Automata is building a world-class company to disrupt the life science industry and empower scientists by making automation a reality for every lab.
We work with labs across the world to understand their specific workflows and needs, and develop personalised solutions that range from diagnostic, drug discovery to synthetic biology. This allows us to simplify common automation tasks, while also supporting more advanced paths for specialised workflows, in a fast, flexible, and cost-efficient way.
We are looking for a Principal Platform Engineer whose mission is to be an enabler for our application developers and hardware engineers to deliver value to our end users in a faster, more reliable and easier manner.
Why is this role important for Automata?
We're building a platform team to empower our software and hardware teams making automation a reality for every lab.
Without observability for our hardware, improved CI/CD for our software team and reliability of either, we're not going to earn the trust of our customers to chose Automata for their labs
We're using terraform and CI/CD already, so you won't start from scratch, but the data and observability aspect is a greenfield project we need your support with.
In this role you will be responsible for:
- Observability, data-lake implementation.
- CI/CD, helping improve DORA metrics.
- Evangelising and training of engineers to own delivery themselves.
- Increase the velocity of our product teams by improving internal tools for them.
What it takes:
- 4+ years experience with Terraform.
- 4+ years with AWS.
- 4+ years of experience as software engineer.
Nice to haves:
- Python, gRPC, Kafka, BigQuery,
- Experience building a team
What gets us excited?
We’re passionate about the future of Technology and Automation and our growing success is built upon like-minded individuals who share our passion.
Making an impact on helping scientists to automate their workflows, building a customizable but resilient platform with close proximity to hardware, including on-premise smart benches.
If this sounds like a good fit and have tick the right boxes, you will love having the opportunity to build something that immediately adds value.
