Full-stack Engineer (front-end/back-end/distributed systems/Go/React/Cloud) for cancer research at UCL

Role overview

GRAIL UK is looking for experienced full-stack engineers to join its engineering team in London. Responsible for supporting clinical trials in the UK which are a collaborative effort between GRAIL and its research partners (NHS/UCL), you will work as part of a cross-functional team to design, develop and run systems that power the safe execution of clinical workflows and the collection of relevant data.

Your Background Includes:

  • You have 7+ years of relevant work experience designing, developing, testing and maintaining software.
  • You have experience working with cloud platforms such as AWS, GCP, or Microsoft Azure.
  • You are experienced in general purpose programming languages such as Go, Python, Java, Javascript, etc, but understand that ultimately these are tools to solve problems.
  • You are passionate about software engineering, as well as software engineering teams.
  • You have excellent logical reasoning and analytical skills, with a preference for simple solutions.
  • You are a strong written and verbal communicator and are able to adapt your communication style and the level of detail to your audience.
