I have been engaged by growing Biotech to recruit a IT manager to join the intimate team in the Camabridge based office.

This is a early-stage company that designs, develops and manufactures products that seek to revolutionise the way proteins are characterised. Our roots stretch back to a group of scientists who were inspired by the roles that proteins play in the biological world, driven to understand more about how proteins behave and function, but frustrated by the lack of suitable tools for protein characterisation. So they decided to invent their own.
