Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is hiring a Remote Product Manager ImagingThe Opportunity
In our Science Initiative, our mission is to support science and technology that will help make it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of the century. Interdisciplinary teams of physicians, biologists, computational scientists, and engineers can expand our understanding of the human body and illness — the very science behind medicine. CZI fosters collaboration between scientists and engineers, develops tools and technologies, and builds support for basic scientific research.
Some Science Initiative tools include:
napari - an open-source interactive, multi-dimensional image viewer for python
IDseq - a metagenomics platform focused on delivering insights in infectious disease
cellxgene - an open-source interactive data explorer for single-cell transcriptomics data
Meta, a semantic discovery tool that provides a faster way to understand, organize and explore science through personalized feeds.
To further our mission to enable researchers to gain a much deeper mechanistic and quantitative understanding of biological systems using imaging, the Imaging Technology Team is currently focused on growing an open source image analysis and visualization ecosystem, built around napari, an emerging community run project, and the napari-hub.
As a Product Manager on the Imaging Technology Team, you will partner closely with a cross-functional team including Engineering, Product Analytics, Application Science, User Research, and Design to lead our contributions to the napari viewer and interface with the vibrant, active external napari developer community to deliver high quality Imaging software. You will work closely with other product managers on the Imaging Tech team to find synergies and ensure alignment across products. This role is critical for us to continue to deliver value to the Imaging Community, and ultimately, accelerate scientific discovery. You will
