Vancouver, BC, Canada
Posted on Friday, April 21, 2023

AbCellera is a young, energetic, and rapidly growing biotech company with an amazing team that searches, decodes, and analyzes natural immune systems to find antibodies that its partners can develop into drugs to prevent and treat disease. We are seeking a Mechatronics Engineer to join our growing team. Our mechatronics team is a group of motivated people who work in collaboration with life scientists to constantly improve our antibody discovery platform. Ultimately, we are all working towards a common goal which we strongly believe will make the world a better place.

As a mechatronics engineer at AbCellera, you will work in a small cross-functional team to develop the next generation of our antibody discovery platform. We are looking for talented engineers who can make a 10x impact to our antibody discovery pipeline, and solve difficult challenges spanning multiple disciplines including optics, motion control, electronics, and software. Don’t worry if you don’t have a biology background, we’ll get you up to speed.

How you might spend your days:

  • Designing next generation optomechanical systems to improve various aspects of our antibody discovery platform.
  • Developing and deploying computer vision and computational imaging algorithms.
  • Working collaboratively with life scientists, engineers, and software engineers in a cross-disciplinary team.

Our current tech stack:

  • LabVIEW
  • Python
  • Go
  • Solidworks

We’d love to hear from you if:

  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering, physics, material science, or equivalent practical experience.
  • 2 years of experience in robotics, optics, or controls, or 1 years of experience with an advanced degree.
  • Experience developing LabVIEW applications for hardware automation, data acquisition, and image analysis. Bonus points if you are a Certified LabVIEW Developer.
  • Experience applying systems engineering methods to complex systems which integrate motion control, optical systems, networking, and advanced controls.
  • Hands-on experience designing, building, testing and troubleshooting custom optomechanical systems.
  • Knowledge of computational imaging methods.
  • Knowledge of optical microscopy, especially fluorescence microscopy.
  • Familiarity with machine learning algorithms and tools.
  • Experience with imaging hardware such as cameras, microscopes, and lens systems.

Offers & benefits:

  • An attractive compensation package, including health and lifestyle benefits
  • A minimum of 3 weeks’ vacation
  • Opportunities for personal and professional development
  • And of course, the opportunity to make a real difference, working on challenging problems that matter
