  • Overview

    ReadCoor, Inc. is seeking a senior engineer to contribute to the development of our cutting edge, three-dimensional sequencing devices. We design and build fully integrated systems that employ state-of-the-art motion control, nanoliter-precision fluidics, high-power laser illumination, and sophisticated imaging modalities to spatial map and sequence complex biological samples. As key member of the engineering R&D team, you will fill a cross-functional role at a systems design and integration level.


    The ReadCoor R&D team is a dynamic group of engineers and biomedical scientists with deep experience in biotechnology platform development.  Team members work to develop the foundational technologies behind our work on artificial neural networks, gene therapies, and emerging infectious disease detection. Your role will involve technical development and leadership across the engineering disciplines. You will help lead a cross-functional team of engineers to develop custom solutions that allow us to push the limits of multi-dimensional motion control and high-throughput image acquisition.



    • MS in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, systems engineering, robotics, or equivalent and extensive industry experience
    • Minimum of 6 years of hands-on development experience, preferably in a short development cycle R&D environment
    • Experience designing, implementing and testing complex electromechanical systems (i.e., multi-subsystem devices)
    • Previous experience in a cross-functional role is a must; the ability to lead subsystem-level design and implementation is critical
    • Experience designing and developing test and qualification programs / plans for production-quality products
    • Strong interest in robotics and a desire to learn new and cutting-edge tools
    • Leadership experience in program / project management


    Nice to have

    • Experience with optics / optical engineering
    • Familiarity with embedded system design and integration
    • Experience designing and/or integrating custom PCBs, particularly those involving STM32-series (or similar) microcontrollers
    • Proficiency in Python and/or C++ (for systems and/or embedded applications)
    • Interest in (and potential familiarity) with biotechnologies, particularly as they related to DNA sequencing or imaging applications
    • Experience with machine vision systems (design, integration, and/or programming)
