About the job

Do you want to use your software engineering skills to change medical research for the better?

If you answered "yes", then the Sr. Software Engineer role at Curebase is for you! We are a decentralized clinical trial platform, taking medical research out of traditional hospital settings and bringing it directly to patients at home and with their own doctors. Our software allows any patient to contribute to medical research, and any healthcare provider to contribute to cutting-edge research. Our distributed approach to clinical trials reaches more diverse patients, faster, and at lower cost than traditional clinical trials, and has been proven essential given the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
