We believe it’s possible to have a profound impact on bending the cost curve in healthcare by building a pipeline of innovative medicines and bringing them to market at dramatically lower prices.

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 attract, engage, and recruit top talent to EQRx to help build and grow our payer, provider and patient access organization. You will partner with hiring managers in the functional areas you support beyond just being an “order taker” for hires. You will advise, strategize, and work with hiring leadership on attraction and engagement strategies that go way beyond “post and pray” tactics. You will have a strong pulse on the healthcare talent landscape. You will be part of talent branding initiatives and maintain an active and engaged presence on platforms like LinkedIn. You will review, assess, and recommend top caliber candidates to be interviewed and ensure a white glove candidate experience for everyone you engage with – whether we hire them or not. In short - this is a unique opportunity to get in early with a high growth, early stage company in a very impactful and visible Talent Acquisition role. We are looking for someone who has the desire to push what’s possible in recruiting. If you have been in a recruiter role and have always wanted the opportunity to work in an environment where there is a real desire to turn recruiting as we know it on its ear - this could be the job for you. 

The Impact You Will Have

You will play a significant role in the growth of our company. We know we are only as good as the people we work with, and you will play a big part in ensuring we have the best talent to help us in our goal of bringing affordable medicines to patients who need them. You will have a highly visible impact on our growth and ability to scale on a global level. You will work in a different model than what is considered a traditional TA department – one that is highly candidate centric, socially visible, empathetic, always pushing what is possible and – most importantly –  understands recruiting should never be about putting “butts in seats”.  You will be a part of a team that NEVER treats hiring someone as a transaction. You will work a process that treats the candidate experience in the manner you would want to experience yourself.
