Structura Biotechnology is a Toronto-based scientific software company. We build CryoSPARC, the industry-leading software platform for analyzing and processing cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) data. Cryo-EM is a recent Nobel Prize-winning technology that sheds light into previously uncharted areas of biology. Using our products, scientists at pharmaceutical companies, biotechs and academic research labs are making breakthroughs in life science and drug discovery projects that were previously impossible. Just a few examples of the hundreds of new discoveries made using our products: 3D structure of the insulin receptor, critical in understanding diabetes; first-ever 3D structure of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein in 2020, which was subsequently used for COVID vaccine development efforts; first structures of LRRK2 with possible drug candidates attached, a protein heavily implicated in Parkinson's disease.
CryoSPARC is a cutting edge HPC application that analyzes terabytes of data per day for each user, tracking millions of individual protein molecules per dataset, and supports interactivity, real-time processing and 3D visualization. CryoSPARC Live, our real-time processing software engine, can process data faster than microscopes can acquire images and has become a key enabler for scientists by reducing the time it takes to solve a 3D cryo-EM structure. We recently announced a partnership with Thermo Fisher Scientific to deliver a version of CryoSPARC Live with their cryo-EM microscopes.
Our company is growing through strong sales and global adoption of our products. Our team includes world-class engineers, computational researchers, and cryo-EM scientists. We have established ourselves at the forefront of cryo-EM technology and are well known in the field. What’s next for us? We want to keep leveraging our expertise and leadership in cryo-EM and scientific software development to meet the newest frontiers in cryo-EM, such as enhanced 3D visualization, real-time optimization of data collection, automation and workflows specific to drug discovery, and to continue designing excellent algorithms and software that scientists truly enjoy using. Scaling our software platform to support the next frontiers is a major area of focus within the team.
We are looking for a Full Stack Developer to join our team to help advance these goals. You are someone who wants to get close to the problem, understand the workflows cryo-EM users want to achieve, and creatively design and build UI features to power those workflows. You are excited to work on a leading scientific software product with growing product scope and room to take initiative and lead projects.
We are a small, energetic and highly focused team that is dedicated to helping make cryo-EM a ubiquitous and accessible technology that can power new advances in biology and medicine. We take pride in our work and our strong team culture of respect, continuous learning and tenacity. If you are looking for a mission-driven, high-impact role alongside an excellent team, you will fit right in.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Full Stack Developer” and provide us with your CV and a few paragraphs explaining why you would be the right fit for this position. You must be legally able to work in Canada
