  • Implement unit tests and integration tests to drive development efficiency
  • Participate in an environment that encourages learning and high code quality

What you'll need:

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Experience with most of:

    • Relational or non-relational databases
    • Large scale distributed computing (Kafka, Hadoop, MapReduce, Spark)
    • Building a system that operated on greater than 10 machines
    • Experience with microservices architecture

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 work schedule, and a parental leave program. We have catered meals in the office every day, 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. Schrödinger is honored to have been selected as one of Crain's New York Best Places to Work in 2018 and 2019.

We've been working remotely from across the world over the past few months because the health and safety of our employees is paramount. Nonetheless, we have kept Schrödinger's outstanding culture going through a series of online fitness classes, trivia nights, happy hours, and so much more.
