Senior/Staff Deep Learning Scientist

New York, New York, United States

Company Description

Quantum-Si is pioneering a new generation of technology to create the market of Next Generation Protein Sequencing (NGPS). Similar to Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS), which gave us a blueprint of what could happen by studying our DNA, NGPS enables an unbiased view of the proteome through improved scale, resolution, and sensitivity leading to better understanding of disease and improved general health. 

We operate at the intersection of biochemistry, chemistry, hardware, molecular biology, photonics, semiconductor chips, and software with a goal to drive a digital transformation of a $44 billion dollar proteomics market.

Join us on the journey to transform healthcare, motivated by the idea that the products you work on will change the lives of millions of people around the world.

Job Description

We are searching for a deep learning scientist to join our growing team working on challenging problems in the field of single molecule sequencing. The candidate should be a self-starter with the ability to quickly adapt to new situations, learn new technologies, and collaborate and communicate effectively. This role is initially focused on using ML and DL to enhance and improve our signal processing pipeline. Various responsibilities include developing and testing models for filtering, characterizing, and understanding time series signals from our sensor under different experimental conditions; helping to define and develop the ML/DL infrastructure required to support this work; developing an evaluation framework for benchmarking performance and visualizing the model’s inner workings; estimating data requirements and performing necessary wrangling, including data augmentation methods, to achieve goals.
