Business Development Executive (BDE) - Southern US



Gemelli Biotech is a private, US-based company founded in late 2018. Gemelli offers diagnostic tests to patients who suffer from gastrointestinal (GI)-related issues and seek both an accurate diagnosis of their illness and a more efficient treatment pathway relative to the standard of care. At the heart of Gemelli’s founding is a partnership with Cedars-Sinai’s Medically Associated Science and Technology (MAST) program, which is dedicated to the development of innovations related to the microbiome. This close partnership not only fosters the improvement and growth of Gemelli’s existing technology, but also provides a source for future technologies.

Business Development Executives are responsible for the sales function of Gemelli Biotech diagnostic tests. Our BDEs identify new business opportunities as the bulk of their day-to-day operations while also managing existing customer relationships within a given territory. They understand customer, industry, and business needs while strategically selling our testing services.
