Product Manager

Job description

Nostos Genomics is a Berlin-based early-stage startup backed by leading investors and scientists on a mission to improve the lives of the 400 million people around the world who have a genetic disease. To achieve this, we have built a cloud platform using AI and synthetic biology to decipher how changes in our DNA lead to disease. We offer this platform to genetic testing labs and empower them to give more patients a clear and fast diagnosis.


Your role

An early version of our cloud platform is available now, and we are looking for a product manager to shape our product by defining user, market and product requirements, obtaining and implementing customer feedback, prioritizing new features, and guiding our product to medical device certification (in-vitro medical device). You will be our first product hire reporting directly to our CEO, working very closely with our senior software architect while also coordinating with our CTO.

Job requirements


  • Strong product intuition: can articulate the most critical product priorities to meet company objectives, align the team on the product vision, and drive collaborators to execute while being very hands-on
  • Multiple years of industry experience in software product management and/or software development, demonstrating a customer-focused mindset
  • Background in computer science/software engineering
  • Great communication and presentation skills
  • Ability to take ownership and find pragmatic solutions to potentially complex problems
  • Experience with independent work in an iterative, agile and cooperative environment
  • Willingness to learn and openness to feedback


  • Prior experience with (in-vitro) medical device regulation (especially ISO 13485), although not a hard requirement
  • Understanding of the medical lab or general healthcare industry
  • Good grasp of basic machine learning concepts


What we value in our team

Our team reflects the interdisciplinary collaboration required to solve this big challenge – ranging from software and data science to genetics and healthcare. We are a proudly diverse, international group of creative problem-solvers and humble learners that care about having a positive impact on society and are also aware of the trust placed in us. This is why we value transparency and kindness, taking ownership and we encourage your personal growth:


  • Develop your personal skills and knowledge with resources like books and courses to learn continuously

  • Dynamic and flexible work environment that you can design (incl. remote work options)

  • Participate in our success with equity options

  • Possibility to grow with the company and influence our direction

  • Regular social activities: participate only if you feel like it

  • Additionally, we offer good coffee, a selection of healthy snacks and company-subsidized public transport


We see diversity as a core feature of our team and we encourage you to apply especially if you are from an underrepresented group.
