Senior Manager, US Metabolics Marketing – Rare Disease

My client, a global, publicly traded, rare disease division of a larger pharma company, is based in Boston MA.  They combine groundbreaking science with a steadfast commitment to meeting the needs of patients living with severe, life-threatening, and often ultra-rare diseases. The company’s scientists are among the first in the world to unlock the therapeutic potential of inhibiting terminal complement, a group of that play an important role in the body's immune response and can destroy healthy tissue in certain patients.  They are driven by the following values:  Find Answers, Change the World, and Create a Legacy.

This patient-centric organization offers a collaborative culture of like-minded individuals gathered around a common goal. Smart, driven, high-performing colleagues for you to partner with!  Some opportunities happen only once in a lifetime – like a job where you can make a real difference!

They have the best of both worlds at this organization…the autonomy to be the experts in the field that they are, but also the backing and resources of large pharma to support them.  They have a solid rare disease pipeline with 8-10 launches anticipated in the next couple of years!
