Job Details

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.


As a member of the software team, you will implement solutions to challenges that are defined in collaboration with both fellow developers and scientists. This role is for a Senior Software Engineer, Front-End, but the work will have considerable emphasis on user interfaces. As part of the team developing the data visualization and quality control interfaces for Eikon’s core data-driven drug discovery engine, your work will have significant utilization and visibility within the company. 

About You 

You are an adventurous, passionate, and creative software engineer eager to apply your talents to empower interdisciplinary scientific exploration, inaugurate a radical drug-discovery paradigm, and ultimately create novel medicines. You will bring to this challenge enthusiasm, high energy, intellectual curiosity, and scientific rigor. You are excited about being a foundational member of a small but growing team. As part of Eikon’s diverse team, you will interface with biologists, medicinal chemists, microscopists, and optical and automation engineers to design and deploy computational solutions that enable the exploration and quantification of Eikon’s high-content datasets.  

What You’ll Do

  • Develop front-end tools for data visualization and quality control interfaces for Eikon’s core data-driven drug discovery engine.
  • Develop back-end pipelines and front-end dashboards for analysis visualizations to drive decision-making for drug discovery programs.
  • Work collaboratively with scientists and engineers to understand tactical needs, develop prototype and production software to keep experiments moving forward.
  • Work on multiple projects simultaneously, developing milestones and deadlines in coordination with the broader company goals.


  • BS in Computer Science or in a related field.
  • 3 years of JavaScript and Python programming expertise required.
  • Experience developing modern web applications with React or similar.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Team-oriented, flexible, able to adapt to rapidly evolving goals and challenges. 
  • Enthusiasm for drug discovery essential.

At Eikon, employee compensation also includes bonus and equity compensation, in addition to several generous benefit programs, including:

  • 401k plan with company matching
  • Medical (premiums covered by Eikon at 95%), dental and vision insurance (premiums covered by Eikon at 100%)
  • Mental health and wellness benefits
  • Weeklong summer and winter holiday shutdowns
  • Generous paid time off and holiday policies
  • Life/AD&D Insurance (premiums covered by Eikon at 100%) and optional supplemental employee-paid life/AD&D policies
  • Enhanced parental leave benefit
  • Daily subsidized lunch program when on-site

The expected salary range for this role is $145,000 to $167,000 depending on skills, competency, and the market demand for your expertise.


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.
