A Swiss start-up that specialises in optical instruments and consumables for the label-free analysis of molecular interactions is looking for a Sales & Business Development Manager to cover the Central Europe area.

This is a unique opportunity to work in a small team made up of 10 people who are rapidly expanding across the European market. Ideally, they are looking for a candidate who is already based in Switzerland as they want to work closely with the sales team as well as ensure the company culture is there for everyone.

I am looking for someone who has a PhD/Masters in Biochemistry/Biophysics. No previous sales experience is necessary, just simply the drive to move out of academia and into a more commercial role.

It will be the sales of research devices to medical and pharmaceutical companies/institutes across the Central European territory but based in Zurich in order to keep the company culture as well as interact with other team members.

In addition, you will be involved in the development and implementation of regional marketing plans and strategies for customer pool expansion and management.

  • Native English speaker and fluent German would be an advantage with French as a bonus
