We are so excited you are interested in joining our team! Candidates are encouraged to apply even if they do not tick every box. If you are excited to empower science through innovation, we want to hear from you!
Science, at its core, is the noble pursuit of understanding how things happen, why they happen and how we might gain some measure of control over what happens. At Form Bio, we’re on a quest. And our singular role in that quest is to empower our community to fulfill their scientific potential. Our software platform is purpose-built to help push the fast forward button on research, to help scientific collaboration be more collaborative and to dispense with the wholly unscientific struggles of cumbersome, DIY IT work.
We’re not here to disrupt the scientific profession, we’re here to empower it. The potential and pursuit of truth is what empowers us. Put simply, Form was created to be a breakthrough for breakthroughs.
Form Bio is expanding its marketing team and looking for an experienced Director of Product Marketing. In this position you will be playing important dual roles covering both upstream product/solutions strategy as well as downstream marketing, GTM and sales enablement tactics. The person in this position will start as a senior individual contributor, with the opportunity to hire one or more summer graduate-level interns and future potential to hire additional product marketers in step with business growth/success.
While this is a director-level position, it’s important to note that it will incorporate not just strategy-level upstream product marketing responsibilities but at least equally a high degree of direct, hands-on individual contributor work such as building presentations for sales and investor meetings, market sizing and analysis, messaging and positioning development, case study/collateral creation and a range of go-to-market tactics and management for new solutions and business initiatives.
In addition to having applicable experience in cell and gene therapy and technical product/solution marketing, the best candidate will be a well rounded thinker AND doer with the following characteristics:
Analytical. You’re data driven and able to develop and articulate a business and financial case for product/solution strategy, market selection and new business opportunities.
Athletic. You’re able to move and deliver rapidly, not letting perfection get in the way of a solid stake-in-the-ground. You can gracefully shift priorities when needed and keep pace in a rapidly changing early stage startup environment.
Artful. You may not be a designer but you’re creatively discerning and have nuanced judgment when it comes to deliverables and external packaging. You can craft compelling stories, narrative frameworks and external-ready copy around complex scientific and business topics, and you can guide outside resources on making your work visually organized and captivating.
Duties and Responsibilities
Continuously understanding and communicating to internal stakeholders what is happening around us through market intelligence gathering and competitive analysis/monitoring
Owning and continuously refining the product-level communication platform inclusive of messaging and positioning of our CGT capabilities and solutions
Proactively and responsively creating collateral and tools for sales such as slides, data sheets, battle cards, etc. (We have highly talented design resources that will help you bring copy, wireframes and other source material you create to life.)
Hands-on ownership/delivery of product and solutions content via website, offline product literature and other channels
Building and managing relationships with key analysts and influencers in and around the biopharma industry
Driving as-needed analytical exercises such as market sizing, price/revenue modeling, win/loss, pipeline analysis, campaign planning, etc.
Partnering with customer teams to develop case studies, testimonials and client reference catalog
Periodic account intelligence sprints with sales to develop presentations and other materials individually tailored to key, high-revenue-potential prospects
Recruiting, managing and mentoring product marketing interns
Required Skills and Abilities
Demonstrated familiarity with CGT and/or AAV therapeutic development
A borderline obsession with revenue, including a track record of partnering well with sales, product and executive stakeholders to drive business growth
Strong external and internal communication skills with the ability to translate complex scientific concepts into concise, compelling, digestible messages and storytelling frameworks
Nuanced conversancy in biology, drug development, AI and business that will enable you to collaborate effectively across teams and functions
The ability to roll with the fast pace and ever changing dynamics of a high growth startup
The ability and desire to roll up sleeves and drive tangible outputs and deliverables (in partnership with other team members and outside resources)
Education and Experience
Master’s degree or PhD in biology or a related field strongly preferred
MBA in marketing is a plus
A minimum of 6+ years of high-responsibility product marketing experience in a B2B software or service category - experience with a highly technical or life sciences oriented software product/solution stack strongly preferred
Demonstrated experience and familiarity with cell and gene therapy
Experience with CGT/AAV partnership programs that involve smaller biotechs and/or bigger biopharma companies strongly preferred
This position will be remote, with office access in Austin and Dallas and regular in-person all hands meetings. Occasional travel may be required for onsite events.
