Rasio Therapeutics' parent company, Early Charm, has a job opening to work with Rasio Therapeutics and other companies in its Drug Design Portfolio: Business Development and Technical Sales for Drug Design Companies
What Early Charm does:
Early Charm creates, owns, and operates businesses that convert science into revenue. We are the management team, the operators, and the entrepreneurs. We do not write checks and just pop in for board meetings. We show up to our labs, our production facilities, and our offices every day to do all the heavy lifting in our portfolio companies.
Our scientists and engineers work across our entire portfolio, never just one venture. This brings extraordinary expertise to the earliest stages of product development. The lack of silos fosters creativity and attracts the most collaborative people.
Similarly, our sales & marketing team works across our portfolio enabling us to have the voice of customers heard early and often as we consider product development. Add in our experts in law, intellectual property, accounting, finance, licensing, purchasing and more to get the complete team to build our businesses.
What you will do:
You will work primarily with the companies in our Drug Design Portfolio. These include:
• Rasio Therapeutics designs and develops small molecules for hard to target proteins in oncology applications.
• SilcsBio sells drug design software to the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and drug design services to a wide range of venture capital backed drug development companies.• Revolve Biotechnologies sells custom DNA variant libraries and high-affinity antibodies produced from its unique protein & nucleic acid evolution platform.
• ComputChem provides covalent bonding drug design services using physics based computational models.
• Geminus is developing a small molecule therapeutic that amplifies the effectiveness of other oncology drugs in the treatment of leukemia and potentially other cancers.
For our companies with product and service revenue, you will work closely with our existing and potential customers as their primary point of contact. This technical sales role is the most important part of selling and servicing our drug design customers as it builds their trust in our technology. You will talk technical and business with customers, coordinate with our senior scientists and engineers when there are big technical challenges, coordinate with our director of sales and marketing on business terms and interact with our back-office team on billing.
For our drug development companies, you will take on the business development role. With a focus on raising money through both equity financing and non-dilutive funding, you will be pitching the companies to investors, talking with strategic partners, working with our grants team to submit for non-dilutive funding and putting together plans related to all that.
You will also get to work with Early Charm’s largest investor and six early-stage venture capital funds on technology scouting at Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland. Working with all the fund managers, you will play a key role in helping launch and seed life science companies in Baltimore.
What you need to be successful:
You will need a diverse understanding of biology, especially as it relates to drug design and development. A fantastic ability to talk with people in a manner that engages them along with the ability to explain complex technical information to seasoned scientists and lay persons at an appropriate level. Having a strong understanding of biopharma businesses would be ideal.
What we will do for you:
Career development is our top priority for you. You will learn from our senior business team and our lead scientists. You will expand your network around the world through building close relationships with our customers. You will get to see a wide range of deal flow through the eyes of seasoned venture capitalists. Your long-term success is our success.
Where you will work:
We are at the center of the entrepreneurial renaissance of Baltimore giving you the opportunity to interact with some of the nation’s most exciting technology companies. Located at 1100 Wicomico Street, our labs, production space and offices are intermingled with firms doing engineering design, software development, specialty textiles, 3D printing, and so much more. There is even a brewery.
