Before new medical treatments can be administered to the public, they must demonstrate safety & efficacy in a clinical trial. These trials protect consumers from ineffective & dangerous products, but the clinical trial process also presents a tremendous bottleneck in delivering life-saving treatments to patients. A typical trial involves coordinating between numerous parties & data formats to gather, store, analyze, & audit clinical data. Mistakes & delays are common, & fewer than 10% of trials finish on time.

At TrialSpark, we are looking for talented analytics engineers to help us reimagine the clinical trial process from first principles & build the end-to-end clinical trial platform.
