Sable Systems International

As a Product Manager in the life sciences industry, you are proud of what you have learned and continue to learn. Your alignment of strategy and discipline to project/product management has accelerated agile product development, motivated your sales and marketing teams, and brought your company a return on investment. Given such success, however, if you have asked yourself if this is the right scientific or industry path that makes a long-term fit for you, you may be the perfect candidate for Sable Systems International. 

Sable Systems International seeks an experienced Product Manager to own the communication process from Voice of the Customer, through the Sable Quality processes of research and development, and eventual launch to technical sales and marketing. This will involve the prioritization of a surging innovative product pipeline for our two current product lines. It will also involve the launch of a new Product Line to a new series of personalized healthcare markets. The future is rich in ideas. Yet, as we have seen over the last 18 months, translatable science depends on getting better tools more quickly into the hands of innovative researchers focused on integrative organismal science. Sable Systems is a company by scientists, for scientists, and is the authoritative expert in metabolic measurement from cleanroom microbiota studies to fly to mouse to man and beyond. Sable provides the instrumentation, software, and analytical products for basic, pre-clinical, and translational researchers in academia, biomedical and pharmaceutical research. 

The person we are looking for is persistent, a confident negotiator, and a consummate pathfinder. If there is a way to make things work through communicating specifications or expectations clearly, you will find that way. And, you have the track record to show for it. As for the way things work, you have an affinity for technical tools and an interest to learn and understand complex systems. Above all, you love to get out into the lab, and the field to engage with those who can share their pressing scientific needs so that, together we can make a leading and continual contribution to better science and personalized access to data that could transform the lives of researchers. 

Compensation depends on experience.

Health, Dental, Life Insurance, 401k, Long Term Disability, and other great benefits
