Software Engineer II


Alnylam was founded in 2002 on a revolutionary vision and bold mission which remain firmly in place today. We are leading the translation of RNAi as a new class of medicines with a core focus on RNAi therapeutics toward genetically defined targets for the treatment of serious, life-threatening diseases with limited treatment options for patients and their caregivers. In January, we announced our "Alnylam P5 x 25" guidance that expands our focus from the rare disease space to include prevalent diseases increasing our development pipeline to support these newer programs. Alnylam is proud to have been recognized as one of The Boston Globe's Top Places to Work from 2015 through 2020.

The Bioinformatics group is looking for a software engineer to develop, maintain and support web applications and tools utilized by Research, Early Development and other groups within Alnylam in order to improve and quicken our ability to bring novel therapeutics to patients in need. The novelty of the RNAi therapeutics drug modality requires creation of custom software that delivers inventive data analyses and visualizations that support our world-leading capabilities in RNA computational RNA biology and chemistry. In addition, we are migrating many of our applications to AWS in 2021 and standardizing our dev-ops practices in the new environment. We offer the opportunity to actively participate in the improvement of patient's lives through the development of Alnylam's sequence-based siRNA therapeutics, a vanguard of precision medicine.
