Medidata Solutions – Why Work For Us?


Embarking on a career with us means discovering what inspires you. We’re analytical and creative, logical and intuitive, thinkers and doers; and together we provide a collaborative environment where you can learn, develop and succeed.

Using leading-edge, open source frameworks and cross functional development methods, we’re building the services and applications that are the backbone of our cloud-hosted technology. We equip our employees with the latest technology and programming tools of their choice to help maintain focus in the office. And, for that much needed break, in addition to our game rooms, we provide opportunities to participate in hackathons, innovation time and learning guilds to help with overall employee development. In our offices, cross-collaboration is the norm, and we encourage our teams to come together, experiment with new concepts, and push our technologies to the leading edge --- i.e. mHealth platforms that bring a clinical trial to the patient's hands via their smart phone.

And, with data from over 10,000 Medidata-powered clinical trials at our fingertips (think BIG data), we’re sitting atop a trove of powerful information that we can use to transform the life sciences industry.

We understand the significant challenges faced by life science organizations and as the pressure increases to safely get new treatments to market faster and at a lower cost, so does our need for highly skilled and committed professionals. Know nothing about our industry? No problem. As long as you are passionate about helping to make the world a better place through innovative technology (and shine in a fast-paced environment that's rapidly growing), you’ll fit right in.

Join a community of highly motivated and talented professionals in an environment where you can grow, learn and have an impact.

undefinedFrom the Chairman & CEO's desk

We recognize that our customers' life science research fosters the critically important goals of bringing life-saving and life-enhancing treatments to the public, and we are proud to support this work.

Medidata’s journey started in 1999 when a scientist working on his first clinical trial waded through inefficiencies and delays—and knew that technology could improve the process. Almost 15 years later, we've grown to be the leader in clinical technology, with over 1,000 people working towards the same goal: Using the latest technology to help our life science clients bring their life-saving new treatments to the public.

With our single focus on clinical development in life sciences, our team provides applications, analytics and benchmarks that not only make the current trial process run better, but also transform it into a more efficient, productive and high-quality enterprise. Medidata is committed to providing all members of the clinical trial team—pharma researchers, physicians, patients—with the most advanced tools for planning and managing their clinical trials, generating value for clients with trials that run faster, with less risk and with fewer resources.

Welcome to Medidata Solutions.

Tarek Sherif

    Good fast paced environment, great colleagues, good work culture , friendly, and wonderful new offices. You can be sure to remain at the "cutting edge" of any thing new in clinical technologies with this Company. Expect something new everyday, and lots of excitement at all times, with lots to learn at all levels. There is a lot of communication from the top down, and the management does a great job in keeping the environment charged up


    This is a growing company, and if you move from a larger company to this one, don't expect everything to be honed to perfection. Internal systems get changed quite frequently, but in a way that's probably part of their growing up.

    Advice to Management

    Change is always good, but too much change can never be good. Focus more on core / flagship products

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medidata Solutions (New York, NY) in August 2015.


    A phone round to check the skills & your background with few technical questions. This was followed by an onsite interview, which had 4 rounds with 2 managers & 2 software engineers. 1st round with hiring manager gave a palindrome ques on white board. 2nd round database round gave a long complex sql query on white board. 3rd round was with another manager who scanned through the resume & asked about the technologies worked on in details, he also had a few oral data structures questions. 4th round was a complex problem to solve with data structures of my choice, it was probably to check my approach, interviewer was equally involved in it & again it was white board. 5th interviewer wasn't available that day & I got an early leave. Seemed like everything went well, I was hoping to get a positive response out of it. However, I haven't heard from the HR yet. Its been 2 weeks, they should at least get back with the response, whatever it is. The interview exp was really good, good environment, smart people, great location. The only drawback I would say is the HR not responding properly to the interview process.
