NewLimit is a biotechnology company working to radically extend human healthspan. We’re developing medicines to treat age-related diseases by reprogramming the epigenome, a new therapeutic mechanism to restore regenerative potential in aged and diseased cells. We leverage functional genomics, pooled perturbation screening, and machine learning models to unravel the biology of epigenetic aging and disease using experiments of unprecedented scale.
NewLimit is seeking a Head of Talent to lead our recruiting function. NewLimit’s is a science-driven company operating at the confluence of multiple highly-technical fields. For many of our roles, there are fewer than 100 qualified candidates in the world. Finding Top Talent in these niches presents an opportunity to dive deep into the rapidly growing intersection of biotechnology and AI, develop relationships across both fields, and help set the culture at an exciting company.
As NewLimit’s Head of Talent, you will:
Develop relationships with Top Talent across computational biology, machine learning, functional genomics, and immunology.
Source candidates from some of the narrowest talent pools in the industry.
Perform end-to-end recruiting with a focus on a positive candidate experience.
Develop a robust recruiting process, from sourcing to closing. You will have agency to choose your tools and set an ideal process, rather than inheriting a legacy machine.
Multi-year experience in talent sourcing / acquisition in a top biotechnology or technology company recruiting across levels (entry-level to Director+)
Experience recruiting niche technical talent — the ideal candidate can tell a story about finding and recruiting one of few people in the world who can fill a role.
Experience building or improving a recruiting process from sourcing to close.

Great communicator and able to sell the vision of the company in a compelling and concise manner.
Nice to have
Bachelor’s or greater degree in the natural sciences or engineering is strongly preferred.
