Full-Stack Senior Software Engineer

Clinical Research IO (CRIO) aims to transform and streamline the process of clinical trials, replacing the traditional paper-based manual workflows with a SAAS solution that improves efficiency and reduces error.  Our business operates at the intersection of healthcare and life-science research.  Our customers include clinical research sites, hospitals, biotech and pharma.  We have developed an enterprise solution for research investigators, and we are embarking on building a platform for biotech and pharma sponsors. We provide value to our customers in this highly regulated industry by capturing data that is clean and accurate, eliminating expensive human intervention, and making research data available in real-time.
