Web Engineer at Emerald Cloud Lab | Powderkeg

Location: South San Francisco, CA

Employment Type: Full-time

Team: Engineering

The Web Engineer is responsible for ECL’s main website that helps introduce the cloud laboratory to the world and support our user community of scientists to transcend the lab. Current features include our web help files with 100+ scientific experiments at the user’s fingertips and our customization flows to find the ideal cloud lab experience for our users. ECL is looking for entry level, senior, and staff software engineers to build leading-edge web experiences and set the foundation for scalable and delightful software for our cloud lab community. We’re a small team, which means it is essential for every team member to be ready to take ownership and lead projects. Feature development and proximity to overall UX are both central in this role, so the Web Engineer works very closely alongside the outstanding ECL Design team.

As an early team member helping to build the Engineering team as well as the product, you will also be encouraged to contribute to the software engineering practices we maintain in our own work, and which we bring to ECL as a whole. We strive to be continually critical of our process, cutting cruft and homing in on performance multipliers.

You might be a great fit for the Web Engineer at ECL if ...

  • You have a BS in computer science or information technology or equivalent experience.
  • You are familiar with JavaScript, TypeScript, React, HTML5, and CSS3. Familiarity with GatsbyJS is a plus.
  • You have experience with CDN, SEO, and Google Analytics.
  • You have experience with web 3D rendering and/or complex web rendering technologies.
  • You have great attention to detail and strive to deliver beautiful and friendly user interactions.

About ECL


The Emerald Cloud Laboratory (ECL) enables life scientists to move out of the lab, and to conduct research entirely from a computer. Stepping away from manual completion of experiments at the bench, scientists on the ECL leverage the remote, automated execution of all standard biology and chemistry experiments in Emerald’s industrial lab facilities, working within a software platform for all stages of research workflows, from experimental design to data analysis.
