The Archival Infrastructure and Technology team is looking for an enthusiastic software developer to work on our project to unify submissions to the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) archives. The Unified Submission Interface (USI) project is working to create a new programmatic and web-based submission interface for EMBL-EBI archives. This includes resources like BioStudies, BioSamples, the European Nucleotide Archive, the European Genome-Phenome Archive, the European Variation Archive, ArrayExpress, PRIDE and Metabolights.
USI has recently reached production status and this is a unique opportunity to join the team at a critical time while it is ramping up usage and connecting to more archives. Data submission is at the core of the EMBL-EBI mission and USI provides the consolidated way for our users to submit their data to the archives..
As a Software developer/bioinformatician for USI you will be responsible for the technical design, development, delivery, and maintenance of USI services and software. The team uses agile methods and requires the structured use of Jira and Git in a collaborative manner. The teams primarily writes programs in Java and the USI uses a microservices architecture. We value matching the right solution to the right problem and you will have the opportunity to improve and contribute to further development of the architecture. You’ll be working within the Archival Infrastructure and Technology team at EBI alongside developers, bioinformaticians and ontologists. As part of your day to day job, you can expect to interact with other groups at EMBL-EBI as well as our external collaborators in order to improve submission and update of data in the EMBL-EBI archives. This position offers exciting opportunities, both to work as part of a team on a large, multi-resources submission interface and to take the initiative in the development of new data processing and submission tools. It would be perfect for a motivated individual, especially one with previous software development experience interested in the life sciences or bioinformatics. You will be able to work independently in order to design solutions to problems as they arise, and succinctly present those solutions to the team Coordinator. You will need to maintain a strategic overview of the project and will work directly with the Coordinator to steer the team and their immediate tasks in the right direction and ensure successful delivery.
