This is the perfect role for graduate or early careerist looking to gain valuable work experience and responsibility at a fast growing early stage start up.

Why you should join Opvia

Opvia is a modern workspace that teams use to document and execute quality managed procedures.

Let me tell you why I think it’s so exciting!

The best way to do this is to share a little about our customers...

They’re teams of smart scientists at life-science companies who are developing changing products, or the processes to manufacture them - from clean meats, to personalised medicines. They want to be able to:

  1. collaborate with ease, and keep track of their work
  2. develop and automate their procedures
  3. have all of their data in one place, so they can move from a traditional hypothesis driven modus operandi, to a data-driven one

And, all of their work needs to be carefully documented and signed off so that it can be later presented to the regulatory authorities.

Our customers are smart people. So we provide them with the building blocks they need to develop with their own solutions.

How do we do that? - Let's chat and we’ll show you :)
