Synex

Talent Acquisition and People Operations Lead

Full-Time in United States - Remote OK - Ops

We’re building a highly miniaturized system that can non-invasively measure different metabolites in your blood (like glucose and cholesterol) based on breakthrough techniques we developed in magnetic resonance spectroscopy (similar to MRI). Our vision is to deliver a technology that can continuously provide people with critical metabolic data to help make healthcare completely predictive. What we’re building is turning sci-fi into reality! We’re funded by some of the top VCs and Angels in Boston, SF and Toronto and are growing quickly in Toronto & Boston.

Our team is incredibly driven, smart, and we’re working with some of the leading global experts in our field. We also made Betakit's list as one of the 11 tech startups to watch in 2021.

Today, we are a team of 15 and growing with a presence in Toronto and Boston. We are on track to deliver our MVP by the end of 2021, which will measure glucose and lactate non-invasively. We are gearing up for some amazing milestones (series A, clinical validation, MVP delivery) and need top talent to join our team.

Reporting to the VP of Operations, you will play a critical role in attracting and recruiting top talent and developing and implementing processes for people operations. We are looking for a driven, entrepreneurial, strategic thinker to help us grow the company and bring our mission to reality.
