The Organization

What's happening at Entrada Therapeutics? Entrada is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company aiming to transform the lives of patients by establishing a new class of medicines that engage intracellular targets that have long been considered inaccessible.

Our Endosomal Escape Vehicle (EEV™)-therapeutics are designed to enable the efficient intracellular delivery of a wide range of therapeutics into a variety of organs and tissues, resulting in an improved therapeutic index. Through this proprietary, versatile and modular approach, Entrada is advancing a robust development portfolio of RNA-, antibody- and enzyme-based programs for the potential treatment of neuromuscular, ocular, metabolic and immunological diseases, among others.

Our lead oligonucleotide programs are in development for the potential treatment of people living with Duchenne who are exon 44, 45 and 50 skipping amenable. We have also partnered to develop a clinical-stage program, VX-670, for myotonic dystrophy type 1.

We are a tight-knit team of experts and leaders in both therapeutic development and rare diseases and are excited to grow and attract colleagues who are ready to join a high-energy, dedicated team that likes to get things done and dramatically improve the lives of patients and their families.

The Perfect Addition to Our Team

You are a motivated, resourceful, and enthusiastic Peptide and Oligonucleotide Manufacturing expert excited to support the company at a critical stage in its growth trajectory. If you have hands-on expertise on peptide and/or oligonucleotide process development, can oversee non-GMP/GMP manufacturing (for pre-IND through late-phase clinical studies) remotely and perform activities with minimal supervision in a collaborative matrix setting, this role is for you. At Entrada, you will not be siloed, but rather expected to interact across different functional groups, including Chemistry, Analytical, Drug Product, Pharmacology, Product Development, Quality, and CDMOs. Your ability and desire to thrive in a nimble, fast-paced results-driven environment will set you up for success.

The Opportunity

Senior Manager in drug substance development, and manufacturing for Entrada’s novel pipeline programs.

  • Provide technical support on process development for intermediates (peptide and oligonucleotide) and drug substance at CDMOs applicable for early- and late-stage programs.
  • Identify and resolve manufacturing/testing issues and escalate appropriately to internal and/or joint governance if required.
  • Review master batch records, executed batch records, and other cGMP documentation to enable release and disposition of materials.
  • Partner closely with other internal functions including chemistry, quality control, quality assurance, DP formulation development, and regulatory affairs to ensure programs are effectively supported while maintaining high-quality standard.
  • Develop, author, review study protocols, reports, investigations, deviations, and documentation related to manufacturing including quality documents.
  • Author/review change controls to introduce process improvements through the lifecycle of programs from Phase 1 through Phase 3/validation and commercialization
  • Author/review related sections in regulatory filing documents (IND, IMPD, NDA, BLA, MAA, etc.).
  • Partner with Entrada team for CDMO due diligence during new CDMO selection to vet capabilities, risks and investments required.
  • Manage material logistics and inventory (internally and externally).
  • Other tasks as assigned or as required for a given program.
