Immediate Job Opening


Scientific Programmer


July 27, 2021


What we do:

Early Charm creates, owns, and operates businesses that convert science into revenue.

We are the management team, the operators, and the entrepreneurs. We do not write checks and just pop in for board meetings. We show up to our labs, our production facilities, and our offices every day to do all the heavy lifting in our portfolio companies.

Our scientists and engineers work across our entire portfolio, never just one venture. This brings extraordinary expertise to the earliest stages of product development. The lack of silos fosters creativity and attracts the most collaborative people.

Similarly, our sales & marketing team works across our portfolio enabling us to have the voice of customers heard early and often as we consider product development. Add in our experts in law, intellectual property, accounting, finance, licensing, purchasing and more to get the complete team to build our businesses.


What you will do:

You will work primarily with our companies selling computational drug design software. Our companies have well developed, scientifically validated algorithms that model proteins in complex virtual environments. Our customers use these models to design molecules that efficiently and selectively interact with the proteins. Interfering with the actions of proteins is the most common way that therapeutic drugs function.

We have an exceptional team of computational chemists and a recurring customer base. You will work closely with both while maintaining and developing applications related to various computational chemistry and cheminformatics tasks. The technologies used in our existing application are based on C++ and Python.


What you need to be successful:

A deep understanding of C++ and Python is required, as is an advanced understanding of chemistry (preferred) or physics. Experience in computational drug design would help as would having familiarity with GPU programming.


What we will do for you:

Career development is our top priority for you. While we love the idea of people joining Early Charm forever, we are realistic to understand that we may be a steppingstone to other opportunities or a way for you to explore career options. Regardless of your reasons for joining us, our commitment is to help you.


Where you will work:

We are at the center of the entrepreneurial renaissance of Baltimore giving you the opportunity to interact with some of the nation’s most exciting technology companies. Located at 1100 Wicomico Street, our labs, production space and offices are intermingled with firms doing engineering design, software development, specialty textiles, 3D printing, and so much more. There is even a brewery.

Early Charm is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
