Senior Software Developer


At AbCellera, we’re solving tough problems and creating innovative solutions from the ground up. Our developers are designing cutting-edge software that revolutionizes how scientists explore antibodies and the scale at which they can do this. It’s life-changing research and you could be a part of it. We’re the first in our field to be providing tools like these, which means you’ll be solving new problems every day. You will be helping us develop unique software products that make us leaders in the tech industry. And, most importantly, your work will contribute to bringing better therapeutics to patients.

We’re a diverse team of 150+ people based in the heart of beautiful Vancouver and we’re growing quickly! We were recently featured on Fast Company’s 2020 list of Most Innovative Companies so this is an exciting time to join us as we continue to put the “tech” in “biotech”! 

The role:

We need someone like you to help create software tools that allow our scientists to capture, store, and draw insights from complex biological data. If you don’t have a biology background - fear not - we’ll get you up to speed. This is a greenfield project so creativity and fresh ideas aren’t just encouraged - they’re required!  On any given day you might:

  • Develop new API endpoints

  • Write front end code for UIs that allow non-technical users to intuitively interact with data

  • Coordinate changes to the database schema

  • Collaborate with (non-technical) end users to produce a winning design

  • Test what you’ve implemented - ideally with automated tests!

Our current tech stack:

  • Backend powered by Django (3.1) on Python 3.7

  • HTML5 with Bootstrap 4 (we’re transitioning to modern frontend framework shortly)

  • PostgreSQL database

  • Docker

What we’re looking for:

  • At least 5 years’ experience delivering high quality software 

  • Comprehensive experience with Python

  • Experience with a modern web framework (Frontend and Backend)

  • Experience with relational databases and ORMs

  • Proficient with version control (we use git)

  • Experience practising good programming hygiene (delivering clean, reusable, documented, and tested code that follows best practices)

  • Confidence communicating in English

  • A team player with a can-do attitude who’ll ensure everyone’s success

Bonus points if you have:

  • Experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS)

  • A background in biology, immunology or pharmaceutical science

  • A great personality and a good sense of humour

Perks of the job:

  • An attractive compensation package, including health and lifestyle benefits

  • A minimum of 3 weeks’ vacation

  • Opportunities for personal and professional development 

  • And of course, the opportunity to make a real difference, working on challenging problems that matter

To Apply:
