The Company

BenevolentAI unites technology with human intelligence to re-engineer drug discovery and deliver life-changing medicines. We have developed the Benevolent Platform®, a drug discovery platform built on powerful data foundations with state of the art machine learning and AI technology. Our technology empowers scientists to decipher the vast and complex code underlying human biology, find new ways to treat disease and personalise medicines to patients. Benevolent has active in-house R&D drug programmes in disease areas such as neurodegeneration, immunology, oncology and inflammation and has research and commercial collaborations with leading pharmaceutical and research organisations. The company is headquartered in London with a research facility in Cambridge (UK) and a further office in New York.

Who we are

We are an eclectic bunch at Benevolent, united by our belief that innovative thinking and purposeful technology can truly change outcomes for the better. Our mission is to re-engineer drug discovery and deliver life-changing medicines for patients in need and we do this by applying AI, machine learning and other advanced technologies to reinvent the ways drugs are discovered and developed. We strive to bring together unique skills and perspectives across biology, chemistry, engineering, AI research, informatics, precision medicine and drug discovery.

The Role

We are looking for Product Managers who are excellent communicators and have a proven track record of working in agile environments and cross-functional teams. As a Product Manager at BenevolentAI, you will play a key role in managing our 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 a range of individuals, including engineering, bioinformatics, design and drug discovery to develop our products.

The ideal candidate will have the ability to understand complex technical detail and translate user needs into product requirements and actionable engineering tasks. Additionally, they will be passionate about supporting research activities whilst ensuring that their product fulfils the specified use cases, and works as part of the drug discovery workflow.

  • Play a role in defining and implementing an effective product management process that can scale as the business continues to grow.
  • Utilise design thinking and user-centric approaches to product development.

We are looking for someone with

  • Minimum BSc in a relevant field (e.g. bioinformatics, life sciences, bioengineering). Master’s or PhD preferred.
  • Experience in life sciences, bioinformatics, genomics, or biology.
  • Experience with AI products and/or familiarity with the drug development process is a plus
  • Previous Product Management experience in a commercial and agile environment – ideally some experience within a product-centric software company
  • Demonstrated experience managing the full life cycle of a product end-to-end
  • Ability to prioritise, organise, and communicate effectively across diverse teams
  • Demonstrated leadership in defining scope, functionality, and refining specification
  • Exceptional communication skills and the ability to bring together differing profiles to work towards a common goal

The Product Manager role for user-facing products (3) requires prior experience in conducting user research and working closely with design to create front end products; experience in managing products used to visualise data and analytics is a plus.
