Subject: 16.12.09 Scientific Software Developer, Protein-Ligand Database at Schrödinger, NYC

Our mission:

Dramatically improve human health and quality of life by developing and applying advanced computational methods that transform the way medications, chemical compounds, and materials are designed.

What we do:

We develop a rich web application for drug researchers, replacing labor-intensive procedures in favor of automation. Our platform gives access to an unparalleled combination of collaboration, data access, and computational modeling tools that speed up the drug discovery process.

Who we are:

We are a community of passionate, friendly, and skilled team players. As a diverse set of developers, entrepreneurs, and scientists, we have made the decision to collaborate together on something with significant human impact. We take pride in our relationships with many satisfied clients, including numerous large pharmaceutical companies. Our investors are fellow technology visionaries, including David E. Shaw and Bill Gates. As we are a growing team, we need you to help us raise our velocity to keep up with our expanding client base and product offering.

You are:

You develop quality code that takes into account the immediate needs of the present along with the scalable requirements and upcoming plans of the future. You get excited to work on challenging technical problems, like to be part of a team of mentors who all learn from each other, and want to make a meaningful contribution. You enjoy development that draws on concepts such as Big O, distributed systems deployment, and reliability, and have honed your craft on a side project or two. While past experience in the physical sciences (chemistry, biology, physics) is not a requirement, a strong scientific interest is crucial to your success within this role.

The position:

As a Scientific Software Developer at Schrödinger, you will help deliver our cutting-edge modeling and simulation technology to chemists, biologists, and crystallographers throughout our biotech and pharmaceutical client organizations. The systems you will help build injects computational science throughout the creative process of drug discovery. Problems include scientific workflow execution, molecular design, search, experimental data management, scientific analytics, and real-time collaboration. You are a full member of our core engineering team and will work side-by-side with senior software engineers and scientists.
