The GA4GH software engineer will support the development and implementation of open source technical standards for genomic data sharing. These APIs and other standards will be implemented by genomic data projects from around the world in order to improve health outcomes. This individual will contribute to standards development work across the six Technical Work Streams based on timing and priorities, including critical tasks that are necessary to complete standards development, but are unlikely to be carried out by external contributors. Day-to-day activities may include building frameworks, writing documentation, and performing compliance testing. This individual will also play an important role in helping to disseminate, maintain, and version GA4GH standards. They will also play an important role in maintaining a strong connection between GA4GH and the Data Science Platform (DSP) community within the Broad.

The Software Developer role will support the development and implementation of open source technical standards for genomic data sharing. These APIs and other standards will be implemented by genomic data projects from around the world in order to improve health outcomes. As part of your activities you will have the opportunity to be exposed to a large set of technologies. Due to current global health concerns, this position is fully remote until further notice. The Software Developer will support the delivery of high-quality technical standards, by supporting projects through the product approval process; develop open source implementations for approved GA4GH technical standards, including APIs and new bioinformatics file formats; develop software to support the implementation of GA4GH technical standards worldwide, such as testbed platforms and documentation tools; write clear, comprehensive technical documentation; join project calls with international collaborators to develop and prototype new specifications and features, and provide updates and demonstrations; and act as GA4GH technical liaison with other projects at OICR, e.g. ICGC-ARGO.
