It’s great to work here
And here are a few reasons why
If there’s one quality we value more than anything else, it’s the ability to communicate clearly and effectively. Our environment is fast-paced and our industry is complex. We need people who can cut through the noise and maintain productive, honest conversations with team members and clients alike.
Our industry is constantly shifting, and our company must adapt to grow. Our dynamic team follows industry trends to identify new ways to serve our clients and improve clinical trials. We need people who think “challenge” is just another word for “opportunity.”
At ClinEdge, we give back to our community. Last year we raised money for the National Alliance on Mental Illness and participated in a NAMI walk. ClinEdge Cares provides non-profits with affordable design services. We need people who want to make a difference in their communities; clinical research is ultimately about improving medicine for everyone.
We believe in resilient partnerships. We share our ideas, successes and challenges with the pharma and research community across the globe, and in our very own backyard: the heart of Boston. We need people who are effective in person-to-person interactions, because that’s our key to success.
Qualifications: 1-3 years of work experience in related field or role, either finance or pharma.
