About Panorama Labs

Documentation in the Life Science R&D laboratory is still mostly created by human hands. This means that, among other industries, pharmaceutical development relies on subjective and tainted data throughout their development process. From first principles, we have deducted that this is likely a major causation of the increasing drug prices in the industry. 

 

We are rebuilding the R&D environment, the lab, from the ground up while integrating technology to remove the flawed old ways of documenting in R&D.

 

Practically, this means we are designing new, digital protocol standards and building smart lab equipment with IoT capabilities. We do this in a small and highly focussed team, where everyone is broadly interested and talented in their field. The founders are both technical and business minded, and are now looking to expand the team.

Work culture at Panorama

Like most startups, we value creativity, curiosity and inclusivity. 

 

Curiosity is King.

Creativity leads to the best results if it is present in someone with a broad interest and solid base of knowledge. We encourage research and education on company time so the potential for creative application of that research and education is maximised.

Outsource the ‘boring’ stuff

A startup is always constrained in terms of resources, and the most important resource we have is employee creativity. So the moment a job becomes too ‘run-off-the-mill’, we outsource it to a third party. 

Stand your ground, find common ground

We encourage thorough discussion of work related issues in order to decide what the best route forward is. Since these discussions can get heated, we make sure that everyone feels confident in standing their ground, while keeping in mind that the goal is always to reach common ground.

Software Developer

The software engineer we hire will ideally feel comfortable with the following aspects of the job:

  • Above all, you are a learner. You are hungry for information and the opportunity to apply that information.

  • You'll help us build the software aspects of our first product. A hardware device with IoT capabilities and sensor readouts at a rapid rate. Think VR controller type data.

  • You’ll come up with creative solutions to problems we encounter on the way.

  • You'll program data analysis algorithms (python), databases (SQL) and some front end stuff (JavaScript).

  • Your focus will be on prototypes. We make difficult things work. Once all parts work, we re-iterate to make them work properly together.

  • You'll work 36h - 40h a week. There are no specific work hours. We see it as our responsibility to supply you with things to do to fill that time in a meaningful way. You will never have to sit out a clock.

  • You'll be one of our first hires at a high risk, high reward startup. Times can get tough, but if you stick with us, we will make sure your time with us will be rewarding in every way we can.

What we offer:

  • We will pay you a fair salary (€28k - €40k). Depending on skill level, we can discuss other reward options.

  • We’ll make sure you have everything you need for building the prototypes delivered to wherever you want to work. You can use the 3D-printer/soldering iron etc etc for your personal projects as well.

  • We’ll do our absolute best to supply you with meaningful work that makes use of your creativity and skill as best as possible.

  • If you show the kind of potential we will expect from the person to fill this job, we will make sure you’ll have the opportunity to grow with the company at a very high rate over the next 3 years.

  • We’ll make sure you have what you need for a good working space at home in the form of a budget for a desk, chair, work computer, work phone etcetc..

  • Allocated time for education and personal development. If you stay with us, we want you to grow, if you decide to leave us, we hope you’ll do so in an even better state than we found you.
