We’re looking for a senior strategic finance manager to help change the future of medicine.Note: This role is based at our NYC HQ; however, our office is closed through June 2021.

Of the several thousand known diseases that affect humans, only ~500 have treatments; few have cures.

Despite advances that have made the discovery of new drug candidates faster than ever, thousands of potential treatments remain "on the shelf," untested, because of the enormous bottleneck of putting them through clinical trials. On average, getting a drug through the trial process takes nearly a decade and frequently costs over $1B -- and over time, the problem has only gotten worse. As a result, only a select few treatments ever get a shot at reaching patients who need them. To make matters worse, the high cost of clinical trials often results in high drug prices for patients.TrialSpark is a new healthcare company on a mission to bring treatments to patients faster and more efficiently by reimagining clinical trials.Join us in changing the way physicians, researchers, and patients work together to advance medical research.
