*Generating knowledgebases from the interpretation outcomes
*Assists with the deployment, maintenance and troubleshooting of computational pipelines for WGS processing and analysis
*Liaises with internal colleagues as needed to ensure the provision and smooth running of the computational pipelines for data processing and analysis.

Skills required:

*Proficiency Python, Javascript and ideally Java
*Experience in designing and developing APIs and overall developing systems in a Service Oriented Architecture (essential)
*Proficiency in collaborative development tools such as Github, Confluence and JIRA
*Ability to work independently and to show initiative within a team
*Ability to prioritise and balance competing demands
*Ability to communicate effectively within a multidisciplinary team
*Flexible and co-operative approach to colleagues
*Excellent attention to detail

Desirable:

*Post-graduate degree or equivalent work experience in bioinformatics
*Experience in the development of NGS analysis pipelines for large numbers of samples
*Comfortable using high performance computing clusters
