In addition, you'll also:

This is an opportunity to use your experience in the way things are “routinely” done in clinical trial operations to find new ways to approach common inefficiencies. Our team is passionate about pairing technology with streamlined operational support to move the needle on drug development in oncology.

- You have a flexible approach to execution; ability to translate/infuse experience, knowledge, and best practices into research deliverables with creative solutions

If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron.
- You have direct experience drafting, reviewing, implementing, and optimizing standard operating procedures (SOPs) as well as the associated training plans
- You have experience with international research regulations (e.g., European Union Clinical Trial Directive)
- You have worked for a technology company or have worked directly with software developers and product managers
