We have built a team of top-performing consultants who enjoy the best of both worlds: the opportunity to do the work they love with the flexibility of our on-demand service model. We work alongside our clients as true partners and share a commitment to providing the best service possible.

Danforth consultants are deployed for early- and growth-stage life science companies, including venture backed, near public and publicly traded entities. Consultants have a high degree of flexibility with respect to the hours worked and the ability to work virtually, typically balancing the demands of two to three clients at a time. Our consultants benefit from access to the resources of the entire Danforth organization, and have the opportunity to work among larger Danforth-staffed teams on certain engagements. It is an excellent opportunity to work with high growth, dynamic players in the fields of biotechnology, medical devices, precision medicine, digital health and healthcare services.

We frequently have contract and part-time positions available for controllers, financial planning & analysis specialists and senior level finance executives who have experience within life science or healthcare technology and service companies.
