Job Description
Med Device Marketing – US Launch

A highly profitable Medical Device company in the San Francisco Bay Area is preparing for product launches in the cardiovascular space and adding new marketing professionals to their commercial team. Their portfolio of products includes first-in-class devices and global leading products in the space. This role will have a significant impact on the long-term success of the organization and will require significant leadership and routine interaction with the executive team. This is a dynamic, exciting work environment with high internal and external visibility.

The Opportunity:

You will be responsible for developing marketing plans and activities to strategically position a global market leader in the US vascular market within a competitive arena. This role focuses on downstream, customer-facing marketing including dissecting clinical data, creating marketing messaging and supporting the sales force with creative ideas. Duties include product positioning, branding and messaging as well as KOL development for podium presence and publications. This is a broadly defined assignment that will also include budgeting, forecasting, sales training, medical education programming, and extensive analytics, so we need someone who is comfortable “wearing many hats.”

There is a large project management component to the role, and excellent communication skills are required, including written, oral and presentation skills. Their new technology is clinically superior to competitive brands, so your challenge will be to create awareness and expand the market, rather than shifting market share. You will work closely with Key Opinion Leaders in the cardiology and vascular community to develop them as advocates for new technology, plan and implement Advisory Boards, and manage medical education and trade show programming. They are organized in a matrix structure and you will serve as the commercial leader on cross-functional teams with colleagues from product development, sales, finance, regulatory, operations, and medical affairs. Their rapidly expanding organization means there are significant opportunities for career development and advancement. Overnight travel is estimated at 20%.

Qualifications:

The successful candidate will have the following qualities:

• 4+ years of total Medical Technology industry experience
• 3+ years of in-house marketing experience in the Medical Device business
• Evidence of successful product launch experience
• A Bachelor’s Degree or better is required; as is an MBA or similar advanced degree

The industry-leading compensation plan includes base salary plus annual bonus and long-term incentives along with a generous corporate benefits package.

This position will be based in the San Francisco Bay Area (South Bay). Financial assistance is available for relocation support.

This is an entrepreneurial opportunity with a dynamic company that prides itself on the unique, differentiated qualities of its product offerings.
