We are looking for an Applications Engineer who will work with our recently acquired Genohm SLIMS (LIMS and ELN) platform be part of our dynamic team. Labs have traditionally used pen and paper (lab notebooks) to record their activities, and used electronic spreadsheets to record their data and do their analysis. But times have changed and technological advances require labs to move to more advanced solutions, which will automate their procedures and help them better track their activities. SLIMS is a platform that allows tracking all stages a sample follows to the final result. SLIMS captures information about the sample, requests for measurements, and follows its entire workflow through the lab, tracking manual operating procedures, automated instrument steps, and calculations until the final report. If you decide to join our team you will be working directly with our clients. The tasks you will be performing are varied and a creative mind is needed to be able to identify and implement customer solutions.

As a SLIMS Application Engineer, you will

  • analyze customer's needs, and translate this into SLIMS workflows
  • configure the SLIMS platform to match the lab's requirements
  • create plugins for connecting instruments or displaying custom forms or portals
  • script a lab's in-silico tools into our integration framework
