Company Culture Coverage

At Pinnacle 21, we are always looking for exceptional team members. Our engineering team is still in its early stages, meaning you will be crucial to shaping the future of this company. We plan to make a lasting impact on the pharmaceutical industry, and you could be a part of that!

Work that matters ​| We work with the pharmaceutical industry to streamline the drug approval process, bringing life-saving medicines to patients that need them. What you’ll be doing is a lot more important than building a shopping cart.

Work autonomously | Enjoy an autonomous environment, where we’ll support your continuous improvement and foster your capabilities to produce high quality code at a rapid pace.

Global footprint ​| We support a community of users from countries across the world that widely regard our
software as the industry standard for clinical submission preparation.


What you’ll be doing

Our engineers are working to solve complex problems in clinical data processing, standardization, and integration. You will be part of a small agile team that is responsible for designing, developing, testing, maintaining, and improving your projects. You will be encouraged to exceed expectations, which is a requirement to succeed in a small team that is constantly working on new challenges. You will not be limited to the back-end and will be given plenty of opportunities to learn and contribute on the full stack. You will have a chance to research new technologies if they are the best solution to a problem, but you will also be expected to learn and use existing solutions when it makes sense. To empower our developers, we will equip you with the best hardware and software available.


What we’re looking for



· Have 4+ years of professional experience writing server-side code (Java/Play/Spring)

· Have 2+ years of professional experience writing client-side code (Javascript)

· Have experience in at least one other general-purpose programming language; including but not limited to Scala, Python, .NET, Ruby, etc

· Have the ability to write a web app from scratch

· Have experience with API design and development

· Have experience using version control (preferably, git)

· Be able to provide examples of previous work you are proud of

· Be able to write useful test cases

· Be smart, and get things done

· Be passionate about software development


· Have a strong grasp and background with algorithms

· Have experience building single page applications (React/Redux)

· Write efficient SQL queries

· Have experience building microservices


Pinnacle 21 is a startup making a big impact on regulatory review processes. Our flagship software provides the biopharmaceutical industry with the key to a fast, efficient drug review process. It’s this technology that drives FDA’s 21st Century Review Initiative, ensuring that submission data is compliant, useful and ready for review — which enables a more efficient review process.  

At the core of our company is our open-source project called Pinnacle 21 Community. We support users from the FDA, PMDA (Japanese Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency), and almost every pharmaceutical company preparing a clinical submission. Building on top of this wide network, we continue to expand into new opportunities and grow our business.

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.
