ChemAxon is quite unique. Seriously.
Imagine it's like an agile startup, but on a larger scale. When we say flat organization, we mean it. You will have the company trust from the first day and you should be able to take your own decisions and share your feedback constantly. If you see a challenge within the organization you are empowered to change it. Everyone is supportive and eager to help anytime. You are going to have all the resources to develop your professional skills (conference budget, free books, internal training, etc). By the way, we have been building chemistry and biology related products since 1998 with clients from the top 10 pharmaceutical companies.
