Company Overview
TrialSpark's mission is to new bring treatments to patients faster and more efficiently by reimagining the clinical trial process.
  • Flexible Time Off - We have a flexible PTO policy so you can find time to recharge, take care of personal matters, and fully enjoy your dream vacations.
  • Parental Leave - We believe your personal life enriches your professional one. We offer 16 weeks of paid parental leave for birthing parents and 12 weeks for non-birthing parents so you can start or grow your family.
  • Comprehensive Benefits - All full time employees have access to health, vision, and dental insurance. Additionally, we provide pre-tax commuter benefits, access to a 401k plan, short and long-term disability and life insurance.
  • Equipment Reimbursement - Employees receive a monthly cell phone stipend, as well as an equipment reimbursement to use to set up a home office.
  • Education & Career Development Resources - TrialSpark offers a plethora of professional development resources to employees. Some examples include fireside chats with industry experts, conference passes, certification courses, internal mobility opportunities, in depth manager training, leadership coaching program, and more.
  • Hybrid Work Environment - Most employees split their time working both at the office and home, while some of our colleagues are fully remote. We have dedicated days when all NYC-area employees work together from the office (for most, this is two to three days per week), and on other days, employees choose their own work location.
  • Team Bonding - Our team likes to get outside the office. You can count on colleagues organizing optional events that aren't your standard happy hour (think rock climbing, food tours, etc) and we have many virtual events to connect with our full remote team (cooking classes, watercolor painting, drag queen bingo, improv, and many more!). Plus, you can put your personal values into practice by joining an Employee Resource Group, including Allyship, TrialSparQ and Women at TrialSpark.
  • Newly Renovated Office - Our beautiful, bright, and plant-filled new NYC headquarters is conveniently located within walking distance to the PATH, Grand Central Station, and Penn Station. Our work environment is collaborative and lively, with cross-functional teams regularly working and socializing together. We fuel our teams with drinks, coffee, and snacks always on hand.
