#22451 -- DevOps Architect - Clinical Studies
Location: San Francisco, 94103
Company Description:
Our client facilitates how study teams get clinical trials started and done. They're building the modern way to work together; a fast and versatile web application that connects sponsors, CROs, and sites with what s going on, their shared priorities, and who owns each part of the effort.
They are software engineering, clinical operations, and thought leaders from companies like Amgen, Genentech, Quintiles, Roche, Johnson & Johnson, CERN, McKinsey & Company, Intuit, Cisco WebEx, E*TRADE, Peoplesoft and Sun Microsystems. We're backed by Aberdare Ventures, Singapore EDBI, Qualcomm Life Fund of Qualcomm Ventures, West Health Investment Fund, and an experienced team of advisors.
The clinical study startup process is awful. Existing tools used to track site activation tasks and documents are manual, bloated, and complex. To take the next step in clinical study productivity, we need a fresh start. Our client created a way to help take that step; to improve the productivity of sponsors, CROs, and sites, to ultimately get medicines to those in need faster.
