Loyal is a clinical-stage veterinary medicine company.
We’re developing drugs intended to delay and reverse aging in dogs, because we believe they deserve as many happy years as we can give them.
We are hiring a Data Scientist to join the rapidly growing Computational Biology team! We are looking for someone with a strong background in statistics and/or machine learning to help drive multiple data-intensive projects forward. This is a unique opportunity to have real-world impacts much faster than is currently possible in human research, with the goal of applying what we learn to humans. You will be taking on projects ranging from sequencing alignment to image classification, and therefore need to be highly flexible, willing to learn, and always looking for opportunities to drive company goals forward. Loyal is an early stage company, which means there are no stringent hierarchies, silos, or bureaucracy. While you will be ultimately responsible for executing key projects within the team, you will have ample opportunity to work with, learn from, and influence other sides of the company.
Loyal is founded and led by a first-gen, female CEO – we encourage and look forward to diverse applicants.
How you work and think:
The Fundamentality of Health | Good health is critical to every other human (and animal!) experience. We believe health is a fundamental right and are dedicating our lives to maximizing health and developing better medicines for the worst diseases.
Truth Seeking & Feedback Loops | Uniquely in biology, there is a predetermined truth of whether a specific drug will work or not — we just have to catch up with biology! We seek out this truth and do not shy away from inconvenient truths. This holds for personal development too: we are always searching for feedback loops and embody a perpetual growth mindset.
Morality & Empathy | We are developing medicines that may one day be given to a living animal, medicines that if designed badly could hurt that animal instead of help. This is a huge responsibility and should be respected as such. Our work needs to adhere to the strictest moral code and always integrate empathy for the patient.
Transparency | We believe full transparency in thoughts, opinions, intentions, and actions (both good ones and mistakes) is a better way to build a business and work together.
Kindness | Great business(wo)men do not need to be ruthless — you can execute excellently with kindness.
Dog gifs | We love them.
