Job Details

Eikon Therapeutics is a new biopharmaceutical company employing revolutionary technology at the interface 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 Experiment Design Team is an integral part of Eikon’s data-driven drug discovery engine, building interfaces and systems to capture the experiment design intentions of our scientist and engineer collaborators long before these experiments generate data in the lab.

We work creatively and collaboratively with teams ranging from Biology to Data Science to ensure that experiments designed with our internal tools can both run at scale in our onsite labs and generate data that can be consumed by our machine learning models and statistical analyses. We close the loop between wet-lab and dry-lab experimentation by building links between this rich design metadata and downstream experiment results.

About You 

You are an adventurous, creative, and collaborative software engineer eager to apply your talents to building software interfaces and tools that enable high-quality drug discovery experimentation at scale. You are enthusiastic about the opportunity to work on a breadth of intellectually engaging challenges involved in experiment design and data provenance, and are excited about being an early member of a small but growing team.

What You'll Do 

  • Develop back-end systems to capture rich datasets on the design parameters and intentions of Biologists, Medicinal Chemists, and Automation Engineers.
  • Develop front-end tools and interfaces to guide users through designing high-quality drug discovery experiments.
  • Build back-end tooling to close the loop between our experiment design and experiment results datasets.
  • Collaborate with scientists and engineers to build experiment design tools which integrate with both wet-lab and dry-lab experiment workflows.


  • BS in Computer Science or a related field.
  • Experience developing modern, production-ready web applications.
  • Programming expertise in Python and/or JavaScript/React.
  • Experience with web services and applications frameworks (Django, Flask).
  • Familiarity with relational databases and database languages.
  • Experience with pandas and numpy is a strong plus.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Enthusiasm for collaborating with internal users.

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 have received both an FDA-approved primary vaccine series and at least one booster vaccine against COVID-19 as of their start date. If you are unable to meet this requirement due to a disability or serious medical condition, or due to a sincerely held religious belief, you will have an opportunity to request a reasonable accommodation.


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.
