Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Zymergen is a technology-driven company applying radical new methods to design and improve microbes by rewriting their DNA. This capability allows us to generate novel chemicals, advanced materials, and pharmaceuticals far faster and at lower costs than competing technology. Our approach combines biology, robotic automation, and proprietary computational and analytic methods to industrialize what is otherwise a slow, risky process.
A key element of our success is our ability to apply the latest in software tools, Big Data technology, and machine learning techniques to challenges in chemistry and manufacturing. Zymergen’s technology team plays a critical role in distinguishing our products and systems from those developed by our competitors.
Working at Zymergen offers engineers exposure to a field that makes a difference in the lives of millions of people: low-cost, scalable chemical manufacturing touches everything from how airplanes are built to the frontiers of life-saving medicines. In addition to working at a fast-growing startup and a competitive salary package, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are building a future for our world that was the realm of science fiction just ten years ago.
We create custom tools to design, test, and analyze microbial DNA changes at scales that dwarf traditional approaches. This involves advanced custom tooling for tracking and orchestrating workflows, automated collection of a wide variety of experiment metrics, tools for modeling DNA changes at scale, data analysis pipelines, and more.
As Senior DevOps Engineer (Senior SRE), you will be responsible for the overall architecture, and a large chunk of the implementation, of our approach to utilizing and managing cloud resources, and the tools and processes related to developing, building, testing, and releasing software. We are looking for someone with a pragmatic approach to technology choices, excellent communication skills, and a demonstrated ability to leave things better than they were when they got there.
A background in genomics, biology, chemistry, or related fields is not required for this position.
Our facility is located in the San Francisco bay area.
