Employer: Radix Labs Expires: 06/01/2020 Radix is an early stage startup building an optimizing compiler that takes biotech procedures and compiles them to instructions that can be executed in a physical biology lab. Well plates are our “memory” and our move instruction is telling a lab worker or pipetting robot to move a substance or physical object from one location to another. We build fundamental abstractions over biology labs including work-flow specification, optimized program compilation to varied back-end targets (real labs) and put it behind great UX. The current industry status quo has talented PhD Biologists spend 5 hours a day on hard to reproduce, unoptimized minutia that isn’t innovative. We hope to accelerate biotech innovation like early compilers did for computing by enabling lab protocols to seamlessly operate and be optimized across physical labs. We have funding from some pretty cool people (YCombinator, Firstminute Capital, MIT's The Engine, and Nikesh Arora) and have multiple pilots in academic research labs and commercial biotech corporations, and this number is growing. We’re looking for pragmatic individuals who appreciate well done code and want to make a big difference for our users—biologists and lab workers and biology as a discipline, and enable them to have good tooling that abstracts away menial work.We’re 100% a Scala shop.
