Product Design and Development Lead
early stage biotech – radioligand therapies – targeted cancer therapeutics

  • Are you a humble achiever?
  • Are you a practical optimist?
  • Are you a compassionate team player?
  • Are you a consummate learner?
  • Are you driven by the truth and cherish transparency?
  • Are you passionate about making a difference for cancer patients?

We chose those words very carefully and while we understand that they have an inherent appeal, we ask you to examine them and think about whether you fit our description.

We are a stealth early stage biotech with multiple locations, including Oslo, Basel, and soon Cambridge (USA) – the name will change shortly! Our mission is to develop therapeutics that extend patients’ lives and also improve their quality of life. We specialize in developing targeted radioligand therapeutics and we are growing our new company with roots in the Oslo ecosystem of radiobiology, and founders with a track record of developing new therapies. We are backed by international venture capital groups with deep scientific roots who understand what it takes to develop and scale a technology to deliver new therapies.

Join us on an exciting journey in shaping our core technology platform that will power the development of all our therapeutics!

Your primary tasks
We are developing a proprietary radionuclide generator that will be core to the company strategy.  You will lead a distributed team of experts in USA and EU to design the generator using agile methodology, supported by a team of experienced medical device designers, regulatory, manufacturing, supply chain experts.

The first step will be an extensive user interface design with primary user research.  You will need to determine how the generator will be used and how it will fit in the workflows of the end users – this may also lead to business model changes.

Following this extensive design phase, you will work with regulatory and technical experts to define the rules to abide by.  The team will then have to take on the technical design phase, work on user testing, prototyping, and refinement. Ultimately you will drive the product forward to regulatory approvals, integration with industrial manufacturing lines, and commercialization.

Professional qualifications
We imagine that you have a technical background within engineering, physical sciences or life sciences with practical experience managing projects and developing new technical products for the primary use by the life science industry.
Experience in radionuclide generators and the radioligand therapeutic space is a plus.
You have extensive professional experience (at least 5 years) in project management. You are used to working in a creative environment and can bring structure at the right time and in the right manner when integrating inputs and workstreams from diverse stakeholders to ensure the goals of the project and the product are achieved.
Your communication skills in English are excellent, and you have a well-developed commercial understanding.

Personal qualifications
You possess great impact, and your professional pride and quality awareness is reflected in your results. You manage complexity and are a fast learner. As a person, you are humble and self-aware, and always focused on doing the right thing. The ideal candidate will be a highly motivated individual with interest in working in a small, entrepreneurial environment with broad responsibilities and opportunities.

Furthermore, we offer a:

  • professional management
  • varied and exciting working day in a very competent environment, characterized by interdisciplinary collaboration and short decision paths.
  • company with big growth ambitions
  • great degree of autonomy and the opportunity to create your own role
