We are seeking a talented, high energy, tech savvy, self-motivated biomedical engineer to join our startup biotech company.

After successful completion of the project, the applicant will be considered for a permanent role and then eligible for a myriad of benefits in exchange for long-term commitment to a startup company.

With ongoing fundraising activities, we expect our hiring needs to increase in kind.
