How to Get Hired
We asked Medidata Solutions for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We screen candidates to determine a great fit if they are passionate about our mission: “powering smarter treatments and healthier people”. Our company has re-invented the way clinical trials are conducted. Our products and services disrupt every aspect of the clinical trial process. In turn, we are looking for people who are committed to experimenting with new concepts, testing new technologies, and are tenacious in helping our partners develop drugs that save lives.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
The Medidata website (mdsol.com) is a great place to start the process. Candidates should also see who they are connected to on LinkedIn that work at Medidata – they can provide the most up-to-date view of the company and culture. We also recommend looking at websites such as Glassdoor and other company review sites. Since we are a public company, there is ample material available about our performance and financial outlook on the internet. We also recommend reading analyst reports about SaaS and Enterprise Cloud companies.
