The second Castor Burrow!
Did you know that 85% of time and money spent on medical research doesn't contribute to patient health?
We support medical researchers to deliver the best possible healthcare to patients worldwide.
Using technology, we help them capture high quality, standardized data, that they can share in a trusted environment.
Understanding that researchers want technology to work for them, not against them.
Building a team of smart people to solve the biggest problems in health tech, working on data interoperability, big data and AI.
Well, it’s safe to say that there really is no ‘typical’ day at Castor. As a dynamic, fast-growing, healthtech scale-up, you should always expect the unexpected.
Most likely, you’ll kick off your day with a team stand-up. The office is always busy on a Monday (well - not at the moment as most of our team are working remotely), but through connecting with your colleagues, we get the week off to a flying start!
We've always promoted flexible working at Castor and, now more than ever, we encourage all our Castorians to keep on their ‘jogs’ and work from home. However, as we continue to work to a safer environment, we also encourage working with colleagues in the office - with good physical distancing measures in place!
On Fridays, we all get together for a (virtual) company wide, sharing any hot topics from the week and highlighting any areas we might need some cross-team help.
During the day we work hard. To stay focused and balanced, you can participate in a daily meditation session (take a look below for a sneak peak at our very own focus and yoga space), a Tuesday stroll or a classic game of ping pong.
Around noon, everyone takes a break to catch up and re-energize with a healthy lunch. Whilst we had to put a pause on team lunching to ensure all our Castorians stay safe, we usually have a great lunch team who come each day and cook up a delicious storm! Getting hungry again? We've got your back! We provide you with access to protein bars, shakes, fruit and lots of other healthy snacks throughout the day.
We encourage our Castorians to have a good split between home and work hours. Why? To take that crucial time for yourself and ensure you have time for family and friends. We love hanging out together. Our fun squad organizes lots of activities, as well as an annual company retreat (also on hold at the moment - but, we are trying to work towards something virtual!).

Yes, we're biased, but Amsterdam is a great city to work and live in! Small village feel, but lots of stuff going on and plenty to see. Canals, museums, great parties, parks and the rest of Europe is only a plane ride away from European hub Schiphol Airport. Take a look at the Amsterdam Expat Centers top 10 reasons to love Amsterdam.
We will sponsor your highly skilled migrant visum, which allows you to enjoy the '30% ruling' that gives you a major tax-break. Check the IN Amsterdam site for more information.
