Each member of our community shares in the consolidated value of our global, federated health research network that connects clinical researchers to the patient populations which they are attempting to study.

Who we are looking for:

Our customer base and network are growing rapidly and we are expanding our Engineering Team. We are looking for extremely talented, energetic, and motivated interns to join us on our journey. We are a small group and you will have a big impact on the success of our product and company.

We have seen success with past interns and are excited to see what ideas you can bring to the table to improve our platform. You can expect to primarily focus on a project of your choosing but also learn modern software engineering techniques by engaging in typical engineer duties. To ensure a productive internship experience, we will work with you to ideate your project and bring it to life. Other engineers, designers, and product managers, thanks to the company's community-based culture, will be ready to lend you a hand through roadblocks and difficulties - we've all been there.

Though you will be primarily focused on your project, we expect certain standards of software development. You will be responsible for overall design and code quality. Additionally, you will ensure your solutions are secure, scalable, testable, and maintainable and are aligned with other areas of the system. Though you might not be familiar with these concepts in practice, we will be there to guide and support you through the process. We are here to foster a learning experience that is both productive to you as well as the company.

The internship will cumulate with a company-wide internship presentation, where you will show off the work you've done and your experience.

In terms of timeline, we are flexible in start and end dates. We've seen part-time internships during a school semester, full-time internships during the summer, and everything in between. Due to the advantage of immersion, we would prefer interns start with full-time work before transitioning to a different schedule.


  • Conversion from an internship position to a full-time employee position is possible and has occurred.
  • This internship is a paid position.
  • This internship is a hybrid position in Cambridge, MA, with some onsite and some remote days.
