Genesis Therapeutics | Burlingame, CA | Remote or Onsite | Full-time | https://www.genesistherapeutics.ai
We’re a hybrid AI + biotech start-up, developing novel deep learning and molecular simulation techniques to predict molecular properties and using them to accelerate the development of new medicines.
We raised a $52M Series A from Andreessen Horowitz + well-respected biotech investors, and have deployed our technology on several internal drug programs as well as a multi-target collaboration with Genentech, driving discovery progress at a speed rarely seen in the industry. Now we are scaling the team and technology to support many more drug programs in parallel as well as increasingly difficult protein targets.
We currently have a team (https://www.genesistherapeutics.ai/company.html#team) of about 30 people, split 50/50 between our ML / software team and our biochem team of veteran drug hunters in our own wetlab space. Our ML + software engineers are top-notch -- many graduates from MIT, UC Berkeley, Stanford. Previously worked at OpenAI, Google, Facebook, SingleStore (FKA MemSQL), Jane Street, etc.
We're looking for pure software engineers (no bio or chem experience expected) to help build flexible production systems to integrate our ML models, molecular simulation platform, and molecular generation techniques into our drug programs. This includes helping build individual algorithmic components, iterating on our chemist-facing model deployment pipeline, and leveraging our autoscaling cluster of hundreds of GPUs and thousands of CPUs processing billions of molecules / day.
We're also hiring ML research scientists and computational chemists. Here are all of our open roles: https://jobs.lever.co/genesistherapeutics/
Interview process: 1-2 one-hour technical phone screens, 1 day on-site (optionally virtual) with 3 one-hour technical questions. All these include extra time to chat, answer your questions about Genesis, and meet us. Can go from first email to offer in a week or two
Tech Stack: python, C++, pytorch, postgres, flask, docker, kubernetes

Smartleaf | Multiple Positions | Boston and Remote | Full-time | https://www.smartleaf.com/careers
Smartleaf does financial portfolio analysis as a service. The same tools used for managing extremely high net worth folks can be applied right down to accounts starting with $50/paycheck investments. Our clients are banks and RIAs, for the most part.
We are not a YC company but we have some interesting connections: our founding CTO is Mark Nitzberg, who is in this photo: http://www.paulgraham.com/yctable.html (Mark is now at https://brie.berkeley.edu/people/mark-j-nitzberg )
Smartleaf likes to hire people who are clever, competent, and kind.
We have eight open positions right now, and probably more in the near future. The tech stack is a C++ financial engine, Ruby on Rails web frontend, and Oracle transitioning to Postgres in the middle. Do read the website, and then send resumes and cover letters as indicated. Email is our native communications medium.
