From planning through closeout, our solutions are rigorously tested and improved by sponsors, CROs and sites of all sizes, in more than 60 countries.Through this experience we have established and integrated best practices into every feature of our system. That's why 9 of the top 10 pharmas, 4 of the top 5 CROs, and the biggest industry collaborations are among the many organizations that trust DrugDev technology.Don't take our word for it. There is no better validation of the value of our solutions than to hear directly from clients why they continue to choose our solutions to improve their clinical trials. Pfizer, BioMarin, PHRI and Clinical Site Partners are just a few of the organization that value our solutions.Join Our Mission - - - To Help clients "Do More Trials"The world expects more from pharma. The reality is we have no shortage of promising treatment candidates, yet developing a drug today costs 10x more than it did 30 years ago - as potentially life-saving drugs remain on the shelf. We're not interested in making clinical trials a little faster or a little better, because incremental improvements to the process are no longer acceptable. The world demands and deserves a truly disruptive revolution on an enterprise scale that flips the economics of clinical trials. We believe the only solution is to take advantage of unified and modern technology (as opposed to the disparate, clunky systems of the past) that bring study teams and sites together to do more trials and bring more drugs to patients who need them.ROLE SUMMARYYou will support the Program Management and Scrum activities in support of the Contract Management System effort as approved by the Site Activation BLT.
