A bit about us

Overwatch helps scientific researchers design, track and collaborate on their studies, freeing up vital time so they can focus on creative problem solving rather than repetitive (and error-prone) activities.

We’re a small but exciting company based in Belfast, our product is used by some of the largest pharmaceutical companies on the planet – that’s why we’ve been named Startup of the Year by the Digital DNA Awards.

If you’re reading this, congratulations; you’re halfway there.

Role Overview

As our head of marketing you'll be in charge of developing and maintaining our presence in the preclinical software space. Digital marketing and physical conference attendance are responsible for the majority of our leads. A solid knowledge of website and marketing analytics tools is critical alongside the ability to identify relevant meetings where our product should be showcased.

You'll have a bachelor's or masters degree in marketing and a proven working experience in digital marketing. If you've got experience in the scientific industry, that's a big plus.

We'd like to hear about what you've worked on in the past which has led to some amazing results, and if you have physical examples all the better.
