Frontend Engineering Internship

About Us

Ozette is a biotech startup that set out to develop a revolutionary immune profiling platform to turn data into actionable, interactive insights. Each year people are diagnosed with cancer, autoimmune diseases, and more. The immune system is the ultimate determinant of health and disease; however, it remains a black box. Leveraging our AI-first technology, we want to provide high-resolution understandings of the immune system to fully unlock its power. 

If you’re passionate about leveraging technology to improve health, explore interning with our innovative and creative team for three months. You will work on some of the most exciting initiatives by combining human-centered interactive visual interfaces to help solve scientific questions and aid interpretability.

Ozette's collaborative platform enables unprecedented transparency and reproducibility through its version-controlled analysis pipeline. It is built on TypeScript and React/RecoilJS and our backend APIs are written in Python/Flask, primarily, with most data stored in PostgreSQL and S3.

Our founders are leading experts in data science and medicine and we are backed by some of the best technology investors, including Madrona Venture Group (first investors in Amazon), Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and Vulcan Capital.
