Job Description

The Principal role includes:

  • Leading investments in synthetic biology, health and life sciences
  • Sourcing new opportunities mainly across Europe and the US
  • Working directly with the two General Partners, embedded in a small team, allowing for a steep learning curve and significant exposure to the entrepreneurial ecosystem
  • Helping develop our brand and portfolio / founder services for biology and life sciences
  • Identifying technologies and trends that will positively impact economies and societies and represent attractive venture investment opportunities
  • Carrying out market and company due diligence on investment opportunities
  • Working with our portfolio companies to support them
  • Helping with our community management and events
  • Supporting with fund reporting and analyses

Here’s what we’d like you to bring to the table:

  • A strong understanding of and passion for life sciences (biology, medicine, or similar).
  • Several years in a biology / life science investing role
  • Self-(fire)starter — be able to run on your own, identify opportunities and prioritise without much guidance
  • The ability to clearly articulate thoughts and opinions about markets and companies, both in written and spoken form
  • Strong interpersonal skills — happy to work extensively within the team and with entrepreneurs
  • Ability to carry out market and financial analyses
  • Native (or close to) English language skills both written and oral
  • The willingness to roll up your sleeves

If you are interested in the position please send the following to team@blueyard.com:

  • Your CV
  • If applicable, a collection of links that best characterize your online presence

Our process will then be as follows:

  • After initial screening we will invite selected candidates for a video interview
  • We will then invite a limited group of candidates for personal interview with both the team and our entrepreneurs in Berlin (or remote as appropriate for health safety)
  • A decision will be made shortly thereafter
