Job Details

Company Description  

Eikon Therapeutics is a new biopharmaceutical company employing revolutionary technology at the intersection of chemistry, engineering, computation, and biology to discover novel treatments for life-threatening diseases. Eikon’s discovery platform is built on groundbreaking innovations from its founders (Nobel Prize, 2014), culminating in the creation of microscopes which enable real-time, molecular-resolution measurements of protein movement in living cells, thereby unlocking otherwise intractable classes of proteins as drug targets. 


The Senior Manager, Software Test will build and manage a team of Software Test Engineers that will design and implement tests for both R&D and production software integral to Eikon’s drug-discovery and related product development efforts. 

About You 

You have a passion for testing (and breaking!) software both mechanistically and scientifically, exposing bugs and conceptual errors. You have a desire deeply understand the broad scientific and business context (the “why”) of scientific experiments as well as “how” these experiments are designed, performed, and analyzed. You are a compassionate manager able to help your team juggle competing priorities and stay focused on long-term goals, while encouraging them to have flexibility to keep up with the pace of experimental science.  

What You’ll Do 

  • Build and lead a team of test engineers that will work closely with product management, software development and scientific teams to ensure high-quality software tools. 
  • Write and review test plans in some cases in a controlled document environment.  
  • Design and implement integration and end-to-end tests for existing, new, and third-party tools. 
  • Identify gaps in unit and component-level tests and coordinate multiple software engineering teams in filling these gaps.  
  • Compile metrics on code quality, complexity and gaps in test coverage and drive improvement with the software team. 


  • B.S. in computer science or equivalent experience 
  • 8+ years of experience as a manager of professional Software test team. 
  • Experience with Agile/Scrum workflows and Atlassian CI/CD tools such as bamboo, Jira, confluence, and X-ray is required. 
  • Experience with testing tools such as Celery, Selenium, pytest, and postman is a strong plus. 
  • Familiarity with scientific software and automation systems in a multi-disciplinary biotech environment (e.g., high-throughput screening, genetics, microscopy) 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills 
  • Team oriented, flexible, able to adapt to rapidly evolving goals and challenges 
  • Enthusiasm for gaining biological and drug discovery experience essential 

Eikon is proud to be an equal opportunity employer and will consider all qualified applicants for employment. 

In accordance with the Company’s duty to provide and maintain a safe workplace, the Company requires all employees to be Fully Vaccinated with one of the FDA approved COVID-19 vaccines, which includes those vaccines that have received the FDA’s emergency use authorization.  You will be expected to be Fully Vaccinated as of your Start Date.  If you believe that you are exempt from this requirement under an applicable law or regulations, including Americans with Disabilities Act and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act, you will need to contact the Company’s Human Resources group. For purposes of this section, Fully Vaccinated means (i) the completion of the vaccination regimen as approved by the FDA (by way of example, 2 doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and 1 dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine), and (ii) timely receiving booster vaccination, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 



Eikon is a pioneering drug discovery and development company that leverages superior engineering and high-performance computing to analyze single molecule protein behavior in living cells. We are engineering a battery of innovative tools and technologies for biological exploration in drug discovery and beyond.

Eikon thrives on the energy and creativity of interdisciplinary teams. We are physicists and chemists, biologists and engineers. We spend our days context-switching between multiple scientific languages. We work with lasers, super-resolution microscopes, and robot arms. We leverage machine learning, cell line engineering, and the collective intelligence of world-class scientists and technologists to observe therapeutically relevant biology in a way no one has before.

We’re endlessly curious, intellectually honest and we love what we do. We’re driven to learn the true mechanisms of biology and pharmacology at the molecular level, to make the biggest difference in as many lives as possible.
