About SubjectWell

SubjectWell is a venture-backed technology startup on an unstoppable mission to disrupt patient recruitment for clinical trials, a $100 billion dollar sector. Clinical trials need millions of qualified patient volunteers, but regularly fall behind schedule because patients are unaware of the benefits of clinical trials or even how to get involved. SubjectWell was founded by two entrepreneurs on their third successful startup finding consumers and matching them with opportunities in digital marketplaces. Our founders realized traditional patient recruitment inefficiently advertises for one clinical trial, research site, and disease at a time. SubjectWell is transforming patient recruitment with the creation of the first and only clinical trials marketplace. We broadly educate people on the benefits of research participation and allow interested patients to choose from and be screened against multiple clinical trials in the marketplace. Since 2012, SubjectWell’s high-touch approach has helped over 780 pharmaceutical and biotech companies find qualified patients in over 175 therapeutic areas. 

SubjectWell is looking for exceptional people, who are passionate about their field of expertise. Your work will build an innovative healthcare startup that is helping patients access promising care and is speeding the delivery of new medical treatments to the world. 

Here is your chance to really make a difference, both in your career and in the lives of millions.

An Insider's view of SubjectWell

What does your typical day look like?

Daily standups, pair programming, team lunches and a decent amount of .gifs and jokes all keep the Dev team connected and enjoying working together. I also have space to learn new skills and am encouraged to do so. I can honestly say it’s never boring here – in a good way!

An inquisitive individual, who has the drive to continuously learn and improve, will easily be successful on our team. Everyone is able to acknowledge when they don’t know something. Then, they can dive-in head first, learn about it, and return with newly acquired knowledge to help the team.
