Coding Boot Camp Turns a Scientist into a Programmer

Posted by Bernie Chu on Aug 4, 2015 9:30:00 AM


A web of complex relationships brought me to Bina and keeps me enthralled every day. After completing a Ph.D. in chemical and systems biology, I realized what I really wanted to do was code. I attended a coding boot camp and was looking into jobs creating games and apps. That was where the groundbreaking work seemed to be, but I’m glad I discovered something more meaningful. 

What attracted me to Bina was that the people are the best of the best. I always feel like I’m playing catch-up, which is a good thing from a growth perspective. I’m learning new things every single day.

I am happy that I get to be immersed in science even though I have switched gears in my career to become a user interface engineer. There are a lot of complex relationships between various parts of our offering that make for some really interesting challenges. We iterate very rapidly so there’s always something new and impactful to build. 

The team culture here is FOCUSED! We are at the forefront of solving challenging genomic problems. And while I’m new to coding, I always feel like my voice is heard.

Bina is a great place to work. People sometimes ask, “Is Bina a tech or healthcare company?” I would say that we are using high tech on the backend to solve healthcare challenges – there is never a dull moment.
