Help Claritas realize its mission to become a world leader in the sequencing and analysis of pediatric genomic data, helping doctors, clinicians and researchers improve the lives of children and their parents. You’ll work closely with experts from Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and other institutions, helping to find the meaning in vast quantities of genetic data by designing and writing software to process and manage that data.

Our team provides excellent mentoring and growth opportunities, using state-of-the-art technologies. We offer an extraordinary chance to own a big piece of an important problem. No prior knowledge of genetics is required, but you must be curious and excited about learning this rich and fascinating domain. A background in applied math, biology, or informatics is a plus.
