The Role
Veeva CDB is a clinical data platform that aggregates and harmonizes all data sources to provide our customers with clean, well-organized data that is ready-to-use faster. Gone are the days of complex integrations that limit clinical data availability, now research teams can make faster and more informed decisions.
Veeva Systems is looking for Senior Consultants who have deep data management expertise and are experienced in helping customers optimize the use of cleaning listings and reporting in running their clinical trials. You have a strong understanding of SQL and configuration (eCRFs, Edit Checks, etc). We’re looking for a Consultant that also has a level of understanding of clinical data management standards and guidelines (GCDMP, CDISC, SDTMIG, CDASH).
In this role you will be at the forefront of our mission and responsible for four main things: First, assessing customers’ data management needs and challenges, offering guidance and direction to ensure that the clinical trial is designed with the deliverable in view. Second, understanding our customers’ clinical trial protocol requirements to implement a study design with the Vault CDMS application, while adhering to Good Clinical Data Management Practices and Veeva standards to optimize value. Third, authoring all specification documents used by team members and configuring the study design during the development phase of the project. Finally, training and mentoring customers and clinical sites who are working with the Vault CDMS application or are new to clinical trials.
This is a remote, full-time permanent role with Veeva. This is a customer-facing role and we have no work location requirement if you are in close proximity to an airport and able to meet future travel requirements.
Veeva Systems does not anticipate providing sponsorship for employment visa status (e.g., H-1B, OPT)

  • Develop outlier programs to identify data that may exceed actual and logical limitations of each data element and produce reports specifying possible and probable errors contained in the data (e.g., invalid data, missing data, and data in conflict with the within- and across-record logic checks).
