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 an experienced QA leader who is intellectually curious and can bring new ideas and perspectives to our growing team. You like to work collaboratively with other cross-functional stakeholders and aren't scared to roll up your sleeves when needed. You follow up and follow through, efficiently connecting problems with solutions. 

The Opportunity

As the Executive Director of Quality Assurance, you will play a pivotal role in shaping and implementing our quality strategy across all aspects of our operations. Reporting directly to the President & COO, you will be responsible for ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements, fostering a culture of continuous improvement, and maintaining the highest standards of quality throughout our organization.

Responsibilities
  • Evolve and scale the QA function, with a focus on the development of systems and policies. Define department goals and metrics that align with the corporate objectives.
  • Establish effective partnerships with cross-functional departments and leaders (e.g., regulatory affairs, CMC, Clinical Operations, and Product Development) to facilitate the identification and resolution of quality matters and other opportunities for quality process improvement.
  • Develop short and long-term plans to achieve both quality and business objectives for the organization.
  • Develop and manage quality department budget.
  • Develop the quality policies consistent with current regulatory expectations for rare diseases and ensure that the quality policies and objectives are clearly communicated, implemented, and maintained within the organization.
  • Develop quality metrics and indicators to proactively identify and address quality systems or product-related issues.
  • Monitor key quality metrics, analyze insights, and report findings to senior management during management reviews.
  • Develop, implement, and maintain Entrada’s quality management system as appropriate for the development stage of the product and in compliance with US FDA, EMA and other international regulatory agencies regulations and expectations.
