Job Description:

The Position

Veracyte is a leading genomic diagnostics company that improves patient care by providing answers to clinical questions that inform diagnosis and treatment decisions without the need for costly, risky surgeries that are often unnecessary. The company's products uniquely combine RNA whole-transcriptome sequencing and machine learning to deliver results that give patients and physicians a clear path forward. Since its founding in 2008, Veracyte has commercialized seven genomic tests and is transforming the diagnosis of thyroid cancer, lung cancer and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Veracyte has made strategic acquisitions to expand test offerings in breast cancer and a distributed platform.

Due to our success and continued growth, we have an exciting opportunity for a Project Manager to join the Veracyte team. The Project Manager is responsible for the coordinated management of multiple diagnostic product development projects or business processes. He/she is responsible for monitoring cost, schedule, and technical performance of multiple projects and operations, while working to ensure the ultimate success of the projects and the overall program.

The Project Manager works directly with our Director of Project Management and project Core Teams to provide the direction and coordination of activities to ensure that project goals are accomplished within the prescribed time frame and within the project budget. To accomplish this, the Project Manager will:

  • Coordinate new project initiation through the Product Strategy Team and be responsible for stakeholder management including Core Team Members, Executives, and other major stakeholders to translate the strategic plan and corporate goals into Project team objectives and milestones.
  • Lead Project Teams from product concept to product launch including all related analyses, communication and administrative tasks. Perform project analysis such as preparing and publishing monthly project dashboards. Provide direction and coordination of activities to ensure that project goals are accomplished within the prescribed time frame and within the project budget.
  • Facilitate/lead all core team meetings, executive level meetings and sub-team meetings; guiding the team regarding prioritization of activities, business, quality and regulatory risks/considerations and conformance to the Business Planning, Product Development and Design Control process.
  • Manage resources and prioritization at the program level. Monitor cost, schedule, and technical performance of multiple projects and operations, while working to ensure the ultimate success of the projects and the overall program.
  • Lead Sustaining Project Team(s).

Who You Are:

You hold a BS or BA degree and have at least six years of additional experience or a MS with three years of additional experience (all within the applicable field, preferably Biological or Chemical Sciences, Quality Assurance, Regulatory or Clinical Affairs). Ideally you have a certification in project management as well.

You have participated on the cross-functional development team for at least three products of which you were the leader for at least one.

Your previous work experience includes five years in an IVD setting and seven years of experience in product development according to design controls. You have the necessary IVD Regulatory and Quality Systems experience to guide Diagnostic Test Development to meet FDA IVD and GMP standards yet could tailor programs to less stringent CLIA standards, as timelines and priorities dictate.

Previous stakeholders attest to your ability to effectively communicate at all levels of the organization (both technical and non-technical), identify areas for escalations and establish professional relationships to encourage and foster cross-functional discussions which help achieve the company's goals.

You've demonstrated the ability to analyze data and create tables, graphs and figures utilizing MS Excel, PowerPoint, Visio and MS Project to create project plans and timelines and to communicate ideas and project results both orally and in writing with a high degree of clarity and accuracy, including project dashboards, slide presentations, and documentation deliverables.
