Senior Product Manager (Remote in Europe or East Coast, US)

Job description

“Castor’s customer-centric products have supported medical researchers to capture over 160 million data points! As Senior Product Manager, at the heart of our product organization, you’ll ensure we deliver the best software solutions for the clinical trial space, contributing to our journey to improve medical research with technology.” Derk Arts, MD PhD, CEO @ Castor

Who is Castor?

Castor is a leading cloud-based clinical data platform working with some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, biopharmas, and renowned academic institutes.

We simplify the clinical trial process, from recruitment to analysis, with user-friendly, patient-centric technology. Our mission is to bring medical research into the digital age. Why? Because medical research is still largely run using free-text, paper, and legacy technology.

Our self-service platform enables our users to run remote (decentralized), device-enabled, patient-centric trials. By helping our users capture high-quality data and making it machine-readable, we are fundamentally changing the flawed evidence-based medicine process.

How is Castor supporting the Coronavirus crisis?

Castor has joined the global fight against the Coronavirus by making our research data capture system available for free for all COVID-19 research projects. Castor supports more than 200 COVID-19 studies across the world, including the World Health Organization’s SOLIDARITY trial.
