Come join us in our mission to decode biology to radically improve lives, while doing the most impactful work of your life.

The Impact You’ll Make

You will manage the development of Recursion’s suite of digital chemistry tools that enable highly efficient exploration and evaluation of chemical space, such as - for example - 3D virtual screening and generative chemical modeling. You will help our team create and implement new approaches to solve chemical problems in drug discovery, exploring the feasibility and utility of methods such as large-scale ligand-based virtual screening, protein target simulations, small molecule property calculations, and machine learning-based predictions. In particular, you will:

  • Guide strategy for ongoing initiatives and future opportunities
  • Innovate on novel digital chemistry tools 
  • Multiply a cross-disciplinary team of data scientists, chemists, and engineers
  • Plan and coordinate delivery of complex, high-impact initiatives

Join us to guide the development of the industry’s first truly industrialized drug discovery engine.

The Experience You’ll Need

  • 3+ years of experience with digital chemistry, for example in chemical computer simulations and modeling, software development, or computational machine learning for chemistry.
  • Demonstrated success in delivering novel systems and solutions
  • Experience in product management or similar practice including strategy, planning, prioritizing, building, implementation, and gathering feedback for complex team efforts
  • Understand how to translate between experts in engineering, chemistry and data science to identify business needs and find solutions
