About the role

Seqera is seeking a Design Engineer to sit at the intersection of web development and design. We’re looking for someone with strong visual taste to help build our creative initiatives across web and brand. When it comes to design and code, we’re looking to work with experienced people who can pick up any problem and solve it. At its core, Seqera is a tool for scientists where interactions and small details matter. We expect a broad set of design skills and the ability to create high-quality designs, interactions, and prototypes.

You’ll work with our team of designers and a web developer. We’re looking for someone who will not only enjoy developing for the web, but also designing great experiences as well.

While this position reports to the Design Director, you’ll end up collaborating across the company including folks from the Design, Product, Marketing, and Engineering organizations.

  • A portfolio showcasing a range of technical skills, a creative use of code, and prototyping as a way to explore solutions

  • Eye for good design and ability to express and strengthen a brand via web experiences

  • Demonstrated experience building end-to-end websites and landing pages

  • Intellectual curiosity – an enjoyment of solving hard problems and understanding the ‘why’ in addition to the right answer

  • Exceptional communication and collaboration skills

Nice to have:

  • Experience with GraphQL
