About Tropic Biosciences
Based in Norwich (UK) and with a team of over 90 professionals, Tropic Biosciences is one of the world’s leading agricultural gene-editing companies. Our team is dedicated to the development and commercialization of high-performing varieties of tropical crops to provide significant benefits to growers, processors and consumers globally.
Our vision is to become a dominant seed business with significant ownership of products from the laboratory to the field, while maintaining constructive relationships with growers and consumers based on transparency and trust.
Our GEiGS® (Gene Editing induced Gene Silencing) technology is used to edit non-coding genes so that their silencing function is redirected towards desired new targets. The technology platform is being applied internally for the development of valuable traits in our key crops. We are also actively licensing the technology to external parties, who are working on other crops as well as livestock and aquaculture species, enabling them to develop valuable traits in their species of interest.

Reporting to the CCO and working closely with Tropic’s Commercial and R&D teams, we are seeking a Business Development professional who will identify business opportunities for Tropic’s proprietary GEiGS® technology platform, engage prospective customers, negotiate and close business deals and maintain extensive knowledge of the technology, competitive landscape and current market conditions.
As the Business Development Manager, Technologies, you will identify new business opportunities for GEiGS® and generate revenue through out-licensing of the GEiGS® technology and sales of services that support the platform.
