You can think of BioRender as the “Figma or Canva for scientists,” with a suite of web-based graphics communication products that empower scientists to create beautiful scientific visuals and presentations with ease.
As an Engineering Manager leading Search and Discovery, you will help accelerate our ability to return billions of hours to scientists by empowering them with the most relevant content in the most highly trafficked part of our application: the core illustrator. We want to help scientists find the science they're looking for in their own language, and build a 'visual auto complete' that can personalize and anticipate what scientific content would be most relevant to a scientist using our product.

  • Technical depth: Facilitate great technical decision-making across a broad technical stack, having passion for the technical aspects of your work, but a desire to let engineers drive the details
