Director, Regulatory Operations

Kymera Therapeutics
Watertown, MA

We are seeking an experienced Regulatory Operations professional to establish an internal Regulatory Operations function within our Regulatory Affairs team. This is an exciting opportunity to build a Regulatory operations group from the ground up, establishing systems and processes to support Kymera’s global regulatory submissions. The ideal candidate considers themselves a Regulatory operations expert, is excited and motivated to build or implement new systems and processes from scratch and to contribute equally through both day-to-day publishing and submission operations as well as strategic group leadership. This role will act in partnership with the Head of Regulatory Affairs to build out compliant, flexible, and usable systems to efficiently compose, submit and archive global regulatory submissions.

Kymera Therapeutics is a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on advancing the field of targeted protein degradation (TPD), a transformative new approach to address previously intractable disease targets. Kymera’s Pegasus™ TPD platform harnesses the body’s natural protein recycling machinery to degrade disease-causing proteins, with a focus on undrugged nodes in validated pathways currently inaccessible with conventional therapeutics. Our mission is to discover, develop, and commercialize transformative therapies while leading the evolution of targeted protein degradation. Kymera’s goal is to become a fully integrated biopharmaceutical company with a pipeline of novel medicines, with an initial focus on immune-inflammatory diseases and oncology.

In 2021, we plan to continue to grow and strengthen our organizational capabilities to deliver on the potential of inventing a new class of protein degrader medicines for patients. Kymera is rapidly advancing three programs in clinical studies this year. We are also actively advancing a broad pipeline of preclinical programs across a wide variety of diseases, both internally and in collaboration with our partners Sanofi and Vertex Pharmaceuticals.
