Who Are We?

Enzymit is a cutting-edge computational protein design company developing a novel platform for enzyme design.

Traditional chemical production is expensive and environmentally destructive.

Living organisms have been producing many types of substances with close to zero pollution and with incredible efficiency.

Through the use of sophisticated computational tools, we are harnessing life’s molecular machines to transform traditional chemical production

Our enzymes enable the production of materials that were considered unattainable by traditional chemistry.

Our technology combines computational biophysical models with statistical and machine learning approaches enabling us to design novel enzymes. We build and deploy these computational modules using a scalable cloud computing infrastructure and complement their predictions with results from our proprietary high-throughput experimental screening platform. We utilize advanced computing architectures based on high-performance GPUs and investigate novel methodologies in biophysical modeling and deep neural networks.

We are a seed-stage company and have raised its seed round of USD $5M led by top-tier investors.

We’re looking for a Computational structural biologist to join our team in Ness-Ziona (Israel). You should join us if you want to learn and help develop state-of-the-art techniques for discovering structure-guided insights into enzymes. You will interface with Enzymit's core team of computer scientists and experimental biologists as well as our external partners.
