Business Development - Real World Evidence


The Business Development team is responsible for identifying and driving key business opportunities at Flatiron. We are hiring for people who will not only develop new strategies to accelerate Flatiron’s growth, but will also drive their execution to deliver results. This role in particular will focus on initiatives to accelerate our work on observational research, often through external collaborations/strategic partnerships with organizations in the oncology industry. These partnerships could focus on product integrations with other companies’ products, bringing new products to market with a partner (e.g., developing a joint clinico-genomic data product with Foundation Medicine), or otherwise increasing the value of Flatiron products to our customers across the oncology industry.

In this role, you’ll work cross-functionally with Flatiron teams, including product, sales, marketing, oncology, legal, and finance to launch partnerships that help Flatiron realize our mission of dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research in cancer. Working in a fast-paced and rapidly growing business, you will be consistently challenged and are expected to learn quickly from your brilliant cross-functional team mates as you make an impact on cancer care together.
