Join the Curiox Team

USA: Southwest Regional Sales Manager

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 WashÔ 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 standardization and reproducibility.   Curiox products are used by customers performing life science research, immunology, immunotherapy, drug discovery diagnostics and cell therapy research and manufacturing.

Curiox is seeking an experienced sales professional based in the Southern California Region to sell our unique technology to customers in biotech, pharmaceutical, and life science research organizations and profitably grow Curiox’s business by finding and closing significant business opportunities for capital equipment sales. 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.
