Software QA Engineer

What we do

Practichem, a Raleigh-based biotech firm focused on speeding antiviral cures to market, uses a patented protein chromatography instrumentation platform to deliver time and cost savings in the race to deliver critical viral health solutions worldwide. 

Chromatography instrument technology lags well behind consumer tech. Many current scientific instruments are controlled by 1993-era software. When compared to current technology, chromatography instruments do not store and share data well. Studies reveal scientists spending the majority of their applied time extracting, converting, and loading data as part of their workflow. This is not a research science problem, or a chromatographic problem. This requires a software technology solution.

Practichem believes scientific instrument software should be as intuitive to use as a smart phone app. We’re setting a new standard for the laboratory by creating browser based software that runs our scientific instruments. Help us drive innovation to the laboratory for greater discovery and collaboration.

  • Write automated integration tests, maintain and update existing tests.
  • Participate in design discussions.
  • Test software and hardware on web applications and instrumentation.
  • Clearly and consistently document issues, bugs, and testing procedures.
  • Prepare and present technical information to departmental, cross-departmental, and executive groups.
