  • An ESPP pro who can administer equity outside the US
  • A proficient user of Microsoft Office and Google suites
  • An excellent verbal and written communicator who enjoys working collaboratively and independently
  • A detail-oriented self-motivator who can manage multiple priorities in a fast-paced environment

What you’ll do:

  • Administer global equity plans and ensure that all equity transactions are processed and settled accurately and in a timely fashion
  • Collaborate with Legal and Finance, as well as external service providers, to execute multi-faceted tasks related to processing equity awards, stock releases, and ESPP transactions
  • Coordinate with Finance, Legal, and Payroll to ensure effective transaction processing
  • Assist Legal to open and close insider trading windows
  • Maintain record-keeping of equity data and support to ensure SOX compliance
  • Reconcile and perform auditing procedures relating to equity plan transactions to ensure accuracy on a monthly basis

  • Communicate with and resolve employee questions related to equity compensation programs
  • Organize and develop participant educational communications, materials, and trainings regarding our stock plans, tax considerations, and other related issues
  • Liaise with outside brokers and Legal to manage Section 10b5-1 transactions in the record-keeping system. 

What you’ll need:

  • Bachelor’s degree
  • At least two years of service in a stock administration role at a publicly-traded US company
Pay and perks:
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 401k, 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.  Our Administrative and Human Resources departments also plan a myriad of fun company-wide events. 
We've been working remotely from across the world over the past few months because the health and safety of our employees is paramount. Nonetheless, we have kept Schrödinger's outstanding culture going through a series of online fitness classes, trivia nights, happy hours, and so much more.
Sound exciting? Apply today and join us!
As an equal opportunity employer, Schrödinger hires outstanding individuals into every position in the company. People who work with us have a high degree of engagement, a commitment to working effectively in teams, and a passion for the company's mission. 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, disability, national origin, alienage or citizenship status, marital status, partnership status, caregiver status, sexual and reproductive health decisions, gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation. To us, "diversity" isn't just a buzzword, but an important element of our core principles and key business practices. We believe that diverse companies innovate better and think more creatively than homogenous ones because they take into account a wide range of viewpoints. For us, greater diversity doesn't mean better headlines or public images - it means increased adaptability and profitability.
