Tech Lead

| Greater NYC Area

Trialspark is a technology company bringing new medical treatments to patients faster by reimagining the clinical trial process.

Today, trials are an intensely manual process. Data are collected via pen and paper, binders of physical documents are transported from site to site, and clinical results are audited by hand. The process is further complicated by the required coordination of numerous parties, including doctors, patients, research coordinators, data managers, and trial monitors. Inefficiencies such as these result in trials costing hundreds of millions of dollars and fewer than 10% finishing on time.

We believe that engineering and technology is foundational in reimagining the clinical trial experience. At Trialspark, we’re building a single technology and data platform to power full clinical trials, streamlining complexity and ultimately reducing the cost and time of delivering a new treatment.
