What the role looks like:

Reporting into the Commercial Director of Zapyrus, your main responsibility will be to grow the depth of our database by retrieving historical news content for MedTech companies and bringing them into Zapyrus to be made actionable for our users through data and machine learning processes.

  • Scrape Distill documents into admin

  • Develop a deeper database of MedTech company event history through back publication
  • Publishing events on eventless MedTech OEMs and increasing our database size visible to Zapyrus users
  • Increasing coverage and treasure hunting for new MedTech OEMs in the EU
  • Identifying new sources of data e.g. accelerators/incubators, registries, conferences, and more
