Lightship is the virtual-first provider that is perfecting the way clinical trials get done. Because clinical research plays such a vital role in bringing life-enhancing and lifesaving innovations to market, Lightship pursues operational excellence to clinical studies. Our end-to-end hybrid delivery model, our diversity of skillsets, and inhouse care team ensure sponsor success and the best possible patient experience. With a problem-solving mindset, we strive to make every clinical trial better than the last. Operational excellence is not a goal, but a way of doing things at Lightship.

Lightship expects each individual to anchor their availability in the standard operating hours for their geographic location, however, true to our values of inclusion and flexibility, this role, along with all others at Lightship, may be asked to flex work hours to accommodate US West Coast, US East Coast, and UK-based time zones, based on business need. In practice, this may translate to days that have a slightly earlier start or evenings that have a slightly later end. Culturally, we aim to balance the ability to operate across time zones with respect for each individual's daily life.

We would like to offer you:

  • An opportunity to help re-envision how clinical research is executed with inclusivity, increased diversity and accessible at the core
  • The chance to work with a patient-centered, clinically-oriented, collaborative team to support in the delivery of enterprise grade virtual-first clinical research solutions at scale

  • Top notch private supplemental healthcare (medical, dental, and vision) for you and your family, effective on day one of employment.  
  • Holidays Policy (25 days), plus public bank holidays and bereavement to help support work life balance.
  • Company sponsored group pension program w/ company contribution.
  • Monthly stipend for internet and phone expenses
  • Generous paid parental leave
  • Group Life Cover
