    • Review hardware capabilities on manufacturers’ website and examples of how the tool is used in peer reviewed research studies, clinical trials and FDA decisions
    • Gain experience with categorizing a wide range of digital measures including physical activity, sleep and vital signs in a way that is relevant and meaningful to clinicians and researchers 
    • Work with a start-up backed by top venture capitalists
    • Low ego and high EQ: no job should be too small for candidates

What you have

    • Experience working in a clinical setting
    • Experience evaluating methods and outcomes of research studies  
    • Completed a degree in a health-related field (biology, exercise science) and/or a professional degree (medical school, physician assistant)

What success looks like

    • Work with the Research Project Manager to complete behavioral and physiological measurement categorizations on 600+ connected technologies
    • Develop product expertise in digital medicine

Role details

    • Join our team part or full-time for the next 2-3 months
    • Flexible schedule, remote-OK
    • Competitive pay (contract, project-based agreement)
