Remote job description

Industry: Information Technology & Services, Computer Software,Start-up, Biotechnology, Biopharma, Pharmaceuticals
Employment Type: Full-time
Job functions: Software Development, Programming
Location: Remote, flexible

About the role:
Science Exchange is looking for a Senior Developer to join our engineering team. The Senior Developer will be involved in the full development life-cycle from technical design to development, testing, and deployment, and be responsible for translating designs and prototypes to code leveraging out of the box features and custom development. The successful candidate will need to have hands-on expert implementation, configuration and/or development experience with our platform and APIs.

About You:
You will partner with our Product Team to create great solutions to complex problems. This work is substantially more challenging than merely pushing strings around. We already operate at scale, and we are looking for ways to build out new features, refine the existing platform, and enhance performance as we continue to support a world-class operations team. We believe in being agile as a way to focus on delivering real business value without wasting time on things that do not support our ability to deliver those capabilities. You will be a key part of a small team that works hard every day to creatively build great software and systems.

About Science Exchange:
Science Exchange is a rapidly growing SaaS company that powers R&D outsourcing for the world's top life sciences companies. Our marketplace gives scientists access to the innovation and research they need and our platform fully automates R&D outsourcing from source to pay so scientists can focus on what they love-science. We're looking to expand the revenue organization with individuals who are intellectually curious, are strong advocates for their prospects and customers, and who want to join our mission to improve the efficiency and quality of scientific research.

Science Exchange was seeded out of Y Combinator in 2011 and has raised nearly $70M from top venture funds including USV, Maverick Capital, and Norwest Venture Partners. We're a remote first company with employees all over the U.S., Europe and Asia/Pacific who exemplify our F.O.R.C.E. values (Fearless, Open, Respectful, Curious, and Entrepreneurial).


    • You should have an expert understanding of Apex, SOQL, Email services, as well as SOAP and REST APIs.
    • You must be a great communicator. We are a remote-first company across the US and Europe. Being able to get on the same page about what we need to do, where the problems are, and how to collaborate to fix them is key. We are looking for highly qualified, independent professionals who can dig into hard problems on their own.
    • You will be part of a great team, but you will still need to be a creative, self-starter who can bring imagination and skill to bear in delivering your own stories.
    • You will guard the security and integrity of our information systems with a fierce determination to deny entry to all unauthorized and malformed requests.
    • You will collaborate with our team and our partners to build great APIs into our core platform business services.
    • We are looking for a special kind of developer who wants to be a member of a strong team of peers and is not just looking for another job. We want someone who is eager to learn and grow as a software developer.

Preferred Qualifications

    • Salesforce developer certification such as Platform Developer II.
    • Demonstrated equivalent experience will also be considered.
    • Experience integrating Salesforce with external systems.
    • Guide fellow developers in best practice Salesforce development.

Education and Experience

    • We require a B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent experience.
    • You also need solid experience with agile development, remote collaboration via GitHub (or a similar hosted git platform), object oriented thinking, and design patterns.
    • Experience with typescript and/or serverless architectures.
The US-based salary range for this full-time position is $150,000-$190,000. Our salary ranges are determined by role and level. The range displayed on each job posting reflects the minimum and maximum target for new hire salaries for the position across all US locations. Within the range, individual pay can be determined by additional factors including, but not limited to, job-related skills, experience, and relevant education or training.
