Engineering

Senior Front End Developer

The Company

BenevolentAI unites technology with human intelligence to re-engineer drug discovery and deliver life-changing medicines. We have developed the Benevolent Platform®, a drug discovery platform built on powerful data foundations with state of the art machine learning and AI technology. Our technology empowers scientists to decipher the vast and complex code underlying human biology, find new ways to treat disease and personalise medicines to patients. Benevolent has active in-house R&D drug programmes in disease areas such as neurodegeneration, immunology, oncology and inflammation and has research and commercial collaborations with leading pharmaceutical and research organisations. The company is headquartered in London with a research facility in Cambridge (UK) and a further office in New York.

Who we are

We are an eclectic bunch at Benevolent, united by our belief that innovative thinking and purposeful technology can truly change outcomes for the better. Our mission is to re-engineer drug discovery and deliver life-changing medicines for patients in need and we do this by applying AI, machine learning and other advanced technologies to reinvent the ways drugs are discovered and developed. We strive to bring together unique skills and perspectives across biology, chemistry, engineering, AI research, informatics, precision medicine and drug discovery.

The Role

We are looking for a Senior Front End software engineer willing to work on an exciting greenfield project: a web-based platform for surfacing the power of our AI models and state of the art data analysis methods for scientists. Our goal is to bring together world-class Scientists and Machine Learning Researchers to accelerate the discovery of therapeutic treatments for human diseases. This is an ideal role if you are passionate about the Biomedical/ Medicinal Chemistry domains, user experience, data visualisation and machine learning, and if you would be excited by the opportunity to grow your skills in these areas.

We offer a great opportunity to explore and experiment with the state of the art tech stack and product to bring it to another level. You will also have the freedom to learn more within the role through regular in-house presentations and other training and develop your career in a highly challenging, but rewarding role.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Responsible for driving the vision of the frontend architecture across multiple products
  • Work closely in an experienced and cross functional application team to help implement and deliver elegant solutions for a wide range of scientists.
  • Iterate rapidly based on user feedback and experiment with different ideas without losing sight of engineering quality.
  • Implement user interfaces using state of the art front end tools ideally with an interest in data visualisation too.
  • Collaborate with Biologists, Data scientists, AI/Machine Learning researchers, bio and cheminformaticians, and Chemists. We are all passionate about maintaining a consistent user experience across our products and value a willingness to be actively involved in other non-technical processes such as user and UX research.
  • Be pragmatic and flexible - adapting your approach to work on small prototypes, MVPs and long-lived products.
  • Be willing to share and champion your opinion on technical direction, and contribute to the mix of ideas.
  • Mentor, and be mentored by, other members of the team. Partake in and facilitate workshops, retros and other project sessions.

We are looking for someone with

  • 5+ years of commercial experience in front end web application development and with a genuine passion for elegant UI/UX solutions.
  • Strong attention to detail and a willingness to champion good design principles and translate them into code
  • The willingness to be flexible and a team player matter more to us than experience in set technologies, although experience using the following stack might be beneficial: Vue (or similar frameworks), Typescript, GraphQL, Webpack, Lerna, Jest, Cypress,
  • Knowledge of automated and manual testing approaches
  • Experience of Agile scrum, fast iterative environments, and version control.
  • You must be a strong communicator who can explain what is required to build and deliver great software products.

Together, we envision a world in which no disease goes untreated. If you are benevolent, curious, want to tackle real world problems and are willing to embrace new ideas, hit that ‘apply’ button and join us.
