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 Test Engineers ensure that our products match the high quality expected by our clients. You will work to automate our test cases where appropriate and design the frameworks needed to create functional and integration tests. We’ll look for someone with a track record of taking pride in owning the quality of the application as well as the Testing unit itself, ensuring to guide other test engineers in their efforts and organize manual testers. You’ll be expected to track test coverage metrics and prioritize testing gaps. You will be encouraged to exceed expectations, which is a requirement to succeed in a small team that is constantly encountering new challenges.


What we’re looking for


  • Have 4+ years of professional experience testing applications
  • Have experience in at least one general-purpose programming language (Java, .NET, Python)
  • You should be able to analyze requirements and advise developers that don’t have clear documentation
  • Have wide knowledge of testing frameworks and determine which is best to use for a particular project
  • Have experience organizing test suites
  • Be able to lead a team and organize projects
  • 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 understanding of web design and user experience
  • Have experience working in an Agile Scrum process
  • Have experience writing SQL queries
  • Have experience working with CircleCI

What are the benefits of working at a small company like Pinnacle 21? 

You’ll be close to the founding team and catch our entrepreneurial energy. Joining us right as we hit a growth spurt means you’ll not only “do the work” but also direct and optimize our processes for doing so. (We don’t compromise our values, but our methods are malleable.) We’re a perfect place if you want ownership and are relentlessly resourceful. There’s massive impact still to be made.

What does Pinnacle 21 look for in prospective employees? 

Our product roadmap is aggressive, and to accelerate it, we need a wave of talent. Our radar pings for people who bring positive energy with a “Yes, and…” attitude, who work smart and get it done. You’ll need to be autonomous and scrappy, since our full attention is on listening to users and writing good code. Meaning, we have zero interest in micromanaging you. We hire team players who contribute to our culture bottom-up, by giving each other earned praise and healthy critique.

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

For Subject Matter Experts: CDISC, SAS, custom data standards/specs, regulatory experience with the FDA/PMDA/NMPA, foreign language ability, and proven skills in consulting and thought leadership

How does Pinnacle 21 invest in employee growth and learning? 

Our industry looks to us as a thought leader in clinical data standardization. That expectation hits you too, to be keeping (and setting) the pace for professional development. We support you with training courses, mentorship, and conference attendance. Also, our product roadmap assumes capabilities we haven’t yet mastered, so you’ll have no shortage of challenging projects and infrastructure to deepen your tech stack. As we grow, we’ll spend more time cross-training each other, so expect to teach others as part of your own learning path!
