Proposal Manager

Job description

“Castor is taking the life sciences space by storm with our scalable Decentralized Clinical Trial (DCT) platform and professional services. We are moving up-market into the biotech, pharma, and CRO segments, and writing formal proposals is increasingly common. We are looking for a proposal manager to connect all the dots and raise the bar as we scale!” - Rob Konterman, COO.

Who is Castor?

Castor is a leading cloud-based clinical data platform working with some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, biopharmas, and renowned academic institutes.

We simplify the clinical trial process, from recruitment to analysis, with user-friendly, patient-centric technology. Our mission is to bring medical research into the digital age. Why? Because medical research is still largely run using free-text, paper, and legacy technology.

Our self-service platform enables our users to run remote (decentralized), device-enabled, patient-centric trials. By helping our users capture high-quality data and making it machine-readable, we are fundamentally changing the flawed evidence-based medicine process.

What you’ll do

In this role, you’ll coordinate and write the response to all incoming proposal requests across various types: RFX, vendor assessments, security assessments, compliance assessments, and more. The result? Enabling Castor to drive revenue growth and customer satisfaction through high-quality and timely delivery of proposal requests. You’ll also:

  • Optimize our proposal systems, processes, and templates
  • Coordinate all incoming proposal requests
  • Write strategic proposal text yourself while continuously updating our response database
  • Provide continuous feedback to other teams on how to improve the customer journey

What you’ll bring

You are highly organized, with impeccable English communication skills, and easily collaborate with subject matter experts under strict timelines. You’ll also have:

  • Experience of working in Life Sciences (ideally eClinical SaaS), and familiarity with professional services needed to support such software
  • Strong experience writing winning proposals in life sciences (e.g., at a CRO)
  • The appetite to turn unstructured processes into an efficient and effective machine
  • Bonus: it would be great if you had a background in product or engineering

What you’ll learn

It’s a crucial time for Castor. We’re on ‘full power mode’ and scaling-up at an exponential rate. For you, the opportunities are endless:

  • To understand how Decentralized Clinical Trial (DCT) technology is changing patient lives
  • Collaborate with a talented team of experts that love to move fast and amaze our customers
  • Work with an innovative team in a fast-paced environment
  • Be involved in maximizing the impact of medical research and improving healthcare

What you’ll get

At Castor, we believe anything can be achieved with a healthy and happy team. We want to offer you some awesome benefits and the flexibility to truly succeed in your role:

  • A flexible and remote working opportunity
  • A competitive salary and a guaranteed 'happy holidays' bonus
  • Investing in our talent with a strong Employee Stock Option Plan
  • 30 days annual leave (including national holidays)
  • Interested in lifelong learning? You’ll love using our development and training budget!
  • Flexible approach to working - nobody is tracking your time except you.
  • A new MacBook or Dell laptop, we’re a tech start-up after all ;)
  • Like to feel zen? You’ll love our company subscription to Calm for meditation and yoga
