Site Reliability Engineer


About The Position

DeepCure is seeking an exceptional and highly-motivated Site Reliability Engineer to join our interdisciplinary Platform team.

At DeepCure we apply Machine Learning in novel ways to Drug Discovery and are using it to create a better process for the discovery of new drugs, for cancer and other diseases.

We are a startup in the biopharma space, and our team is composed of scientists and engineers who share an interest to create something new and exciting and to have a true impact on people's lives.

We are at an early stage, we face interesting professional challenges and are working in a space with few existing solutions, therefore, we are looking for people who share our passion and who bring solid engineering experience which is critical to the success and fulfillment of our vision.

We’re looking for skilled site reliability engineers and/or skilled software engineers looking to make a transition into the SRE space. Our site reliability engineers are focused on designing, building, and operating our hybrid cloud/on-prem environment using software engineers' practice and methodologies.

More about DeepCure:

DeepCure, founded by a team of researchers from the MIT Media Lab, develops Artificial Intelligence to revolutionize pharmaceutical development. We reimagine the drug development pipeline as if it was designed today: with access to the latest breakthroughs in Deep Learning, Cloud Computing, and our proprietary database of one trillion chemistries. Our mission is to save lives by enabling the discovery of highly effective drugs that are extremely unlikely to be discovered by any existing drug discovery pipeline.

By improving the breadth, accuracy, cycle time, and cost of pre-clinical drug development we turn that mission into reality. 

We are currently building our DeepCure Greece team. Our team members in Greece will enjoy the close collaboration with our Athens-based team members, working in our new office in Athens, while simultaneously, working closely with our Platform team members, located in the United States.

  • Strong software engineering skills that can be applied to both operational tools as well as application design and architecture.
  • Automation experience or keen interest in learning: eliminate toil by automating everything through scripting, configuration management tools (Terraform/AWS CDK/Gitlab CI/CD), code, and proper tooling.
  • Operations experience or desire to learn it: managing critical production infrastructure and are familiarity with incident response, scaling, and rapid growth related challenges.
  • An insatiable intellectual curiosity and the ability to learn quickly in a complex space
