Company Overview: Terray Therapeutics is a venture-backed biotechnology company leveraging our vast high-quality data to optimize the path from discovery to transformative therapeutics. Our approach delivers on the promise of computation to revolutionize drug discovery. Through our closed-loop wet lab discovery platform and data-rich AI, we overcome existing constraints on chemical data by systematically mapping the biochemical interactions of massive and diverse small molecule libraries to identify novel therapeutic compounds. Access to this quantitative data at scale allows us to intelligently navigate an infinitely extensible and highly diverse chemical space to efficiently design, discover and optimize small molecule therapeutics. Our internal development programs are focused on immunology. In addition to these programs we also work with leading pharmaceutical companies.  

Our integrated computational platform, tNova, harnesses our novel affinity binding technology, tArray, unique resynthesis capabilities, and broad biology infrastructure. tArray is the foundation of our discovery engine. It enables us to screen hundreds of millions of compounds in minutes and return quantitative data on each compound. Vast, high purity, and high diversity compound libraries are rapidly iterated using best-in-class chemistry to unlock chemical insights at the scale necessary to power AI-driven drug discovery.

Position Summary: Terray Therapeutics is seeking a motivated, creative, and experienced Software Engineer. As an integral member of our data team, the candidate will be responsible for developing and maintaining the software systems that power our wet-lab and computational discovery platforms. The position will report to the Head of Computational and Data Sciences.

The core responsibilities of this job will be:

  1. Write production-level, scalable code for our image processing pipeline and hit discovery engine
  2. Work with scientists to understand their needs, develop prototypes, and transform them into quality code
  3. Manage our expanding code base and implement controls/unit tests for ensuring resiliency of our workflows in the face of experiment/infrastructure changes
  4. Design and maintain easily digestible user interfaces to help wet lab scientists seamlessly run experiments and analyze results

Experience and Qualifications: Given the company’s size, anticipated growth and fast-paced environment, the organization requires a software engineer who is thoughtful, high energy and can partner with the broader organization to further enhance our next generation drug discovery capabilities.

Part of Terray Therapeutics’ success is nurtured by a hands-on work environment where everyone is accountable, everyone is vested in a vision of excellence, and everyone actively takes part in the success of the business.
