Job Description

London-based OR remote.


At DSV we believe that traditional methods of scientific tech-push are inefficient for solving the human, societal and planetary challenges faced today.

We’re creating high-impact ventures by combining available scientific knowledge and highly-technical founder-type scientists, taking a systems-level view of opportunities and partnering with a wide variety of institutions.

DSV has built and invested in 30+ ventures across pharma, healthcare, energy and other sectors with over £130m of value created in just 3.5 years. 100% of DSV’s recently launched ventures have gone on to raise further funding within 12 months.



You'll be responsible for DSV’s one of the most important assets – Talent, giving you an enormous opportunity for immediate impact on our business. You will be bringing together founder-type scientists and engineers to tackle the human, societal and planetary challenges faced today.

This role offers a steep and continued learning curve, as well as long terms incentives and development for anyone with keen interest in entrepreneurship and, more importantly, entrepreneurs themselves. You’ll become very skilled in selecting for entrepreneurial traits, building successful founding teams and the inherent people management skills that go with it.

This role is best suited for someone who is highly empathetic, communicative and persistent. You should be fascinated by the fields of science and technology, entrepreneurship and what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur (in STEM), and you are most certainly primarily driven by the desire to make a huge positive impact in the world.

Additionally, we’re after someone who has:

  • Background in science and/or demonstrated interest in translational research or research translation / applied science / science commercialisation / biotech, cleantech or healthtech entrepreneurship or similar; and
  • Experience in building teams or managing programs or projects involving a number of stakeholders, or managing a community.

Additional skills and expertise that would be highly valued (but not a must) are:

  • UX/UI design experience, software engineering, platform product development
  • Data science, statistics, AI/ML
  • Events and project management



Competitive salary, personal development roadmap and deep-dive progress reviews, generous holiday allowance (+ additional 2 week shutdown over Christmas and NYs), flexibility to work from home or a shared workspace (we like WeWork, but you can choose a space the best suits your location), team trips and events (mindful of any COVID restrictions, of course) and a chance to work with some of the most ambitious projects and people out there!
