PyMOL Engineer

We’re looking to hire a PyMOL Software Engineer to join us in our mission to design drugs that improve human health and materials that increase quality of life!

Schrödinger's on the cutting edge of computer-aided drug discovery and materials science. We collaborate with companies like Pfizer and Sanofi, and co-founded Morphic and Nimbus. We set the record for the largest and fastest cloud computing run, and our software suites continue to revolutionize the design of therapeutics and materials.

As part of the PyMOL team, you’ll play an integral role in the creation and maintenance of our software, in addition to supporting its users. We’ll give you the tools you need to go in a number of different directions: the department has projects pending in many areas, including PyMOL open source, product management, documentation and training, and graphics, frontend, and core software development. Ideally, we’re looking for a candidate with a strong background in both life science and programming - but if you’re already strong in one area, we trust you can learn the other!

Who will love this job:
  • An expert in protein chemistry, homology modeling, or cheminformatics libraries
  • A technologist familiar with technologies like PyQt, Graphics APIs (OpenGL, Vulkan), valgrind, conda, Unix-like environments, and git
  • A computer scientist with an interest in 3D graphics and GUI development
  • A great team player who’s also comfortable working independently

What you’ll do:
  • Actively contribute to the design, implementation, and testing of our software
  • Maintain legacy code
  • Answer users’ questions about our software

What you should have:
  • Ability to write Python and modern C++ code that is well-designed, modular, maintainable, testable, and documented
  • Experience with standard and third-party libraries (STL, numpy, etc.) is a plus

Schrödinger understands it’s people that make a company great. Because of this, we’re prepared to offer a competitive salary, stock options, and a wide range of benefits that include healthcare (with dental and vision), a 401(k), pre-tax commuter benefits, a flexible work schedule, and a parental leave program. We have catered meals in the office every day, a company culture that is relaxed but engaged, and over a month of paid vacation time. New York is home to our largest office and the center of our software development team, but we have teams all over the world.

Sound exciting? Apply today and join us!

We place the highest value on creating a safe environment where our employees can grow and contribute, and refuse to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious belief, sex, age, national origin, citizenship status, marital status, union status, sexual orientation, or gender identity. To us, “diversity” isn’t just a buzzword, but an important element of our core principles and key business practices.
