Intellectually curious, creative, and versatile software developers with backgrounds in the computational sciences are sought to join our New York-based team.  If you seek out hard problems, enjoy programming in C/C++ and Python, and have strong communication skills, then we want to hear from you.  Roles are available for applicants with a minimum of three years of industry experience.

As a member of our highly interdisciplinary team, you will contribute to an ambitious, long-term project aimed at fundamentally transforming the process of drug discovery and design.  The software we build is used to carry out research in structural biology and biochemistry, and could push the bounds of what is possible with the aid of special-purpose computational tools.

If you were to join our team, you might contribute to software development and workflow engineering for drug discovery, including development of cheminformatics tools and algorithms; large-scale virtual screening and docking; computer-aided molecule design; development of scalable chemical databases; modeling, analysis and visualization of molecular systems; and a range of similar tasks integral to advancing our scientific and drug discovery programs. Our projects uniquely run on commodity and GPU clusters as well as on our special-purpose supercomputer, ANTON®, capable of simulating biomolecular phenomena orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible.

We are looking to add innovative contributors who share our commitment to fostering a stimulating, positive, and collaborative work environment.  In addition, we strive to support the personal and professional needs of our team members by offering generous benefits, opportunities for community engagement, and a variety of learning and development programs.
