The foundation is run by a group of six trustees with backgrounds in technology, medicine and venture capital.

Your responsibilities - Join the core team in a leadership position and as the first non-founder employee - Deep dive and take responsibility in a wide range of topics (we’re currently building a research facility in - Zurich, starting a “customer-facing” brand/subsidiary, establishing research partnerships and much more) - Be actively involved in fundraising - In a nutshell, you are co-responsible (together with the President of the Board / CEO) for all topics that help us grow, advance the sector and build a scalable and professional organization.

What do we offer? This position is not a simple, ordinary job.

As with similar topics, this has up- and down sides. It will require more work and gratification will be quite a bit down the line. On the other hand, you will work on a bleeding-edge topic that fundamentally challenges the status quo (and by an order of magnitude more than other companies that say the same).

We are building the first professional and scalable organization is the biostasis / cryopreservation space with a strong focus on science and medical quality. Our offer is for you to be a part of that.
