Senior Software Engineer / Cloud

At Atomwise, we invented the first deep learning neural networks for structure-based small molecule drug discovery, and we’re currently deploying it in one of the largest applications of machine learning for life sciences. We work on Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, drug-resistant antibiotics, safe pesticides, among treatments for other diseases. We’ve partnered with 4 of the top-10 US pharma companies, raised over $50M from top VCs, and have 100+ diverse projects currently running.

You should think about joining us if you care about enabling the application of machine learning to essential problems. For example, we are not constrained by latency or uptime but by scaling and parallelization. Today we can analyze more than 100 million molecules per day, but there are about 10^24 synthetically-accessible molecules. Come help us pick up a couple of orders-of-magnitude.

Our team has over 20 Ph.D. scientists who contribute to a high-performance academic-like culture that fosters robust scientific and technical excellence. We strongly believe that data wins over opinions, and aim for as little dogma as possible in our decision making.

Our Engineering team is small and growing quickly. As a result, there’s plenty of opportunities for career growth and to have a significant impact on our success.
