Job Description:

 An expanding startup company is looking for a dedicated and analytical VP of Commercial – Science to join a new Wastewater Epidemiology product offering (and other potential business opportunities).

The COVID-19 pandemic underscored a global need for comprehensive pathogen testing, analysis, and action. Going beyond existing tools (such as individual COVID or opioid testing), wastewater monitoring can dramatically expand the ability of public health officials, institutional facility operators, and real estate owners and managers to understand and respond to existing and emerging health threats in an economically viable way. This presents an opportunity to develop a unique offering to limit the spread of illness, protect human health, and minimize business risk/disruption with unique capabilities in strategy and planning, testing, and analysis, in service to government, institutional, and real estate customers.

The VP Commercial – Science responsibilities include developing commercial feasibility of wastewater testing program, including understanding customer interests and priorities and the science behind the program.  Additional general responsibilities include overseeing the daily sales activities, meeting with major clients, writing sales reports, designing effective sales strategies, and marketing company products and services.

To be successful as a VP of Commercial – Science, you should have good leadership skills and the ability to drive company success. Additionally, due to the scientific focus of this role, the right candidate should have a commercial and sales skillset and experience but should also have a background in science (i.e., microbiology, epidemiology, etc.)  Ultimately, a top-notch VP of Commercial – Science should have an in-depth knowledge of the market and competitive products, the science behind them, and have excellent customer service, interpersonal, and communication skills.


  • Understand the commercial feasibility of a Wastewater epidemiology product offering 
  • Partner with internal and external stakeholders to optimize the commercialization of our scientific offering(s), including internal science, compliance, engineering, and operations organizations, as well as external clients and partners.
