Web developer
Help us understand and tackle cancer by developing a collaboration tool for researchers in top research institutions and pharma companies.
Who are we?

Turbine is the first startup fighting cancer by simulating cancer cells & designing drugs against them with an AI.

We're a young team of doctors, developers and bioinformaticians based in Budapest, working with top pharma companies and research institutes across the globe.
Why should you join us?

tackle an enormous, global challenge
- We are building a community of researchers who will use Turbine to understand cancer and find new ways to beat it. Your job will be to build the platform we use to crowdsource development of our Simulated Cell model where researchers can set up and run thousands of simulated experiments.
build deep tech to make a better world
- We created Turbine after 10+ years of research to do good and save lives. We're working to bring better drugs to patients, faster.
grow both professionally & personally
- Over a decade of building teams and organizations, we've learned the best way to guarantee results is letting you make your own fortune. We won't spoon feed you solutions, but trust you to surprise us with a way of doing things we never could have imagined.
work with smart people from all walks of life
- Your days will be spent in the company of doctors, bioinformaticians, biophysicists - we even have our own science philosophist. We encourage you to think beyond your own role - if you have anything to add. Similarly, your best solutions may come from sharing thoughts with a colleague from another team.
About the role

We built a virtual expert-curated Simulated Cell that can model mechanism of action of different drugs.

There is a lot of work involved in converting raw bioinformatics data into virtual Simulated Cells. Some of this process is automatic, some requires human supervision. This position would involve designing and maintaining a system with a user-friendly interface for connecting both human and computer input to a shared database, with performance and scaling in mind. If you've previously worked with bioinformatics data (or just large datasets), it's a plus, but if not, you'll have the opportunity to pick up exciting new knowledge about how cells work just by working with our team of doctors and bioinformaticians.

What will your role be?
→ developing a system for collaborative editing of bioinformatics data
→ creating a user-friendly interface accessible for biologists
Who are we looking for?

Someone having previous experience in some aspects of
our platform technology stack:
→ Python 3.6 asyncio / Flask-based back-end
→ React-based front-end / JavaScript (ES6+)

Other skills:
→ has an eye for writing performant code
→ previous database (esp. MongoDB) experience is a big plus
→ a knack for UX is a plus
→ likes working in a team

It's OK if you're not fluent in all of these languages, what matters is that you'd be willing to learn on the job.

Please note that we are based in Budapest and can only consider candidates with a valid EU work permit.
We would love you to join Team Turbine.
