About Us

Healthcare can be faceless and overwhelming. But, in the next few years, a wave of patient-centered technology and services will begin to transform the way healthcare is accessed, distributed, and discovered.

At Clara, we’re doing our part by building a platform that combines leading-edge technology and empathetic patient focus to make it simple and approachable to find and connect to clinical trials that fit them best.

In democratizing access to clinical trials for all patients from all socioeconomic backgrounds - while also helping research teams more efficiently reach out to and engage with the patients that they need to participate in their trials - we believe we can help make healthcare more diverse, open, and welcoming.

This is the first step in our mission to provide every single person with the easiest, most supportive and complete access to all of their healthcare options, from learning about the options they have, to actually accessing the one that is best for them, for free.

If you want to work with driven teammates to help break down the barriers that exist in today’s healthcare landscape, and if you want to work on difficult, meaningful problems that millions are waiting for solutions to, we would love to talk to you.


As a project manager, you work together with our clients, internal team members, and vendors to directly improve and accelerate clinical research by keeping our projects running at optimal quality while staying on time and on budget. This will involve managing all project deliverables, and continuously providing feedback to your team to help improve overall performance and mitigate risks.

To fulfill our mission, we partner with patient advocacy groups, innovative digital health companies, data companies, clinical trial sites, and pharma/biotech to create an innovative model that empowers patients to connect with clinical trials. You will also be responsible for managing the relationships with advocacy groups and vendors on an as needed basis for the studies you manage.
