on developing new components and screens. These are technology agnostic except for the use of TypeScript and React. You have the opportunity to build and own the architecture for the parts of the system you are responsible for.

The developer experience is fluid, with low build times and a focus on fast feedback and test-driven development. We develop babel and eslint plugins and code mods to automate and assist as much as possible in the development process.

We want to promote creativity, learning, and exploration of technologies and methodologies that can accelerate the development, and we encourage workshops and pair programming. The team is still small, and there are many opportunities to impact the end product of Anocca. There are also opportunities to be involved in biological research and software development across the tech stack.

Please submit a CV and cover letter in English. Ideally, the applicant should be located near Stockholm, Sweden, although applicants in the EU will be considered. The position is in-house / onsite.
