At Genestack, we are tackling the underlying computational and scientific challenges of bioinformatics in order to provide researchers with software tools that will streamline the discovery process and drive forward precision medicine, drug development and bioinformatics research. Our platform is already deployed at leading pharmaceutical and consumer good companies and this is just a beginning of our journey.

We are looking for a talented, agile project manager to join our team of excellent software engineers and data scientists. By joining us, you will have the opportunity to lead teams of passionate developers to build and deliver high-quality software to our high-profile customers. You will also get to collaborate very closely with clients on a range of diverse, challenging and interesting long-term projects.

About the role:

As a software project manager, you will:

  • manage cross-department teams of local and remote software developers, building applications and features for the Genestack platform in the context of customer and internal projects
  • be the key point of contact with customers throughout the project, collecting and updating requirements, communicating progress and feedback
  • communicate with key customer and internal stakeholders from diverse backgrounds (management, IT, biology, bioinformatics...)
  • ensure projects are running smoothly and on schedule
  • coordinate software releases
  • document project progress
  • tailor project management processes to fit the needs of specific projects and teams
  • gather customer requirements during the project definition phase and contribute to writing project proposals
  • provide resources estimates for the project and features delivery schedule
  • communicate with the marketing and business development team to help foster customer relationships and seize opportunities for further projects and collaborations

About you:

We'd love to hear from you if you have:

  • a background in software engineering
  • experience managing teams of software developers in an agile environment
  • a master's degree or PhD in a quantitative field (computer science, bioinformatics, engineering, etc.) or equivalent industry experience
  • experience as a business analyst / gathering software requirements
  • excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • an interest in biology or bioinformatics

Above anything else, we are looking for a strong cultural fit – a person with genuine passion for technology and genomics, who can work as a part of a multi-cultural team dispersed between two offices, willing to learn from others and share their knowledge. In exchange we offer career growth opportunities, a fun and relaxed work environment, flexible working hours, a great office in central St Petersburg and a competitive salary.

Now is a great time to join us, as the company is growing rapidly, offering great career building opportunities and a lot of room for growth.
