Job Title: Senior Revenue Accountant
Location: Emeryville, California
Position Type: Permanent/Full Time

About the Company:

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing products for the eye care market. We are currently focused primarily on commercializing prescription Avenova® for managing hygiene of the eyelids and lashes in the United States. The rapid sales growth of Avenova has improved NovaBay’s operating cash flow from a $20 million burn for 2015 to positive cash flow for the month of December 2016.

Avenova is the only eye care product formulated with a proprietary, stable and pure form of hypochlorous acid, branded by NovaBay as Neutrox®. By replicating the anti-microbial chemicals used by white blood cells to fight infection, Neutrox has proven in laboratory testing to have broad antimicrobial properties. Avenova with Neutrox removes debris from the skin on eyelids and lashes without burning or stinging.

We have developed additional commercial products containing Neutrox, including our NeutroPhase® Skin and Wound Cleanser for wound care and CelleRx® for the dermatology market. We have partnerships for NeutroPhase in the U.S. as well as select overseas markets, most notably China.

In addition to our Neutrox family of products, we have also synthesized and developed a second category of novel compounds aimed at harnessing the power of white blood cell chemistry to address the global, topical anti-infective market. This second product category includes auriclosene, our lead clinical-stage Aganocide® compound, which is a patented, synthetic molecule with a broad spectrum of activity against bacteria, viruses and fungi.
