Chief Financial Officer

Chief Financial Officer

Cambridge biotech startup is looking for Chief Financial Officer. In this role you will be the executive responsible for our funding and grant applications as well as investor relations and company filings. It is a unique opportunity to join the multi-billion biotech scene in Cambridge right at the top with minimal science knowledge pre-requisites. Small company size ensures friendly atmosphere and gives you a lot of freedom and flexibility as to how and when you work.

You will have a rare opportunity to grow with the company assuming more and more responsibility as time goes by. As the number of employees increases you may find yourself managing a large number of individuals which would otherwise be unachievable for recent graduates.

You need to have experience in finance, preferably in startup context, as well as polished pitching skills and a clear ability to identify funding and investment sources. You should be able to write and submit grant applications with a high dose of independence. We particularly invite applications from native speakers of Mandarin Chinese but it is not a requirement. Native speakers of other major languages including English, Brasilian Portuguese and Russian will also be in an advantaged position. MBA is welcome but not necessary.

You need to be characterised by positive attitude, optimism, determination to succeed and have a clear long-term vision of your career in our company. Patience with people and machines alike is essential. Lone working and accidental long-hours should not be a problem for you.

We value diversity and believe in equal opportunities. Women are particularly welcome to apply.

You will enjoy attractive equity package as well as a generous bonus system linked to company performance.
