Job Details

Company Overview

Terray is a biotechnology company with the technology, data, and mindset to radically change the way we discover and develop small molecule therapeutics. We explore molecules and targets broadly and deeply with a sophisticated integration of ultra-high throughput experimentation, generative AI, biology, medicinal chemistry, automation, and nanotechnology. Everything the company does is grounded in an iterative approach, producing massive amounts of precise, purpose-built data mapping interactions between small molecules and causes of disease that gets increasingly valuable with each cycle of design and experimentation. The company’s platform uniquely blends experimentation and computation to improve the cost, speed, and success rate of small molecule drug discovery and development.

Position Summary

Terray is seeking technicians on our microarray preparation and imaging team. This team is the backbone of everything we do at Terray, as they are responsible for producing the ultra-dense microarray chips that power our entire discovery effort.

The technicians are responsible for each key step along this process, namely:

  • Loading the on-bead libraries into microwell arrays on small chips
  • Operating Terray’s proprietary, automated imaging and fluidics systems to identify the oligonucleotide sequence at each of the 32 million locations on each chip
  • Analyzing the resulting data and determining which chips can progress to DNA-removal and screening

This work is critical to Terray’s mission and requires precision, attention to detail, commitment and a passion for transforming the way we find new drugs for patients in need.

Experience and Qualifications

Part of Terray Therapeutics’ success is nurtured by a hands-on work environment where everyone is accountable, everyone is vested in a vision of excellence, and everyone actively takes part in the success of the business. Terray Therapeutics supports a positive work environment comprised of engaged employees who feel appreciated, recognized and free to be creative.

Required Qualifications
  • Bachelor’s degree in biology, chemistry, or related disciplines
  • Excellent attention to detail.
  • Strong written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Desire to be a team player in a cross-functional environment.
Preferred Qualifications
  • Experience in a manufacturing environment
  • Experience with fluorescence microscopy
  • Experience with Python

Given the company’s size, anticipated growth and fast-paced environment, the organization requires a scientist who is thoughtful, high energy and can partner with the broader organization to further enhance our next generation drug discovery capabilities. 

She/he will exhibit the ability to work well under pressure to provide results in a short timeframe. The company is looking for a highly responsive, goal-oriented individual who will bring significant energy and drive to solve complex technical problems and help us achieve our mission to advance human health.

Compensation Details

$62,500-$80,000 (annually) depending on seniority; participation in the Company's option plan; 3% 401K contribution; full benefits
