Data Architect / MS SQL Developer

Data Architect / MS SQL Developer

Traditionally we understand that an Architect and a Developer are two distinct and separate roles but within the context of the larger Medidata Engineering organization we’re are a small, versatile and nimble team and so therefore need players on our team who are also quick-footed and able to shift gears in their function on an as needed basis. As a tradeoff, you'll have the ability to touch every aspect of the product, set its foundation and determine its direction as well. Thus, this is a ground floor opportunity for the right person within the context of an enterprise which is not just sound and stable but on an upward trajectory (just check out our stock performance for the last few year on NASDAQ under ticker symbol MDSO).
