Company: Recursion
Location: Salt Lake City
Posted on: January 15, 2022

Job Description:

Start with an insight. Not just an idea, but a real insight. Eight years ago, PhD candidate Chris Gibson and some fellow researchers came up with the idea to cross-pollinate machine learning with drug discovery using microscopy images. The combination immediately proved useful in spotting compounds people had overlooked, making it clear that this wasn't just an incremental idea, but a true insight into drug discovery. Recursion has been purpose-built to do things that have quite literally never been done before. And while we have resources and an amazing lab, the secret sauce is our people. They are the ones who make big bets and deal in orders of magnitude instead of thinking incrementally, and the result is clear: Six years ago, we were doing plate manufacturing by hand. Today, we are able to process and scan more than a million experiments every week. That's a large and experiment processing pipeline! But even with over 1 billion microscopy images taken to date, we aren't satisfied yet. We are staying bold and hungry, as we continue to scale and complexity of the machine-learning-optimized experiments run on our automated robotics platform. This is where you come in. As Associate Director of Product Management, your customer isn't a mass audience of "average" users, but Recursion's mission to decode biology itself. How do we continue to industrialize the drug discovery process, growing in scale and experimental complexity, while also focusing deeply on data relatability and insight quality. You'll push yourself as you lead some of the smartest people in data science, biology, chemistry and biotech, finding new ways to do your best collective work. - Recursion is heaven for a scientific product manager, a place where you can think big. If you see this kind of approach as freeing and exciting rather than daunting, read on. The Impact You'll Make You will help manage the development of the world's leading tech-enabled drug discovery platform. In particular, you will:

  • Build and execute on a cohesive product approach to scale automated experiment execution and analysis workflows for novel biology and chemistry experiments.
  • Guide groups of product managers accountable for automation, scaling and insight generation for growing and new high throughput experiment platforms.
  • Amplify the capabilities of cross-disciplinary teams of software engineers, data scientists, machine learning engineers, drug discovery biologists and chemists, and automation robotics scientists, including through dissemination of a product vision, data consumption use cases, roadmaps, and technical product requirement. The Team You'll Join - Recursion's Product team translates company-level strategy into specific internal development projects and capabilities. We decide what to build and express the why, while supporting builders to manage the how. We focus our decisions on the long-term impact that the new capabilities have on our in-house drug discovery programs. Join us to guide the development of the industry's first truly industrialized drug discovery engine. - The Experience You'll Need
    • Leadership experience in a large scale data application involving novel technical or scientific capabilities or use cases
    • 5+ years of industry experience in product management or similar practice in areas such as strategy, planning, prioritizing, communication, building, implementation, and engaging users and stakeholder
      • Experience guiding teams of product managers and builders
      • Track record of delivering bold, novel solutions for complex initiatives -
      • Understand how to translate between experts in engineering, data science and the natural sciences (e.g. biology, chemistry) to identify business needs and find solutions
      • Lifelong learner with a creative, collaborative approach - The Values That We Hope You Share
        • We Care : We care about our drug candidates, our Recursionauts, their families, each other, our communities, the patients we aim to serve and their loved ones. We also care about our work.
        • We Learn : Learning from the diverse perspectives of our fellow Recursionauts, and from failure, is an essential part of how we make progress.
        • We Deliver : We are unapologetic that our expectations for delivery are extraordinarily high. There is urgency to our existence. The deep caring for our people is an enabler for them to rise to these expectations.
        • Act Boldly with Integrity : No company changes the world or reinvents an industry without being bold. It must be balanced; not by timidity, but by doing the right thing even when no one is looking.
        • We are One Recursion : We operate with a 'company first, functions second' mentality. Our success comes from working as one interdisciplinary team.
