Data Engineers are sought to join our interdisciplinary team in New York City. This high-visibility, high-impact role will offer an exciting opportunity to create data infrastructure for our drug discovery efforts, working closely with our world-class team of chemists, biologists, machine learning engineers and researchers, and computer scientists. Successful hires will directly contribute to creating systems and infrastructure for modeling, curating, and indexing the petabytes of data generated by our special-purpose supercomputers and our large Linux HPC and GPU clusters; to implementing pipelines for processing computational and experimental data sets; and to developing and maintaining data management policies and toolkits for drug discovery data processing. Ideal candidates will have extensive experience with large-scale data management; strong Python programming skills; experience with ML systems, frameworks, and data lifecycles; and a background in data structures and algorithms. Relevant areas of expertise include engineering of large-scale chemical databases, experience with architecting infrastructure for the handling of life science data, fluency with UNIX/Linux command-line tools like awk and sed, and familiarity writing scientific software, but specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical than intellectual curiosity, versatility, and a track record of achievement. D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES) develops and uses advanced computational technologies to understand the behavior of biologically and pharmaceutically significant molecules at an atomic level of detail, and to design precisely targeted, highly selective drugs for the treatment of various diseases. DESRES develops and refines advanced biomolecular modeling methods, software, and machine learning techniques in order to pursue both internal and collaborative drug discovery programs. Among our core technologies is a proprietary special-purpose supercomputer called ANTON® which we designed and constructed to perform molecular dynamics simulations more than 100 times faster than the world's fastest general-purpose supercomputers. We take great pride in the caliber of our team, and we offer above-market compensation. We also provide generous relocation and immigration assistance to new hires. In addition, we strive to support the personal and professional needs of our team members by offering generous benefits, opportunities for community engagement, and a variety of learning and development programs.
