Loyal is a seed stage company developing drugs to help dogs live longer, healthier lives. We see aging as a disease that is able to be slowed and improved with medicines. Loyal was spun out of Laura Deming’s The Longevity Fund and is well funded by top venture capitalists and angels.
We are hiring a Data Engineer to join the rapidly growing Bioinformatics team! We are looking for someone with a strong technical background to drive forward multiple data pipeline projects and grow their skillset. This is an excellent opportunity for someone with a solid programming background who wants to transition into data engineering.
Loyal is an early stage company, which means there are no stringent hierarchies, silos or bureaucracy. While you will be ultimately responsible for executing key data engineering projects, you will have ample opportunity to work with, learn from, and influence other sides of the company.
Loyal is founded and led by a first-gen, female CEO – we encourage and look forward to diverse applicants.
