A key piece of our growth strategy involves developing and bringing to market a new product that is based on our initial rehab device, but that will be adapted for new applications.
The product is currently in the conceptual phase, and we have a strong team of professionals working to bring the idea to life. Now we need an expert Product Development Manager who will oversee and facilitate the complex process of creating and executing effective development plans to move the technology from concept to market.

- Familiarity with medical regulatory agencies and procedures (FDA, ECRI, CMS, etc.)
- Can carry out cross-functional duties as needed to execute development plans
- Medical background or training in anatomy is a plus, but not required
In order to have the product ready for market launch in six months, the Product Development Manager will:
- Become familiar with ROM3 business models, objectives, and products
- Create and execute product development plan for ROM3's new technology
- Write RFPs for circulation among engineers, manufacturers, and medical professionals
- Assess proposals and identify partners for key aspects of the design, testing, and manufacturing processes
- Manage diverse teams of salespeople, engineers, healthcare providers, and others

- Facilitate all aspects of product development process (design, engineering, manufacturing, testing, marketing, etc.)
- Use your experience and expertise to take the lead while remaining flexible enough to implement and adapt to feedback
from ROM3 management and advisors
This is primarily a work from home position, but there will be times when the Product Development Manager will need to meet in-person with engineers, medical teams, and others. For that reason, candidates must live in the New York City or Boston metro areas and have access to reliable transportation.
ROM3's leadership team is comprised of successful serial entrepreneurs, and the company's current offerings are only one part of a larger product lineup that they plan to roll out over time. That means that for the right Product Development Manager, this position may grow into a long-term relationship that includes a number of future projects.
Qualified candidates, please respond via email to this ad only (*do not reply through the ROM3 website or over the phone*) and include an up-to-date resume, a list of medical products you have successfully brought to market, and a cover letter detailing why you are the ideal fit for this job.
Compensation is competitive and is negotiable based on experience, accomplishments, and proven success.
Finally, openness, honesty, and candidness are qualities we respond to--as opposed to framing things in the right way with the right words. Please be who you are and let the dice roll.
Thank you for your interest.
