Job Description

 The Small Molecule Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence (ML/AI) team seeks a talented and experienced, self-driven machine learning engineer to lead the design, development, testing, and delivery of software workflows to support ML/AI efforts focused on discovering groundbreaking therapeutics. This position will work closely with ML/AI experts to enable cutting-edge research in small molecule drug discovery. A critical goal will be to enable model development by ML/AI scientists with a workflow that supports testing, validation, dynamic updating, and deployment. You will join an interdisciplinary team of scientists and software engineers at our South San Francisco, CA research headquarters.

The successful candidate will work directly with cross-functional ML/AI and scientific domain expert teams across the small molecule research organization to design, operationalize, and deploy high-quality, sustainable ML/AI solutions addressing impactful scientific challenges. Projects will span diverse technologies, architectures and problem domains, including data provenance, model curation, model performance monitoring, high performance computing, workflow orchestration, deep learning, web services and cloud computing. The common thread is creating innovative ML/AI systems supporting small molecule R&D groups.
