Biodock AI


Biodock is a cutting-edge, seed-stage bio AI startup backed by Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator (seed blog post here). We are building the future of AI cloud computing for microscopy images, NGS sequencing data, and more. Advances in our technology translate directly to advances in disease understanding and treatment. We give our product for free to academic scientists as part of our mission to accelerate research around the world.

Biodock runs AI bioanalysis in the cloud, which users access through our dashboard. We are expanding functionality to process, visualize, and analyze data within our dynamic app, and looking for talented engineers to own the application and drive development from the ground up.

We're looking for people who want to make a massive impact. You'd build critical features from the ground up, and deliver much faster than you have at previous jobs. We're creating a true engineering-first culture, so we're looking for someone who is serious about building the company and who can wear many hats.

  • Be exposed to every level of the company, working closely with the CEO to meet business goals and iterating off customer feedback.
  • Write incredibly high-impact code to drive our mission forward and work with new technologies.

🧪 About Us

Biodock - Cloud AI platform for biological data analysis

Biodock was founded by two Stanford scientists (Stanford Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology, Stanford Computer Science-AI) who both came from research backgrounds, and are passionate about improving and accelerating research breakthrough. We've grown rapidly, being an essential part of R&D at hundreds of academic labs like MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, and Columbia, and at pharmaceutical companies all over the nation. We're backed by Y Combinator in the W21 batch and just raised a $2.1m seed led by Andreessen Horowitz.

We just hired an amazing full-stack JS engineer from Facebook and an ML/backend engineer from Pinterest - work alongside the best!
