Stacey first learned of Dyax from a former colleague who told her about a position on the company's Web site - the job that she holds now. A biotech veteran with experience in larger companies as well as start-ups, Stacey admits to being a bit hesitant about joining a company planning to launch its first product. But during her interview, she got the impression that Dyax was far more than a traditional, small biotechnology firm, and her experience since joining the company in May 2008 has borne that out.
"Dyax is an innovative research organization with a validated technology platform in phage display that provides an established revenue stream. While a lot of small biotechnology companies want to design novel therapies, they don't want to realize them and deliver those therapies to patients themselves. But Dyax has the vision, enthusiasm and passion to break into the small list of fully integrated biotechnology companies that design, develop, and commercialize novel therapies."
"At Dyax, there is a real connection to patients that resonates throughout the organization. The environment is full of passionate, committed people who believe in the promise of the company and our products."
Mark heard about the opportunity at Dyax from a former colleague. Mark's finance background and previous experience in the biotech industry have been an asset to the internal Information Technology team as he partners with other departments and outside vendors to manage a variety of projects and initiatives crucial to the Dyax mission.
Mark sees the strong commitment employees have to each other and to our patients as the largest success factor for Dyax.
"Working here is more than just a job. Everyone here cares about each other - it's like a family. You have the opportunity to work with people at all levels from every department, and everyone works together to accomplish their goals.Everyone here is motivated by our patients, both those we are helping today, and those we will help tomorrow. Even if you don't see or speak to patients or doctors every day, it is easy to see how the hard work of every Dyax employee leads to positive, often life-changing results."
