EQRx believes responsibility can be revolutionary. Want to make a difference while advancing your career? Come join a team that is working towards our bold mission of developing innovative medicines at radically low prices to help people get the medicines they need.

What You'll Do

The Vice President of Corporate Strategy will be an inspirational force driving forward and realizing EQRx’s mission to deliver quality medicines to patients at a fraction of the cost. You will lead the creation and implementation of EQRx’s corporate strategy, including establishing and executing our strategic planning processes; creating, aligning, and tracking our objectives and goals; delivering our therapeutic landscape analysis and pipeline prioritization; and driving asset and pipeline research and valuation. You will provide leadership to and partner with teams responsible for 1) corporate strategy and strategic initiatives, 2) therapeutic landscape analysis and pipeline prioritization and 3) asset and pipeline research and valuation. You will devise and implement a bespoke annual strategic planning methodology that delivers on the corporate strategic goals and lead the cross- functional development of the corporate strategic plan. You will develop “Disease Area Profiles” (DAP) to guide prioritization efforts and develop and execute market research plans specific to each molecule and therapeutic area. You will conduct in-depth product and/or indication level commercial valuations/market opportunity assessments and conduct valuation of internal corporate assets. You will partner across the company and lead cross functional teams in answering key, enterprise-wide strategic questions (e.g. disease area focus, novel payer relationship models, etc.). You will also support key strategic questions that arise on an ad hoc basis to support our Senior Leadership team.

This is a highly critical and impactful role in our organization, and you will help guide key strategic and business decisions.
