Software Engineer


Cerillo is an early-stage company based in Charlottesville, Virginia working to develop novel laboratory instruments. We seek to hire a bright, creative, motivated person to lead the development of our software stack; we have an architecture developed with some initial prototypes and first drafts, but we’re looking for someone to get in the weeds with us on a full-time basis and get us moving forward.

At Cerillo, we believe that diversity drives innovation. Different perspectives and unique ways of thinking are key to bringing new ideas into the biotech sphere. As a company in that industry, we are committed to creating an inclusive environment where employees can bring their whole selves to work and work together to bring meaningful technologies to our global customer base. Cerillo is an equal opportunity employer. We encourage individuals who are passionate about working in an organization that values and promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion to apply.

Key Responsibilities

Your job responsibilities may vary, but will primarily consist of full-stack development of the Cerillo software platform (both desktop and web app with a shared codebase) to interface with, display data from, and control our portfolio of products using best-practices for security and scalability

Our technology is full-stack JavaScript with AWS as our cloud provider and Electron for desktop software deployment.

  • Bring professional experience in full-stack JavaScript development to the Cerillo team
  • Support other software development goals throughout the company as needed
  • Draw on their experience to help us implement and maintain DevOps best practices

  • Commit to well-organized and well-documented code
  • Take ownership of their work and its place within the bigger picture
