Job Description


Business Development Managers work directly with clients to craft customized solutions using Seven Bridges’ platform and expertise. You become an expert on a select group of target clients and, more importantly, the problems those clients face in delivering the next decade of precision medicine. To do so, you engage with the teams on the front lines of these organizations -- the teams charged with delivering serious advances in therapies. These include bioinformaticians, directors, and even internal IT organization leaders.  As such, there is no such thing as “news” about a target organization at Seven Bridges -- we get scoops ahead of time.

In addition, you work with internal and external groups to tell the Seven Bridges story to wider audiences. This may include speaking on behalf of the company, crafting proposals, or even working with policymakers to shape regulation.

Ultimately, you are responsible for building and sustaining relationships with key stakeholders for the company, which results in winning business. In addition, you steer projects identified as top priorities, employing strategy and strong interpersonal acumen.


  • Maintain complete, current knowledge of target organizations including their current therapeutic pipeline, organizational chart, purchasing and procurement preferences, financials, public statements, etc.
  • Develop relationships with current and potential clients, specifically with those that are doing the analytical work.
  • Work directly with current and potential clients to understand the fundamental challenges of their businesses.

  • Exceed revenue targets.


  • Education: BA/BS from top university or equivalent experience; advanced degree in genomics or related field is preferred; MBA from a top program or experience in top-tier consulting firm is strongly preferred

As a result each Manager will have deep expertise in at least one of the following fields: Drug development, regulatory approvals processes for therapeutics, bioinformatics, genomics, enterprise sales, investment banking, private equity, public policy
  • Skills/Abilities: Deep analytical experience, consulting, familiarity with how large organizations operate, emotional intelligence
