At Radix, we build a compiler and operating system for the computer architecture expressed by a biology lab. We do this to allow biologists to disseminate their work in a runnable form to other labs. We're currently hiring Scala engineers to help us with this. Our entire stack is in scala, from our compiler to our runtime implementation to our device drivers. We interface with sensors and lab equipment to provide abstractions that allow biologists to write their lab protocols as formal programs, constraining the acceptable environmental conditions in their protocol, which we check at compile time to provide error logs and insight into why protocols may not reproduce.

We've just cleared our Seed round, with investors like MIT's The Engine, Y Combinator, and Firstminute capital. We're a rapidly growing team that could use a person like you. Even if you don't meet all of our requirements, we're happy to talk and see if we can work together.

### Required experience

- Scala/Matryoska/Akka/Cats/Scala.js
- Functional programming
- Has built DSL's and DSL compilers before
- Formal logic
- Scheduler and malloc implementation knowledge
- High-performance algorithms (Only-once, streaming, distributed, approximation)
- Git in a monorepo

### Nice to have

- An interest in biology / biology lab exposure
- An interest in driver development
- ETL with Kafka experience
- Spark
- Transactional systems implementation experince
- Declarative language cost models and planners
- Graphical programming language design
- Design thinking
