Territory Sales Manager DACH – Sales – Biotechnology – Ref.:CH110320PG

Filled Positions
  • Post Date: 18th March 2020
Job Description

Our client is a dynamic and highly innovative company that designs, develops and manufactures products that seek to revolutionise the way proteins are characterised. Their roots stretch back to a group of scientists who were inspired by the roles that proteins play in the biological world, driven to understand more about how proteins behave and function, but frustrated by the lack of suitable tools for protein characterisation. So they decided to invent their own.

Their vision is that protein science will transform our understanding of how the biological world operates in real time. They believe that this transformation will be every bit as revolutionary as the way that advances in DNA sequencing have transformed our understanding of how the biological world operates over decades, lifetimes and generations.
