Senior Clinical Research Associate

First Some Stuff on Us:

We recognize that employees look and feel different in every company, so it’s important to first describe the principles that will drive success in the role prior to talking about the specific responsibilities and tasks. These are: 
1. An obsessive focus on the customer 
2. Being accountable to the customer as if we were their own employee
3. Understanding that strategy is only as good as the execution - and vice versa 
4. Placing a high value on teamwork
5. People are at the heart of the product

In short, we want to build a big but small company.
