Data Scientist

💼 About the Role

As a Senior Data Scientist, you will be our first Data Scientist hire. You will work closely with Felix (Founding Software Engineer) and our Product Designer in a three-person team to build and ship the first 'Google of healthcare infrastructure,' enabling Clinical Operations teams to confidently deliver clinical trials to the right clinics and patients based on highly curated data and AI-driven recommendations.

🏢 About Yendou

Yendou is the first Data Intelligence-empowered CRM designed to help R&D teams at life sciences companies scale and accelerate the allocation of cancer clinical trials in clinics, globally.

You might have heard this before: It takes 12 years and $800 million to bring a cancer therapeutic to the market.

But you know what the outsiders don't know?

More than 1/3 of this 12-year timeline (4.6 years) and 22% of the clinical trials costs are spent on the process of clinical trial allocation to clinics.

To solve this problem…

We are creating the first CRM for Pharma, like Salesforce, but with a list of ready-to-go qualified prospects. No more hunting for doctors or hospitals, now they are all on Yendou and companies can shorten the selection timeline by 12 months.


Yendou has raised $1.3M to date from B2Ventures, Heartfelt_, and Industry Angels.
