Dear Hiring Manager,
It is with genuine enthusiasm that I submit my application for the position of front-end software engineer at 10x Genomics. As a front-end developer with close to four years of professional experience, I know that my diverse skill set will make me an asset to the team.
I believe that software development is fundamentally a process of sharing knowledge. At Nventive, I popularized the use of Storybook for developing and documenting our React components. In doing so, I worked closely with the team's designer to learn the logic behind his designs. In return, I taught him the capabilities and limitations of CSS. This type of tight collaboration is what I hope to bring to my time at 10x Genomics.
"Mastering biology to advance human health." 10x Genomics's mission statement is undeniably noble, and I am excited at the opportunity to work towards realizing it. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
