Colorifix was founded by two synthetic biologists who were developing biological sensors to monitor heavy metal contamination in drinking water in rural Nepal.
While testing these sensors in Kathmandu, Jim and Orr began to learn about the enormous impact of the dyeing industry on water and human health; and realised that, rather than simply monitoring the problem, they had the tools to solve it. With some creativity and a bit of luck, Colorifix was founded in 2016.
We seek to hire a highly motivated SysAdmin to join our rapidly growing team. We had 5 employees at the start of last year, are now 35, and have a plan to double within the next two years. We have a lab in Norwich and are currently setting up a new site in Cambridge. We are looking for a person to bring IT expertise and establish/lead the IT Support for the growing team. An ideal candidate should be confident in implementing and managing IT infrastructure following the best practices; a jack of all trades, good at tasks from helping Joe to connect a printer to laying out a company guideline on IT security. Advantage will be given to candidates familiar with our stack or those who will convince us to change it. The successful hire will be given an option to work from home or from either of our Cambridge or Norwich sites. However, they will be asked to visit either site when required with one-day’s notice.
Reports to: Head of Informatics
Location: Visits to Norwich Research Park and Cambridge North, with possibility of remote working
Holidays: 25 + BH
