Boston, MA, USA · Remote
Posted on Wednesday, January 10, 2024
Our mission at Asimov is to advance humanity's ability to design living systems, enabling biotechnologies with outsized benefit to society. We're developing a mammalian synthetic biology platform––from cells to software––to enable the design and manufacture of next-generation therapeutics.
We’re searching for a Business Development Associate to join our Commercial team. As a Business Development Associate, you’ll be responsible for building market awareness of Asimov and driving new business for the company. You’ll be able to grow into a business development role at a nimble, forward-thinking synthetic biology startup with a global reach. This is an opportunity to help build the future of biological engineering.

About the Role:

  • Drive revenue growth: Actively source and secure business opportunities with biopharma companies of varying sizes, ranging from virtual to top pharmas. Your goal is to drive significant revenue growth through these engagements.
  • Manage customer relationships: Play a key role in nurturing and maintaining relationships with clients throughout the entire partnership lifecycle, ensuring ongoing satisfaction and engagement.
  • Communicate value proposition: Effectively convey the technical and commercial benefits of our offerings to potential clients.
  • Structure deals: Work closely with the broader commercial team to develop deal structures that maximize value for all parties involved, both within our organization and for our external stakeholders.
  • Engage with industry: Represent the company at industry conferences, both through attendance and exhibition, to network and promote our services.

About You:

  • Professional experience: At least 3 years of experience in a business development or sales role, specifically within the B2B biopharmaceutical tools sector.
  • Industry knowledge: A deep understanding of the therapeutics biomanufacturing landscape.
  • Networking skills: A robust and expanding network within the biopharma services and tools market.
  • Customer relationship expertise: Proven track record of managing long-term relationships with clients.
  • Technical familiarity: Knowledge of cell line development and upstream process development for biologics and/or viral vectors.
  • Educational background: An MBA or Master's degree is preferred. Alternatively, a Bachelor's degree in Life Sciences coupled with relevant experience will be considered.
We're fueled by a vision to transform biological engineering into a fully-fledged engineering discipline. Should you join our team, you will grow with a constantly evolving organization and push the frontiers of synthetic biology. Company culture is key to Asimov, and ours is a culture of recombination; we believe that our mission can only be achieved by bringing together a diverse team with a mixture of backgrounds and perspectives.
