About the Role

We’re hiring a growth marketing lead to join our team and help us fulfill our mission of doing for proteins what Illumina has done for DNA.

We expect you to think high-level and also get in the weeds: this means setting our cross-channel strategy, overhauling our funnel, and executing and reporting on all growth marketing experiments. It also means actually writing copy, sending emails, running paid ads, coordinating conferences, etc.

We expect you to validate a channel or strategy yourself before outsourcing to an agency or hire.

About Us

Nomic was founded with the purpose of making biology easier to measure. To do this, we have untangled some of the most difficult problems in protein profiling. Our team is combining DNA nanotechnology, high-dimensional flow cytometry, laboratory automation, and machine learning to develop the world’s highest throughput proteomic platform: the nELISA.

Since spinning out of McGill University, we have partnered with and provided platform access to dozens of drug discovery groups including GSK, 4 of the top 10 pharmas, and leading biotechs.

We have recently launched a state of the art manufacturing and protein profiling facilities that enable multiplexed measurement of >2.5M samples a year, generating an effective 500M protein assays in the process.

We are building a diverse team of engineers, scientists, and world-changers. We like to break down difficult problems using a first principles approach, often leveraging the latest breakthroughs from across the scientific and technological spectrum to drive our mission forward.

About You

You’re a former biotech founder or you’ve worked in growth/marketing/bizops at a biotech startup before.

You can manage your own time well and are comfortable overseeing multiple channels. You can speak from experience running growth experiments at your past company, but you’re flexible and can change plans when ideas don’t work.

You can quickly figure out new tools + platforms, proactively ask questions when things aren’t clear, and be a friendly face to our partners and customers.

You care deeply about life science R+D teams. Maybe you were on one in grad school, maybe you’ve benefited from their findings, or maybe you just care about their contributions to humanity.

Skills & Qualifications

  • 2+ years of experience as a founder, or in growth, marketing, business development, or similar roles at a biotech company.

  • Experience with biochemistry, biology, experimental medicine, immunology, bioengineering, synthetic biology, or similar.

  • Clear, concise, writing skills. You can write informally, get to the point, and can generally follow these guidelines.

  • A track record of building and executing on projects. (Grad school projects/research count.)

  • Comfortable learning new tech on your own: it’s a good sign if you Google things you don’t know, use ChatGPT, and have used no-code tools like Zapier, Airtable, or Notion before.

  • Comfortable with basic mental math. For example, if we said an ad got 20,000 clicks, 1% of those clicks turned into signups, and 20% of those converted into customers, you’d be able to tell us how many customers we got.

  • Entrepreneurial: You’re excited about joining a small, high-growth team and contributing across all areas of marketing.

  • No ego: There’s a lot we wish we could do but don’t have time for. Must have the ability to put the most urgent priorities first, even if they aren’t glamorous.
