Since 2002, Affygility Solutions has provided occupational
toxicology and industrial hygiene services to the biotechnology,
pharmaceutical, and medical device industry. Our services include
the Affytrac EHS management tool, OEL Fastrac
instantly-downloadable OEL/ADE/PDE monographs , online training
seminars, potent compound safety and categorization, occupational
exposure limits, toxicology services and more. We've provided these
services to pharmaceutical companies in over 65 countries. All of
the occupational toxicology and industrial hygiene professionals at
Affygility Solutions have many years of professional and hands-on
life science industry experience.
Affygility Solutions is recruiting for a Head of Growth and
Marketing to join our team. This is a 100% remote position, and the
successful applicant can work from their desired location in the
United States or Canada (Quebec only) as part of a high-performing,
globally distributed team.
While Affygility Solutions has been in business for over
eighteen years, we still respond to customer and market demands
like a startup, so are looking for people who are comfortable with
ambiguity, rapid growth, and having wide impact. This is a
leadership position and requires direct experience with managing
sales and marketing staff. In addition, we require a solid
understanding of digital B2B marketing and growth processes.
First and foremost, we're looking for people who are excited
about what we're doing—you don't need to know anything about
toxicology or the pharmaceutical industry; but should be excited to
learn. More than a specific set of skills, we're looking for
someone that (1) has the experience/work ethic to drive your own
work (2) understands that good employees do what you tell them to
do, great employees tell you what they need to do. We are
disruptors in the industry, so you'll be able to use creativity to
help us solve complex problems and amaze our customers.
Almost everyone on our team has a technical background, so this
will be our first major non-technical hire, which means you'll have
a wide range of responsibilities within marketing and growth. We've
listed a few things you'll be responsible for below, but it will
also be your job to determine which of these we should spend
resources on and which we should not. You will ultimately be in
charge of not only allocating the marketing budget, but also in
determining how large the marketing budget should be.
Scaling out the marketing and growth team
Ownership of revenue
This list is not exhaustive at all, and you'll have a lot of
autonomy over your work. Ultimately, we're looking for someone with
enough experience to tell us what we need to do to be successful —
not someone that we assign to various marketing tasks. We are
looking for a leader.
Why you might be excited about us
We're working to solve a complex regulatory problem and helping
the pharmaceutical industry be more efficient in protecting
employees and patients.
We're small, but have a large client base, so you'll be able to
contribute efficiently and without bureaucracy. You'll quickly have
responsibility over big areas of our product.
We don't have a lot of meetings. If we can effectively solve a
problem asynchronously, we do. When we do meet synchronously,
you'll always have the opportunity to contribute.
Direct communication with the CEO.
Our team has a wide range of experiences and are excited to
learn from you, too.
You'll be able to work remotely and set your own schedule. We
don't micromanage and will help you do great work.
We'll mold your role to shape a career you're excited about. We
care a ton about your satisfaction and job happiness, and we will
help prep you for whatever you're looking for in the future.
Why you might not be excited about us We're small (~12 people in
the company now), so if you like more established companies, it's
not (yet) the right time.
You'll be expected to be a leader and mentor younger/less
Since we respond to customer and market demands like an early
stage startup, projects and priorities may shift. If you can't
handle shifting priorities, this may not be the right job for
We can't provide close mentorship, as we're looking for someone
who is already a leader.
Since you'll have a lot of responsibility and creativity over
projects, they may not be defined perfectly initially.
You'll be expected to bring your own experience and perspective
to help us do the right things and raise flags if you think we
should do things differently.
About You None of these are requirements, but do describe the
kinds of people that we think would be most effective at Affygility
Solutions right now.
Are obsessed with thinking broadly and creatively about problems
and how to solve them efficiently.

Excited for a front-row seat into a fast-growing company. Things
will change a lot!
Enjoy thinking through trade-offs, with both mindfulness of
short-term needs and our long-term direction.
Know how to scale and that you're never a
single-source-of-failure. We're too small to have silos.
Prior startup accelerator program experience (Y Combinator,
Techstars, 500 Startups, etc.) a plus.
