Our product, Lifebit CloudOS, is the world’s first federated genomics platform for unified, secure research over distributed big data. No one on the planet has anything close. Think best-in-class UI/UX, seamless integration with open-source tools, powerful cohort browser, advanced AI. We’re leading the industry and leaving competitors in the dust. We intend to keep it that way.

Because while we know our technology is unmatched, we also know we can keep making it greater. That’s why we need more superstars like you – to help take us to incredible new heights. (Plus, we’ve got some really big plans afoot…)

If you like how we sound and you share our commitment to open source, bioinformatics, big data, Machine Learning, and AI we want to hear from you today.
