Job Title: Senior Director, Corporate Communications
Reports To: Chief Financial Officer
Location: Boston, MA
Imagine your child scratching herself so unstoppably through the night that she wakes with blood-stained sheets. Nothing soothes her. You haven’t slept through the night in years. At school, unable to focus, she takes off her shoes and socks to scratch her feet on the carpet. The itch is inescapable. She has a life-threatening liver disease, and it’s getting worse.
Now imagine that you work for a company with a chance to help this child and her family.
This is Albireo. We are relentlessly focused on liver disease with the belief that bile acid modulation offers an innovative way to treat numerous rare and more common diseases affecting people worldwide. We are building a collaborative, committed, employee-friendly company, as we work to make this vision a reality.
Albireo is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and potential commercialization of novel bile acid modulators to treat orphan pediatric liver diseases, and other liver or gastrointestinal diseases and disorders. We have deep expertise in bile acid biology, and a pipeline of clinical and preclinical programs. Our parent company, Albireo Pharma, Inc., is located in Boston, Massachusetts, and our key operating subsidiary, Albireo AB, is located in Gothenburg, Sweden. We were spun out from AstraZeneca in 2008. The Boston Business Journal named Albireo one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Massachusetts.
This is an exciting and pivotal time at Albireo. Our lead product candidate is in a Phase 3 clinical trial for a rare, life-threatening pediatric liver disease with no approved pharmacologic treatment option. We expect topline results in mid-2020. Meanwhile, we are advancing our pipeline in other disease indications. We have a licensing agreement in Japan that already has generated revenues, an excellent financial position for a pre-launch company and a small team of great people. We know personally many of the people we’re working to help, and they motivate us every day.
As we approach our potential first product launch, we have a unique opportunity for an experienced corporate communications leader. As Senior Director of Corporate Communications, you will be responsible for all corporate communications strategy and operations. This role reports to the Chief Financial Officer and is based in Boston.
