About PostEra

PostEra offers Medicinal Chemistry powered by Machine Learning

PostEra offers medicinal chemistry powered by machine learning. Drug discovery R&D is slow and expensive and this has limited the biopharma industry from getting new drugs into development and new cures to patients. PostEra is building an end-to-end med chem platform, powered by ML, to develop new cures for diseases and serve the world's ever expanding community of drug hunters.

We've raised $26M from top tech/healthcare investors and signed large multi-year deals with companies like Pfizer and the NIH to find new cures for diseases.

What are we working on?

The answer is many things but here's our top priorities right now:

  • Partnerships: We partner with drug hunters and help them get cures to patients faster. We're currently collaborating with Pfizer and several small biotechs, using all of PostEra's ML to help their drug discovery.
  • Manifold: The first-of-its-kind SaaS platform for scientists to get molecules made.
  • COVID Moonshot: PostEra is helping lead the world's largest open-source drug discovery effort. Moonshot is an international team of scientists working on an antiviral cure for COVID and in 1 year we've gone from ideas on a website to potent compounds which should soon be ready for human trials.
About the role
Skills: Torch/PyTorch, Python, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, Amazon Web Services (AWS)

What is the role?

  • Work with our engineering, machine learning, and drug discovery teams to productionalize and scale our best machine learning algorithms that are used to solve challenging drug design problems.
  • Consistently hunt for new techniques to improve efficiency and keep the infrastructure running smoothly.
  • Be a key contributor to planning out long-term plans for our model serving infrastructure.

What skills you should have:

  • At least 2-3 years industry experience deploying and maintaining deep learning models with cloud infrastructure.
  • Proven competence in databases, API design, and CI/CD.
  • Comfort with modern development and deployment tools (Docker, Git, Linux, AWS).
  • Interest in working on chemistry and drug design problems.

Bonus Points

  • Experience in deploying ML models in chemistry or drug design domains.
  • Familiarity with deploying models in PyTorch.
  • Knowledge of human-in-the-loop types of deployments
