Powering the Foundry with Software

Overview

Software is the driving force behind Ginkgo’s Foundry. Our software engineers design and create the interfaces that scale biological engineering.

Ginkgo is making biology easier to engineer, so that one day DNA may be as easy to program as software. Our software engineers build the systems that generate, process and store huge amounts of data with minimal intervention and high experimental repeatability. Our software engineers strive to make this a delightful experience for everyone at Ginkgo.

Design, Build, Test

Every Foundry team at Ginkgo uses our custom in-house software. Ginkgo software engineers create the systems for design engineers that code combinatorial designs for DNA constructs, automate the process of DNA ordering by translating thousands of designs into creations for our build engineers, and code the software that analyzes the NGS, mass spectrometry, and HPLC data generated by our test engineers.

Tools and Methodologies

Ginkgo’s software team is organized in scrum teams that focus on particular areas of our software. They employ technologies like React, Redux, Python Django, Python Flask, Ruby on Rails, Docker, Gitlab, continuous integration and continuous testing to ensure best of breed software and results. Our software teams practice the Agile methodology to deliver great results and constantly improve our processes to make development more efficient and fun.

Software engineers at Ginkgo develop the systems that enhance biology as the most powerful technology on the planet. See open software positions here.
