Job TitleSoftware Integration Co-Op
The Diagnostics Software Services team is seeking two Co-Op Software Integration Engineers to join our team. This individual will be part of a dynamic group of engineers responsible for documenting, deploying, validating, and supporting newborn screening software applications in North American and Latin American laboratories.
Our team provides software tools that manage our customers' laboratory work-flow and help enable the early detection of certain life-threatening genetic and metabolic disorders in newborn babies. If detected and treated soon enough, most babies will be able to live healthy, normal lives. To learn more about newborn screening please visit http://www.savebabies.org/.
The Software Integration Co-Op position requires constant team and customer interaction.

In addition, you will gain an understanding of the science behind genetic screening.
The Software Integration Co-Op position relies on the following tools: Microsoft SQL Server, Visual Basic, and C#.

Interest in health & life sciences industries
Ability to function both independently and on multi-disciplinary teams
Strong problem solving ability and technical aptitude
