TandemAI is an advanced technology company dedicated to accelerating drug discovery and lowering the barrier to entry to the most advanced tools in this space. Our integrated discovery platform combines a proprietary suite of AI and physics-based tools, custom-built supercomputing infrastructure, and large-scale wet lab operations to deliver a turnkey drug discovery solution. We partner with the global scientific community to dramatically improve the success rate of pre-clinical drug candidates from hit ID to candidate delivery and, ultimately, help improve the lives of patients waiting for new treatment options.


Tandem AI is seeking an experienced Senior Front End Engineer to join our growing Web Applications team in our NYC office. You will actively contribute to front-end initiatives for our cutting-edge computational platform. The candidate, experienced in building scientific web applications, will work to create a state-of-the-art client-facing molecular design web application that seamlessly integrates TandemAI’s physics-based computational drug discovery platform (Note: the candidate must be able to commute to our NYC office twice a week).

You will:

  • Work closely with stakeholders and a multidisciplinary team of computational and medicinal chemists, data engineers, biophysicists, and biologists to write and maintain clean, robust code for a world-class computational drug discovery web application.
  • Discuss and make technical design and architecture decisions
  • Review code developed by team members and provide feedback to ensure best practices
  • Ensure long-term maintainability and consistent performance of deployed software through creation and upkeep of automated tests


  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Chemistry, or related quantitative fields with 3-5+ years professional web development experience
  • Demonstrated track record of developing data intensive web applications using React
  • Strong foundational understanding of state management concepts; experience with React-Query is a plus but not required
  • Experience with REST API design and service layer architecture.
  • Experience with computer-aided drug design and physics-based simulation a plus, but not required


  • The salary range for this role is $135-$165k

At TandemAI, we are committed to building a world-class team whose culture is founded on collaboration, intellectual curiosity, trust, and respect. We firmly believe that our exceptional staff will be the key to our success and are committed to high standards and rigorous science. Because of this, we are prepared to offer a competitive salary, stock options, and a wide range of benefits that include healthcare, a 401k, pre-tax commuter benefits, and a flexible work schedule.
