Director of Compliance

Austin, Texas, United States Full-time

About SubjectWell

SubjectWell is a venture-backed startup on an unstoppable mission to disrupt the antiquated $100 billion dollar clinical trial patient recruitment sector. Almost all clinical trials fall behind schedule, leaving patients unable to access the most promising treatments and pharmaceutical and biotech companies unable to quickly carry their innovations to market. SubjectWell was founded by two entrepreneurs on their third successful startup, to unlock the potential of a true marketplace for clinical trials. We leverage proven data science and performance marketing techniques to hit a hard reset to the massive patient recruitment challenge that sits at the critical nexus of speeding delivery of the best therapeutics to the world.

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