How you will Achieve More with Intellia:

As an Automation Engineer, you will join a collaborative team of engineers whose focus is the integration and ongoing support of a range of automated platforms across the research organization. By joining the screening group of a gene editing company, our main focus is on NGS methods to identify gene editing events in support of the company’s pipeline.  You will contribute as part of a team of engineers to turn the needs of our scientists into automated assays utilizing our collection of liquid handling, sample storage and fully automated high-throughput platforms. You will grow your skills in the following areas:

  • Collaborating to implement liquid handling and sample storage automation across R&D
  • Integrating sample tracking and labeling into new and existing workflows
  • Troubleshooting hardware, software and user errors promptly and independently
  • Collaborating with Software Engineering and Informatics team to test and troubleshoot LIMS integrations and acting on end-user feedback
  • Working with scientists to execute experimental design based on user requirement specification
  • Bringing measurable metrics to existing workflows to track performance
  • Collecting feedback from end users within the research team to identify pain points

About You:

Are you a natural problem solver? Do you have strong independent troubleshooting skills but have always wondered what it would be like to collaborate with a team?  Are you a fast learner who enjoys implementing lab solutions using automation? We are looking for a candidate with a B.S/M.S. in Molecular Biology, Computer Sceince or Mechanical Engineering disciplines with 2+ years of lab instrumentation hardware and/or software experience. The ideal candidate will have experience with at least one liquid handling scripting and/or scheduling software platform (Venus, Cellario, VWorks, EVOware etc.) and a track record of solving complex problems in a lab setting. 

Meet your Future Team:

You will be joining our Automation team which is part of the broader AEGIS (Automation Engineering, Genomics, Informatics, Screening) team.  You’ll directly report to the Principal Automation Engineer whose small but quickly growing team possesses a wide-ranging set of skills learned over years of varied Biotech industry experience.  Given the breadth of applications we support, the candidate will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of disciplines within automation exploring new equipment in collaboration with not just Screening but also Chemistry, Process Development and Delivery Sciences teams in support of Intellia’s gene editing pipeline.

The team is currently working onsite therefore, candidates who apply should to be local to Cambridge, MA or open to relocating. While much of the day-to-day operations require wet-lab work, our team is focused on building not just technical expertise but fostering an environment for growth of people whose skills span across engineering, software, and biology. If you join our team, you can expect to join a hardworking and collaborative environment that stays flexible and strives for a healthy work-life balance. We look forward to fostering your skills, learning from your experiences, and building a larger team that will make a difference in patient’s lives.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • BS, MS in Engineering discipline with molecular biology lab experience

  • BS, MS in Molecular Biology with 2+ years of strong, applicable industry experience
