Careers at ThermoFisher Scientific


My work is a Story of Potential


My IT Story

“I provide infrastructure services for our Microsoft Windows & Non-Windows Operating Systems, including design, specifications, procurement, building and maintenance. The Infrastructure mainly runs in a virtual environment on VMware. My duties include Windows OS (operational system) patching, troubleshooting Virtual server and connectivity issues. Essentially, I cover anything related to a Windows server and all Servers in the Virtual Environment. I also manage the company’s group file shares from the shared storage in the North American Data Center. My position helps ensure that the company’s global servers keep running, and if there is a problem, I troubleshoot and correct that problem. When necessary, I will coordinate the various vendors who can assist in correcting the problem.”


James' Story

“I am currently working on the development of a qPCR (quantitative polymerase chain reaction) analysis application. We are developing a Web-based analysis application on the Thermo Fisher Scientific Cloud, a powerful cloud computing platform that connects scientists, instruments and software in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment. My customers are scientists from all around the world who want to use this web-based application. One of our customers is using our software to investigate whether a certain cancer drug is suitable for a patient with skin cancer. He conducted his research using our qPCR instrument and utilized the software to discover which drugs were suitable for the patient. Using the values generated by our software, the scientist made a deduction on which drug should be used to help the patient manage their cancer. I believe that the software I develop will help scientists conduct their research more efficiently and effectively.”


Ivonne's Story

“I provide bioinformatics and software support for development of new Next Generation Sequencing instruments and applications. Computational modeling and bioinformatics analysis is the crucial part of modern sequencing technologies.  On a daily basis I am working on improving accuracy and efficiency of sequencing and bioinformatics software for products being developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific. I work on R&D projects. We are anticipating customer needs and expectations based on surveys as market research.  In our R&D work we are trying to exceed these expectations. Being in a large group working on advanced R&D, I am always surrounded by talented and passionate people. I engage in close and productive interaction between engineers, molecular biologists, software and bioinformatics developers helps to quickly generate and implement innovative ideas with a real world impact. ”


Vadim's Story

“As an IT Business Analyst, I work with stakeholders on the business side and the technology side to translate business needs into technical solutions. In IT, our customer is the business. So the current project I’m working on is eCommerce focused - taking current Thermo Fisher and LSG products and enabling them to be sold on the web. There are a lot of technical details and considerations behind something that sounds so simple. The work that I’m doing will enable Thermo Fisher customers to purchase products directly from the web, which will make their lives easier, by simplifying where they go to purchase Thermo Fisher products. I t’s really all about teamwork. We each have different strengths and our project manager recognizes that, and allocates us accordingly.”


Hannah's Story

“I develop algorithms for biotechnology data analysis that model instrumentation effects, chemistry and molecular biology reactions using statistical modeling, machine learning, signal and image processing techniques. I typically start with exploratory data analysis to develop insights about the problem. I often prototype my solutions in MATLAB and then deliver final analysis modules that integrate into customer facing software in JAVA. Our software is deployed on the AWS cloud and our engineers constantly get to use the large variety of AWS services in their development. We are encouraged to attend trainings and conferences to keep up with the latest technology trends. We have the occasional hack-a-thon sessions to engage in creative fast-paced coding, solving cool problems in a group settings, where we both accomplish much and learn much in a short span of time. Beyond being a software engineer, I often liaise between the Engineering, Biochemistry, Business and Legal teams to drive seamless integrations. I advise with patent and FTO evaluations. And part of my role is also to assist the business drive product adoption by participating in trainings, meet customers to gather technical feedback and prepare customer facing technical materials to mitigate product related questions.”
