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 elsewhere, to help find the meaning in vast quantities of genetic data by supporting the development of software to process and manage that data.

We offer a chance to be part of the solution of an important problem. While no previous experience with software in a healthcare environment or knowledge of genetics is required, the willingness to learn enough contextual information is required for effective collaboration.
