Biomensio is a biotech start-up, developing the next generation multianalyte biosensing technology platform based on our proprietary Mass Sensitive Micro Array (MSMA) sensor.  Our technology enables fully digital, rapid, and accurate multianalyte testing at the point of need.  Application areas where we have mostly worked so far include tests for Drugs of Abuse, SARS-CoV-2, and food safety.

Biomensio is a privately held company, spun off from Siemens AG and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, both continuing as owners, together with several Angel Investors.  Apart from direct equity investments we have received significant grants, e.g., under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.  We currently have two offices, in Tampere and in Espoo, Finland.

We are now looking for a highly motivated and multidisciplinary Chief Technology Officer to join our passionate team.  Your role will be crucial in aligning the development work for our sensor technology and reader devices, including microfluidic solutions.  Our Product Roadmap development and maintenance will be driven by you, also verifying, and validating the new products’ risks and costs, and creating new know-how and even IPR in the process.

We are looking for a seasoned professional in:

  • program management of complex R & D projects and rapid prototyping
  • electronics design and semiconductor development
  • continuous improvement and quality management
  • strategic business development with product focus.

Additionally, experience and interest in biotechnology, diagnostics and microfluidic technologies is a clear asset.  And for this senior role, we expect you to have good leadership and social skills, with attention to detail.

Most importantly, we are looking for the right personality and mindset!  We are a start-up operation with an exciting technology that has a huge potential in vast application areas.  We have to bring our technology and the applications to maturity, and that is not always straight forward or particularly easy.  But if you find exploring unchartered waters rewarding, in pursuit of a worthy mission, and do not mind getting your hands dirty, this team could be yours to join.

An attention to detail and eye for quality are critical to your success, along with an ability to grasp and present our product’s value proposition in a way that resonates and clearly articulates how we solve our buyers’ problems. You are obsessed with tracking performance and have the data to prove what’s working and what isn’t.

  • Understand the competitive landscape—be an expert on our competition and how they are positioned.
  • Collaborate with product management and marketing to develop product positioning and messaging that resonate with our target buyer personas.
  • Understand and document our buyer’s process, including where they get information, and the who, what, when and why behind the decisions they make. Then drive changes to our sales and marketing processes based on what you learn.
  • Develop a marketing plan for the products you support in conjunction with our sales team, including key activities and budgets to support the retention of existing customers and the acquisition of new customers.
  • Assess the effectiveness of the marketing programs that support your products on an ongoing basis, and report back to the business on required changes.
  • Plan the launches of net-new products and releases of existing products and manage the cross-functional implementation of the plan.
  • Act as the primary thought leader for the products you support externally, including speaking engagements and written works.
  • Understand and support our sales channels; train them on the problems we solve for our buyers and users; develop internal tools and external collateral and teach them how and when to use it.

Requirements

  • 7+ years of Marketing experience with at least 4 years of experience in a market-facing role (e.g. delivering presentations to customers and prospects, conducting competitor analysis and market research)
