  • Product Owner (Biosciences)

    Computercraft is looking for a Product Owner to help develop and manage data-access-related products, tools, and protocols for the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP), a unique scientific resource of human health and genetic data at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), part of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Created to support NIH’s data-sharing policy, dbGaP is one of few bioscience resources that combine human genetic sequence data and phenotype data—information on the specific characteristics and medical conditions of human subjects. Researchers who receive grants from NIH—and others who wish to share their research findings—can submit detailed phenotype, genotype, sequence, and other study-related data to dbGaP in a secure manner. NCBI makes this valuable trove of data available for advanced biomedical research. Researchers seeking access to datasets of interest from dbGaP must undergo a rigorous approval process to ensure the highest scientific, privacy, and ethical standards. The dbGaP Product Owner has a unique opportunity to shape the mechanisms by which these highly valuable data are used to further human health.

    NCBI’s web and data products are the preeminent, open-source tools and technologies used worldwide to contribute to biomedical research and discovery, facilitate the work of clinicians, and drive the frontiers of science and medicine. NCBI provides free access to petabytes of biomedical and genomic information, and scientists all over the world use its products.

    • Work with government entities to comply with regulations, balancing them with end-customer’s ease in user experience

    • Engage in industry outreach to promote the product
    • Report to senior stakeholders
    • Manage the budget
    • Manage team resources

    • Strong customer engagement, networking, and communication skills

    • Experience working in Agile Scrum teams in a software development process
    • Experience working on large and cross-functional projects in a complex, policy-driven environment
    • Ability to balance multiple goals and deadlines under resource constraints
    • Ability to incorporate and diplomatically resolve conflicting direction from multiple management, user, and technical stakeholders
