Senior UX Designer (EMEA)

Who is Castor?

"At Castor, it’s incredibly humbling to work on a product that actually delivers a true benefit to the world. Our user-focused products are advancing the discovery of evidence that cures diseases.

As our Senior UX Designer, you will be solving the user's biggest problems in medical research, collaborating with UX designers, researchers, and PMs to supercharge our market-leading healthcare technology."

David Mitchell, Head of UX & Design


Castor is a leading cloud-based clinical data platform working with some of the world’s largest medical device companies, biopharma, 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, 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 tools freely available for all COVID-19 research projects. Currently, Castor is supporting more than 250+ COVID-19 studies across the world, including the WHO’s Solidarity trial.
