[PLUG] Forwarding a Job Offer

The following was sent to me by a recruiter so I figured I would forward it to everyone on the list. The location is in Center City with as the recruiter put it "a major player in the health care industry".

Here are the details regarding the position I mentioned to you. I really appreciate your help!

This position will leverage Cloud Infrastructure and CI tools to help development teams produce pipelines and quality software applications.  It will also interface with the Research Computing Organization, which manages petabytes of data storage, thousands of cores of high performance compute and a hybrid private/public cloud.   The successful candidate will work closely with bio-informaticians, software developers and data science teams to understand data intensive scientific problems and provide technically innovative scalable solutions.
The successful candidate will be passionate about automation, able to work independently and as an interdisciplinary team member, and have good organizational skills and attention to detail.  Strong critical thinking, troubleshooting and problem solving skills are also required for this position.  A basic background in life sciences is helpful but not required.  We are looking for people who share our eagerness to develop novel ways of advancing child health using technology.
