Who We Are

PathAI is on a mission to improve patient outcomes with AI-powered pathology. We are transforming traditional pathology methods into powerful, new technologies. These innovations in pathology can help accelerate drug development, improve confidence in the accuracy of diagnosis, and get life-saving therapies to patients more quickly. At PathAI, you'll work with a diverse and talented team of people, who are dedicated to solving complex problems and making a huge impact.

Context

Over the past five years, PathAI has developed many pathology algorithms (across various IO biomarkers and indications in Oncology, Hepatology, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease) that aim to tackle major challenges in precision medicine. While most of these algorithms were developed in the context of accelerating drug development, PathAI has observed a growing global demand and interest from AP laboratories to deploy these algorithms for use within their laboratories. To meet the growing demand from laboratories around the world, PathAI is building out a new commercial organization aimed at bringing our algorithms closer to pathologists.

Where You Fit

The Director of EU Sales and Partnerships, Digital Diagnostics will be accountable for selling PathAI’s AISight digital pathology image management system and menu of algorithms to pathology laboratories in Europe (with a particular focus on UK + EU4 markets).

  • Support overall commercial strategy for a channel and/or geography-specific sales strategy by conducting segmentation analyses of anatomic pathology laboratories and key accounts based on company priorities
  • Serve as the voice of the customer across challenges and opportunities to a broad cross-functional team of leaders across Algorithm Product, Platform Product, Medical, Legal/Regulatory, Strategic Partnerships, and Marketing.
