Vertex is a biotech company, committed to bringing transformative medicines to people with serious and life-threatening diseases. We are growing a Computational Biology group dedicted to Genetic Therapies, such as CRISPR-based therapeutic gene editing. One example therapy we have worked on is CTX001, a CRISPR-based gene editing treatment for Sickle Cell Disease and Beta-Thalassemia, which is currently in clinical trials: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/11/19/7805102...
We are currently looking for an excellent software engineer to develop and improve cutting-edge methods and software to answer scientific questions and bring these genetic therapies to patients. Strong software engineering skills, with an understanding of how to design and implement production-quality code, are critical. While no medical, genomics or scientific background is required, a passion for playing a critical role in the development of transformative therapies is essential.
We offer competitive benefits and compensation, including salary, bonus, and equity. Our office is in the Seaport neighborhood of Boston. You would join a great work environment of motivated, smart, fun, and supportive people.
