Head of People

Background

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.

Positive workplace culture and people development are critical to Trialspark’s mission and success. Improving clinical research is one of the most impactful problems to be working on, and it requires the best and the brightest. Our team is currently ~125 people and you will be helping to build the culture from the ground up! We’re a team of mission-oriented, ambitious, yet humble individuals working in a dynamic space and growing fast.
