Needed – A Purchasing Specialist with a good head for numbers.



Our client is a Seattle-based bio-pharmaceutical company committed to discovering, developing, and commercializing small-molecule and protein therapeutics. It’s not just the science though that attracts the best in the industry – their success stems from their commitment to hiring (and more importantly, retaining) some of the most dedicated, interesting, and engaging professionals to don a lab coat.


From their offices overlooking Elliott Bay and Myrtle Edwards Park, our client hosts yearly Summer BBQs for their staff. The office itself is high-tech, with a lab smack dab in the middle of the space; and if you’re into food-related perks, our client has kitchens on every floor – all fully-stocked and at your disposal. Our client boasts a low turnover; and while some credit can be given to fun perks like BBQs and festive holiday parties, the truth is that employees stay because they believe in their product and the end goal of improving the quality of life for patients everywhere. If you’re someone who is ready to work hard, and feel comfort knowing your work contributes to improving the lives of others, then this could be a great career opportunity for you.
