Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch\u2019s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation\u2019s first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women\u2019s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.
The Hutch Data Commonwealth (HDC), a new organization within the Center, has a mission to develop new capabilities to facilitate scientists\u2019 interactions with large and complex data sets, enabling novel approaches in cancer research. The HDC Software Development team works with product management and data scientists to provide the Hutch research community with flexible, extensible, programmatic and interactive access to relevant datasets, analytical tools and visualization toolkits. Our culture is one of service and fun. We value career growth and provide funds for books and training. In addition, developers are encouraged to attend lectures at the Hutch on topics ranging from data mining to progress on anti-body therapies.
This is an exciting opportunity to contribute in a professional software development team at one of Seattle\u2019s premier non-profit organizations. You will be building tools central to the research efforts of Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, supporting our mission to find cures for cancer. You will work at our lake-shore campus, featuring a gourmet-quality cafeteria, on-site daycare and an on-site health clinic for employees, less than a mile from downtown Seattle.
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
