Job Description
About the Company

Our client is a venture-backed start-up on an unstoppable mission to disrupt the antiquated $100 billion dollar clinical trial patient recruitment sector. Almost all clinical trials fall behind schedule, leaving patients unable to access the most promising treatments and pharmaceutical and biotech companies unable to quickly carry their innovations to market. The company was founded by two entrepreneurs on their third successful start-up, to unlock the potential of a true marketplace for clinical trials. They leverage proven data science and performance marketing techniques to hit a hard reset to the massive patient recruitment challenge that sits at the critical nexus of speeding delivery of the best therapeutics to the world.
