About Us

Matterworks, Inc. is building the world’s most powerful metabolomics platform, which accelerates the discovery, development, and manufacturing of biologics and gene therapies. A venture-backed startup, our mission is to democratize metabolomics and catalyze its widespread adoption and integration into the life sciences.

The field of metabolomics sits today where genomics was positioned in the early 2000’s: ripe for a breakthrough that drives explosive adoption of metabolomics as an essential tool for the life sciences. To realize this opportunity, our platform combines mass spectrometry with advanced AI to systematize, scale, and accelerate metabolomics workflows.

Role Description

Matterworks is seeking a machine learning engineer who will bring our core machine learning models to life in our microservices-based cloud platform. As the interface between software and machine learning, you will implement infrastructure and automation systems, and establish best practices for deploying ML models in the Matterworks platform.

An integral member of our engineering team, you will collaborate closely with our AI/ML researchers to operationalize models. You will bring your experience with large-scale computing, security, model optimization, monitoring, and continuous integration and deployment to provide our customers with a seamless experience.

This is a unique opportunity to advance the AI/ML technology at the core of our first-of-its-kind platform, and to contribute to the development of our digital metabolomics products from the ground up. Working closely with our multidisciplinary product development team, you will grow your technical expertise and leadership, and play a key role in delivering an innovative platform that will advance scientific research and discovery.
