Position Summary:

Asymmetry Group is a small and rapidly growing boutique strategy consulting firm that helps the world’s leading biotechnology, digital health, and medical device companies commercialize innovative therapeutics and technologies. On any given day, our clients range from early-stage Series A companies to $100B+ market cap biopharmaceutical companies. We are proud that all of the clients we serve have requested follow-on work. We cannot achieve this without a rockstar team – at Asymmetry Group, we truly believe our people are the most important element of how we deliver value to our clients.   

We’re seeking a full time, experienced Senior Analyst to support current and future client work as well as internal initiatives to continue developing our firm.

  • Meaningful Work: We deliver high-quality, pragmatic work to the most innovative healthcare companies out there – we work for clients and on projects that we are passionate about, and that we believe have the potential to bring real advances to healthcare 
  • Strong Team & Culture: We foster a small, collegial organization that takes the best characteristics of consulting to create a supportive culture – we work hard, but we believe in integrating work/life in the way that matters most to our individual employees. Our incredible team is the backbone of what we do, and we are committed to creating a culture that supports them (and you!)
  • Growth & Development: We strive to develop our team in ways that are unique to the individual. We recognize that all team members have different strengths, and we tailor paths forward based on your specific needs 
  • Strong Compensation: We offer competitive salaries and bonus, 401k, healthcare / dental / vision and an open time-off policy 

We can offer you the opportunity to work on complex, interesting strategy consulting projects with the environment and culture of a start-up. If we sound like a good fit for you – continue reading!
