Company Overview:
Axion BioSystems is a life science tools company located in Atlanta, GA. At Axion, we build flexible products that keep pace with today’s research, while striving to test the limits of one’s imagination. We initially launched the first commercial multi-well microelectrode array (MEA) system, the Maestro™ in 2012. Over the past 10 years, we have developed a steady pipeline of innovative, industry-leading products that increase throughput, functionality, and information for industrial and academic research. Today, Axion is a leading manufacturer of bioelectronic assay systems used to evaluate the biology of cells, including neurons, cardiomyocytes, cancer cells, immune cells, and more. Axion’s products are actively used by pharmaceutical and biotech companies, governmental agencies, and universities in ground-breaking research for applications such as cancer immunotherapy, drug discovery and development, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiac safety.

Position Overview:
We are currently seeking a motivated person comfortable with science and skilled at product management to join Axion’s Commercial Team. Specifically, you will be a member of the Product Management Team within the broader Marketing Team.

As Product Manager for Impedance Assay Systems, you will guide product development and commercialization of Axion’s impedance assay systems. This extends from increasing the applicability of the existing systems and consumables, to developing new products or applications for the company. You will help build products from existing ideas, and help to develop new ideas based on your experience and contact with customers. You must enjoy spending time with customers to understand their problems and find innovative solutions for the broader market.

You must be able to communicate with all areas of the company. You will work with engineering counterparts to define the product’s technical requirements.

You will also serve as the internal and external evangelist for the product offering, working with the sales channel and key customers. A product manager’s key role is strategic, but you will be tasked with supporting tactical execution to ensure successful market penetration and alignment with our defined strategy. Applicants should be comfortable taking on additional roles within a fast-paced, performance-driven environment.
