About The Role
We are looking for an outstanding individual to join our Program Management group. This is a small and effective group of project managers who help our teams work quickly and effectively to solve tough challenges. You will work on project teams with biologists, computational biologists, chemists, engineers, and software engineers who are developing truly new products. Our products have allowed researchers to study biology at unprecedented resolution and scale, yielding insights in diverse fields such as cancer biology, immunology, neuroscience, and developmental biology.
As a 10x project manager, you will be on high-energy, cross-functional teams that are developing important new products including assay panels / biological content for RNA transcripts and proteins. This position is part of a new program at 10x to develop applications-based, targeted panels that span multiple products. You will be the person who brings to the teams a strong background in both R&D project management and development of targeted panels. You will partner closely with the technical and marketing leads to make sure that the priorities, risks, resources, and schedule are established, managed, and adjusted when necessary. You will use your solid technical background and your prioritization skills to guide team conversations about the scope of the work being done and potential paths. Your strong communication skills will help keep everyone on the same page and make sure everyone is heard. Of course, as a project manager by nature, your excellent organizational skills will assure that nothing falls through the cracks or is missed.
You will also be the project team member responsible for knowing the 10x product development process by heart, and making sure the process works for the team. As part of the program management group, you have a home-base of fun colleagues that you can learn from and also bring new ideas to. You will sync with them on issues and tips in meetings and through impromptu messaging. Each problem is new, but the themes are eternal, so we have a lot of momentum for doing things well.
