At Pinnacle 21, employees know they are building something meaningful. The company’s industry-leading clinical data standardization platform streamlines the drug approval process, ultimately getting medications in the hands of patients faster.
Today, freshly planted in its bright, spacious new office in Blue Bell, PA, Pinnacle 21 has a number of seats open for more technologists eager to make an impact on the clinical drug trial process.
With its products already in use by the FDA, and industry-wide by biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, Pinnacle 21 is continuing its work to shrink the clinical trial process, as well as looking to build new products outside of its niche in standardization.
That growth calls for hiring a new wave of engineers and customer success managers who are excited to tackle revolutionary product development within the clinical trial process industry.
The team-centric company has proven to be a draw for professionals who thrive when empowered with autonomy and ownership. Every single person is an essential part of the process. Titles and status hold little weight around the office, as all employees have equal footing, respect and influence.
There’s also a balance between work and life. Benefits include a generous amount of PTO and free healthcare for the entire family. But it’s more about an overall culture of empowerment and trust. Employees go home with a sense that they’ve contributed to the overall good, while also working for a team that has one other’s backs. As a bonus, there’s a genuine camaraderie amongst the crew, often found huddled in the kitchen shooting the breeze, going out for group lunches or meeting up after hours to workout at the on-site gym.
"I’ve always been really passionate about data standardization and quality, and Pinnacle is the gold standard in the industry. When I had the opportunity to join the company, it was a pinch me moment. To impact users and the industry, to make sure they’re making high quality data — I genuinely love that."Amy Garrett Product Manager
"What I like is that we’re never short on challenges. Every year we’re doing something new and exciting that challenges me to grow as an engineer."Kevin McIntyre Lead Software Engineer
"We’re building something special. And it motivates a lot of people here that we’re making an impact on the clinical trial process and getting meds to patients more quickly."Brad Moran Lead Software Engineer
What are the benefits of working at a small company like Pinnacle 21?
There’s incredible impact to be made. Anyone coming in will be able to get their hands on a lot very quickly and represent their own piece of the pie here. You can count on having true ownership of the work.
Being a small company, we’re very malleable. At our current stage, any engineers coming in will be able to accelerate what we’re doing and how quickly we’ll be able to take the next steps. We have a very aggressive product roadmap and the only thing we need now is that next wave of talent.
What does Pinnacle 21 look for in prospective employees?
We look for people who are autonomous, resourceful, and scrappy. We’re driven by speed and efficiency. We want to make sure the job is getting done in the quickest and most effective manner. But we don’t work fast and just let quality go out the window. We work smarter, not harder.
What kind of tech skills do you expect candidates to have?
For Full-Stack Engineers: Java, JS, Play Framework, ReactJS, Redux, Postgres, AWS, and experience in Agile
How does Pinnacle 21 invest in employee growth and learning?
We encourage professional growth in a number of ways. We will always support you through educational opportunities, growth and mentorship. There’s also no shortage of challenging projects that will further your career.
We offer employees the opportunity to go to one conference a year, on us. We also encourage our people to take professional training courses on behalf of the company.
