Subject: 22.03.28 Technical Writer, Schrödinger, New York/Portland/Cambridge/San Diego

We’re seeking a Technical Writer to join us in our mission to improve human health and quality of life through the development, distribution, and application of advanced computational methods.

Schrödinger is on the cutting edge of computer-aided drug discovery and materials science. We set the record for the largest and fastest cloud-computing run, and our software suites continue to revolutionize the design of therapeutics and materials. FEP+, WaterMap, Glide, Maestro, and LiveDesign are just a few examples of the programs we’ve created.

As a member of our Education team, you’ll have the opportunity to reach scientists across the globe and help integrate the exciting potential of computational drug and materials discovery into an array of research. You will also have the chance to apply design thinking to improve how scientists access information and answer their own questions regarding the use of Schrödinger software. This role will collaborate with several other teams to make high-quality, user-friendly documentation easily accessible with a goal of enabling researchers to find the answer they need.

Who will love this job:

  • A scientist with exceptional communication, writing, and editing skills, or an experienced technical writer with a background in computational chemistry, biology, or materials science
  • A well-organized and detail-oriented professional who brings a working knowledge of common computational chemistry techniques
  • A skilled user of computer programs like Adobe, Flare, Confluence, and/or Jira
  • A creative thinker who enjoys working collaboratively
  • A person who is able to work in a team, as well as independently on self-directed tasks

What you’ll do

  • Collaborate with education, product development, application science, and support teams to develop documentation in computational chemistry, biology, and materials science
  • Write, edit, and design documentation targeted towards varied audiences
  • Manage complex, multi-step documentation projects in coordination with multiple stakeholders
  • Work with the education team to advance educational content in a team-oriented environment
  • Develop in-depth familiarity with our entire suite of small-molecule, biologics, and materials science software, including packages for docking, molecular simulations, homology modeling, pharmacophore modeling, cheminformatics, and quantum mechanics

What you should have:

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in a relevant scientific discipline
  • A scientific background with experience in technical and/or professional writing, or a technical writing background with experience in chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, physics, materials science, or a related field
  • Interest in small-molecule drug discovery, materials science, biologics and/or informatics
  • Understanding of molecular modeling software tools

In addition to a resume in PDF format, please provide a cover letter explaining why you think you would be a great fit for the Education team.

Pay and perks: Schrödinger understands it’s people that make a company great. Because of this, we’re prepared to offer a competitive salary, stock options, and a wide range of benefits that include healthcare (with dental and vision), a 401k, pre-tax commuter benefits, a flexible schedule with hybrid work-weeks, and a parental leave program. We have catered meals in the office, a company culture that is relaxed but engaged, and over a month of paid vacation time. Our Administrative and Human Resources departments also plan a myriad of fun company-wide events. New York is home to our largest office, but we have teams all over the world.

As an equal opportunity employer, Schrödinger hires outstanding individuals into every position in the company. People who work with us have a high degree of engagement, a commitment to working effectively in teams, and a passion for the company’s mission.
