Genesis is building a world-class ML team in an industry that has underutilized computational methods for too long. We are creating the best molecular generation and property prediction platform in the world, filling in a critical piece in the drug discovery process. We need you to build scalable, robust infrastructure to support the cutting-edge research that will enable us to find cures for a wider range of diseases, faster than ever before.

You will

    • Improve our data infrastructure, built on GCP cloud storage and Postgres, optimizing for data integrity, performance, and flexibility manipulating billions of molecular datapoints
    • Improve our computational infrastructure of 100s of GPUs and 1000s of CPUs on top of Kubernetes within Google cloud, optimizing for cost-savings and fault-tolerance
    • Build a colocated GPU-heavy cluster that will bear the brunt of our compute needs, and automatically overflow requests into our Google cloud cluster
    • Work closely with software engineers, AI engineers and medicinal chemists to make our infrastructure maximally adaptive to different use cases

You are

    • A strong software engineer, experienced writing production code and driving projects to completion, preferably at either a top industry company or a fast-moving startup
    • Preferred: Experienced building and maintaining a distributed backend in production, ideally with Docker + Kubernetes
    • Preferred: Good with SQL, experienced optimizing schema + queries for performance
    • Preferred: Strong understanding of networking + network security
    • Nice-to-have: Experience building computers from parts, professionally or as a hobby

What we offer

    • The opportunity to work on challenging, high impact ML infrastructure that is immediately deployed to accelerate the discovery of new medicines
    • Strong technical coworkers in AI, software, and chemistry, who all have a powerful mix of intellectual curiosity and humility. The team reads and discusses 1-2 ML or chemistry papers every week to stay on top of the field and inspire new ideas
    • Competitive salary and equity. Medical, dental, and vision insurance, and a 401(k) program
