Clinical Data Platform Product Manager

We’ve learned from experience that some of the best people don’t always match our requirements perfectly – if you’re interested and think you could fit, please don’t hesitate to apply.


Role can be based out of one of our three locations: Seattle, Bothell, WA or South San Francisco, CA

The Clinical Data Platform will be required to automate daily exchanges with Lyell’s clinical CRO, serve as a centralized data store (single source of truth), provide strict access control to data, enable biostatistics analytics, monitoring and analytics dashboards, and eventually enable predictive modeling and correlative studies.  In addition, one of the key differentiators for this platform will be to link clinical data with CMC (manufacturing) data to provide insights into the manufacturing of Lyell’s cell therapies, and link this information to patient outcomes.

The platform will be built on AWS, and will leverage the foundational data lake, data pipelines, and analytics infrastructure that the Information Sciences software engineering team has built.  You will be able to leverage Lyell’s cutting edge in-house team of data, analytics, frontend, backend, and DevOps engineers, and will be able to leverage UX designers as necessary.

We are looking for an experienced product manager that has a track record working with clinical trial data, and working with business, technology, and clinical teams to build software solutions that are data and analytics focused.  We are looking for people who are passionate about data and how data can help improve patient outcomes!
