Product Manager

BenevolentAI, founded in 2013, creates and applies AI technologies to transform the way medicines are discovered and developed. BenevolentAI seeks to improve patients’ lives by applying technology designed to generate better data decision making and in doing so decrease drug discovery failure rates, lower drug development costs and increase the speed at which medicines are generated. The company has developed the Benevolent Platform™ - a discovery platform used by BenevolentAI scientists to find new ways to treat disease and personalise drugs for patients.

BenevolentAI is HQ’d in London with a research facility in Cambridge (UK) and further offices in New York and Antwerp. BenevolentAI has active R&D drug programmes from discovery to Phase IIb in disease areas such as ALS, Atopic dermatitis, Ulcerative Colitis and Sarcopenia.

As a Product Manager at BenevolentAI, you will play a key role in managing our AI-driven products and processes, working with world-class engineers and scientists to understand data, derive technical and user requirements and translate them into valuable products. You will play a key role in the planning and refinement of sprints, managing cross-team and third-party dependencies within an agile development environment, and you will be responsible for managing the product backlog.

Our tools use the latest technologies to derive valuable information from the integration of structured data sources and as a Product Manager you will be working closely with engineering and bioinformatics teams to develop our products in that area. The ideal candidate will have detailed technical understanding and the ability to translate user requirements into actionable engineering tasks. Additionally, you are passionate about supporting research activities while ensuring that any improvements are made available to users as fast as possible.
