Why join us?

  • Our product is working — We've already helped the company that developed the ebola vaccine. They used our software to recruit, screen, and schedule patients for the clinical trial. We've done likewise for the largest HIV public-health study in California (Childrens' Hospital of Los Angeles).

  • Social impact — We help bring medical treatments to patients faster which solves an important social problem and changes lives.

  • Ownership — There is a tight feedback loop between our users and engineering team. We also give engineers a lot of product ownership and autonomy here.


Engineering at TrialSpark

Engineering team and processes

We're a group of tight-knit, smart, and kind engineers. We work fast at a high level of quality, so expect ownership and involvement at all steps in the planning, design, and development processes. Collaboration and transparency are very important to us, so we're often at the decision-making table with product and design, and regularly interact directly with users. We empower Squads to define the most productive process for themselves, but generally work in biweekly sprints or kanban. We deliver multiple PRs to prod every day via our CI pipeline, are fully dockerized for local development, and are committed to quality through design review, code review, and automated testing.

Technical Challenges

We're building a clinical data platform to standardize (and ultimately automate) entire clinical trials, generate better data on treatment efficacy for diverse patient populations, and ultimately bring new treatments to patients faster and more efficiently. We're making sense of complex, low-quality health data (e.g. Electronic Health Records and Insurance Claims) and protocol data (e.g. eligibility criteria) to better match patients to the trials that will provide them the best care. As we reimagine the clinical trial, we're unlocking entirely new modalities like adaptive trials that allow running multiple tests in parallel without adding risk or significant cost.

Projects you might work on
  • Patient eligibility engine - to structure patient data and route them to the best trial for them.

  • Clinical data platform - seamless data capture (dynamic form library) all the way down to ETL and data pipelines for instant trial data analysis.

Some of our companywide objectives for 2021: Build and consistently implement people processes and systems that reflect our values and create an inclusive culture - Implement performance, promotion and compensation review processes that drive consistency, equitability and fairness - Develop sustainable systems for ongoing cross-functional collaboration and 360 feedback

Evolve our recruitment practices to attract top talent and reflect the diverse population we serve. - Bring more underrepresented groups into our recruiting pipeline leading to increased hiring of underrepresented groups - Build a best-in-class recruitment process to attract top talent

We have a full DEI roadmap which encompasses recruitment representation goals for our studies, diversifying our team and equity in our people processes.

One notable thing, the three ERGs we have currently: TrialSparq (LGBTQIA+) Allyship ERG Women's ERG

    Clinical Trials have historically underserved minorities and even exploited POC (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuskegee_Syphilis_Study). TrialSpark aims to flip this dynamic on its head by building accountability for patient outcomes, reducing the cost and time to develop new treatments, and improving patient access — especially through community doctors.

  • Social impact driven

    We're here to bring new medical treatments to patients faster and more efficiently
