With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally decode and process our genetic makeup. We now have more data than ever before but providers don't have the infrastructure or expertise to make sense of this data. Here at Tempus, we believe the greatest promise for the detection and treatment of cancer lies in the deep understanding of molecular activity for disease initiation, progression, and efficacious treatment based on the discovery of unique biomarkers.

We're on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings. Our Knowledge Database (KDB) team is passionate and focused on maintaining and developing the Tempus KDB and internal tools that feed into the Tempus clinical reporting pipeline.

  • Maintain and create new internal tools for interfacing with the Tempus Knowledge Database (R-Shiny/Flask).
  • Interact cross-functionally with a wide variety of people and teams.
  • Produce high quality and detailed documentation for all projects.

Required Qualifications:

  • PhD or MS degree in a quantitative discipline (e.g. cancer genetics, bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science or similar) or a strong record of practical experience.
