Software Engineering

Software Engineers at Genedata work in agile, self-organizing development teams, each focusing on one of our market leading computational platforms. As members of highly motivated development teams, our software engineers are involved in sprint planning and presenting the sprint results in review meetings to internal stakeholders. As a quality-driven organization, we invest a great deal in automated testing and continuous integration support. Nevertheless, active participation in various testing processes is part of the job. Our highly talented software engineers work with a diverse group of colleagues, including scientists and business managers, so good communication skills are a must.

Expertise in software engineering and experience in agile software development projects are essential requirements for successful software engineers at Genedata. An in-depth understanding of enterprise systems, state-of-the-art software architectures, and efficient software implementation is highly beneficial. Ideally team members have experience working on major cross-functional projects and enjoy a strong team-oriented collaborative approach to software engineering.

Scientific Consulting

Our Scientific Consultants (also called Scientific Account Managers), who sometimes also take on the role of Project Managers, act as the interface between our software engineering departments and our customers. Working as a scientific consultant at Genedata is an interdisciplinary, multi-faceted, and highly interactive role, offering exciting opportunities to support, shape, and promote cutting-edge software systems. Our scientific consultants come from a variety of disciplines, but all of them enjoy solving complex problems for our customers. They are either experts in the analysis of complex experimental datasets or are keen to provide their expertise in streamlining and optimizing large and challenging data processes for our customers. Others take on responsibility for managing our strategic development projects in close collaboration with our customers.

Genedata’s Scientific Consultants need to have a profound understanding of the requirements of our customers as well as the solutions we provide to address those requirements.

Their responsibilities include producing marketing material that illustrates the value of our offerings, conducting marketing campaigns to create awareness for our products, and providing market analysis to support business and product development. Our marketing teams work with influencers, analysts, and the media to shape messages and draft press releases, and also use social media to connect with our rapidly growing customer base.  In addition, the marketing role includes providing support in lead generation and understanding marketing ROI. Finally, the organization and promotion of conferences, customer events, and webinars is also in scope of marketing.

For our marketing teams, we need skillful communicators, who understand the value of our solutions in a dynamic industry and at the same time know how to map our value propositions to the needs of our customers. We look for people who combine a good scientific and technical background with significant B2B marketing experience, ideally with a background in the enterprise software or life science industry.
