Join the Curiox Team

USA (Remote): Director of Business Development

Curiox BioSystems is a Life Science technology company that manufactures and sells instruments, automation products, and disposables for cell and protein analysis. The major application of Curiox Laminar Wash™ systems is centrifuge-free sample preparation of cells for Flow Cytometry and other emerging cell analysis applications. The Laminar Wash instruments of MINI, HT, and AUTO address unmet needs by enabling affordable, off-the-shelf automation of the current, labor-intensive cell analysis process and thereby improving standardization and reproducibility.   Curiox products are used by customers performing life science research, immunology, immunotherapy, drug discovery diagnostics, vaccine research, and cell therapy research and manufacturing.

Curiox is seeking an experienced business professional to lead our Business Development efforts in B2B and KOL Collaborations throughout biotech, pharmaceutical, academic organizations.  The broad application possibilities of Laminar Wash will require this position to conduct market research to identify the most relevant applications and customer segments that will lead to the highest sales growth and adoption.  This will then require a plan to identify business partners and key opinion leaders to develop relationships with and secure partnerships and collaborations to advance our applications and exposure.  Candidates are encouraged to apply who have the motivation, experience, and skills to work in a startup culture and will lead Curiox’s rapid expansion to levels that exceed expectations.

“There’s this thought among scientists that the only way to prepare suspension cells for analysis is to use centrifugation. Curiox has invented a better way to prepare samples. One that’s good for cells is also good for scientists. We believe sample preparation can be affordable, have a good workflow, be less labor-intensive and reproducible. That’s why we’ve created Laminar Wash technology to help scientists prepare samples in a way that treats their cells gently so as not to introduce further variables into important experiments. If you’re ready to help scientists get better results and break them out of their entrenched ways of sample preparation, Curiox is the right place for you.”
