MBI position in medical technology

Materiomics is looking for somebody to fill an MBI position in medical technology.


Our Bio

Materiomics is a VC backed biotech company located in Maastricht, The Netherlands. Surface structure, next to chemical composition, directs the interaction between (medical) devices and (human) cells. Based on this concept - cell behavior is guided by surface structure - Materiomics has designed surface structures to improve the performance of medical devices. Using our proprietary TopoChip technology we identified such designed surfaces to substantially augment stents, catheters, orthopedic implants and biosensors. Next to medical devices Materiomics designed topographies that can be used to improve functionality of cell culture products.

The entrepreneurial team of Materiomics is entering into the next phase of development of the company: getting the Materiomics’ topographies applied on a broad range of medical devices and cell culture ware. To ensure success in this exciting next step we are looking for a seasoned manager who adds commercial flavor to our team and ensures all business related topics are addressed properly.


The Opportunity

Our patented topographies can be applied in a broad range of applications. We have decided to focus on applications that will generate short term revenues: Commercialization of cell culture ware for pharmaceutical testing on various (human) cell types. An initial distribution agreement for these products is close to finalization. We expect you to build on this initial deal and exploit multiple other applications.
Next to that we identified fields with clear medical need to improve medical devices (biosensor implants, spinal implants, catheters) and want you to find business partners that can apply our topographies on their device. Using your business development skills we want you to come up with additional applications for Materiomics’ topographies.

You will be responsible for identifying suitable business partners, negotiating a business deal with them (license, co-development, joint-venture) for the medical device improvements and in the field of cell culture ware, and supervise the relation with the business partners during the development process of the family of cell culture ware products. In general you will be the liaison between our technology experts and the business partners.


Next to that your responsibilities include:

  • Promotion of Materiomics technology in the medical device industry

  • Build and maintain a network of key opinion leaders who support the concept of Materiomics surface topography

  • Coordination and development of promotional material and other communications for Materiomics and its technology

  • Represent Materiomics in various promotional and marketing activities

  • Make sure that financial accounting and reporting are performed properly using third parties to do the actual accounting.

    As a member of a small, committed team we expect you to give input from a business perspective in decision making. Your work location will be Maastricht (The Netherlands), but the position may require field activity in both EU and US.


Your Profile

We are looking for a pragmatic, no-nonsense self-starter, a team player who will thrive in an entrepreneurial and technology driven business environment who combines managerial and business development skills.
The successful candidate is highly driven, able to identify commercial opportunities and converts the analysis into the right steps of action. You are comfortable networking in the medical device industry but feel at home in an academic setting as well.


Our Offer

We offer a responsible, independent and challenging position in a small international team and the possibility to have a substantial stake in a technology company close to the market and high commercial potential on short and mid term. You will get the freedom to shape the company in the way you see fit.
The Materiomics’ corporate culture is characterized by respect for each individual team member and her/his contribution to our goals.
