Job Description

Director of Regulatory Affairs | Orthopedics | Virginia

This is a chance to join a true startup and play a major role in bringing disruptive biologics products to market! As the Director of Regulatory Affairs for this orthopedic technology startup, you will be the guiding hand in bringing these innovative medical devices through the 510k process.

In this role, you will be the primary point of contact with the FDA for all 510(k) activities. While this young company is already commercial with their first product, there is a robust pipeline of new technologies that will need to be guided through the regulatory process. Because this is such a small and rapidly growing company, your ability to adapt to new challenges as they arise will be critical to yours and the company’s success. The teams here are transparent and work effectively together, so you should already have a collaborative attitude to work here. Expect to build your own team after establishing the groundwork in the first few months. There will be a blend of strategic management and getting in and doing the job yourself – expect to be a player coach in all aspects of the job. Additionally, there will be some crossover with the clinical side of the business, especially for trial development and site selection. If you have experience overlapping with the clinical side of the business, that is a huge advantage here.

To succeed in this role, you have an expert level knowledge of medical device regulatory processes and the 510(k) submission process. Ideally, we would love to see your previous experience with innovative orthopedic, sports medicine, or biologics products and how you helped win regulatory approval for them. Your product development knowledge will also be a major bonus, as well as your knowledge of post-market support for new products. If you’ve previously interfaced heavily with clinical affairs, you would be a major value add for the company as well. For the right individual, we’re offering a competitive compensation package with a strong equity offering as well. We truly want you to believe in our vision and products and be part of our success story.
