Senior Manager, Patient Advocacy Partnerships

Remote (United States)

About Us

Healthcare can be faceless and overwhelming. But, a wave of patient-centered technology and services have begun 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 an empathetic patient focus, making it simple and approachable for patients and caregivers to find and connect to clinical trials that fit them best. 

In democratizing access to clinical trials for all patients from all 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. 

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.
