JMI Laboratories is looking to add a seasoned Ruby / Postgres / Rails Engineer to our growing software development team. Our business is to perform custom microbiology testing on bacteria and fungal samples obtained from around the world to help our clients measure the effectiveness of different antibacterial and antifungal drugs against a representative worldwide sampling.

We use a very lean and agile approach to developing web apps that allow our in-house team of 50+ microbiology specialists to efficiently schedule and record results of lab tests of tens of thousands of samples per year, as well as tools to help our scientific directors and external clients effectively analyze this information.

In business since 2000, we have millions of test results in our database and that number grows daily. We are retooling on Rails and Postgres to provide the next generation data collection and analysis tools that our organization and clients need and you will be getting in on the ground floor of this retooling for a proven, profitable, and growing business.

This is a position for someone who loves organizing, analyzing, and visualizing data and is willing to learn the nuances of operating a high volume microbiology lab so that we can provide the best tools to our staff and clients. The work we do is integral to the development of new antibacterial and antifungal drugs by our clients to improve the health of patients around the world. At the end of each day you will know that you are helping advance global public health.

You will have the opportunity to do both full stack web development as well as data migration and analysis. We are a small team of developers and thrive on everyone having a full view of what we’re doing and why.

Geographically distributed teams have pros and cons. We are looking for someone who thrives in a remote situation and knows the importance of frequent, efficient and effective communication whether that be via Chat, Hangout, or just well written code.

You’ll report directly to our CIO who is both an active code contributor as well as a first line liaison with our end users to help architect appropriate solutions. We are very open minded about adapting our processes to best fit our team as it grows and look forward to learning from your own experiences on prior development projects.

If you are both a great team player, a self-driven prolific coder, and want to contribute directly to help the world combat infectious diseases, you could be the perfect next addition to our team.

Please send cover letter and resume.
