Besides key, user-facing product areas, we’re striving to build a platform of extensible, reusable data input components for use internally, across Benchling.
Own large-scale projects end-to-end, from ideation with cross-functional partners, through to rollout to end-users. Build across our stack, from designing and implementing backend models & APIs to crafting rich frontend components and architecture. Collaborate closely with product managers, designers, marketing, and other teams to build the best product possible for our users. Build entirely net-new products, while also investing in taking existing products to feature completeness.
