Robert Forrester CXO

EQRx believes responsibility can be revolutionary. Want to make a difference while advancing your career? Come join a team that is working towards our bold mission of developing innovative medicines at radically low prices to help people get the medicines they need.

What You'll Do

You will architect the storage and organization of data for a modern, data-driven and digital-native life sciences company, from drug and molecule development, to the clinic and patient data, to drug pricing and management, integrating across numerous data types and modalities. You will develop data infrastructure to support data science, analytics, and visualization uniting data across disparate sources and scales, from small ad hoc datasets to million+ patient claims and EHR datasets. Using state of the art tools and ontologies, you will design and build strategies for the integration of datasets across different clinical database systems and ontologies.


You will create consistent, testable, and reproducible processes for the ingestion, transformation, alignment, and storage of partner datasets as EQRx grows its programs and payor/provider partnerships by an order of magnitude, operating at scale. You will support the scaling, versioning, and usage of data science and machine learning to produce insights form data. You will lead and grow the data

The Impact You'll Have

You will help build a novel model of life sciences company, where data is stored and integrated across functions, informing every process from the beginning. This role will enable radically cheaper and more accessible medicines by connecting and integrating data sources that map the complex web of interrelationships that bring drugs to patients and empowering experts to explore them. The Principal Data Architect/Engineer will speed the development and trialing of novel medicines by bringing a digital and data native technology stack to drug development. This person will enable experts across EQRx to see further, connecting data from biology and chemistry, to the clinic and patients, to drug pricing and delivery, powering a modern, and radically new paradigm in drug development.

Who You Are

  • You are an excellent communicator, empathetic with end users and internal customers. 

Are you bold enough?

Your work should matter and allow you the freedom to be 100% you. We spend too much time and effort in our career to not feel excited and proud about what we do and who we do it with.
