Descripción del trabajo

In our Real-World Solutions (RWS) team, we design and deliver innovative, data– and technology-enabled evidence programs for the pharmaceutical industry. We apply scientific rigor and advanced analytics to real-world data to help our clients improve healthcare. This entrepreneurial team works within Switzerland, a global pharmaceutical industry hub, partnering with global colleagues throughout the enterprise to diagnose critical business issues and deliver evidence-based solutions.

Real- World Solutions

We are strategic thinkers, innovative technologists, deep subject matter experts and data evangelists who are passionate about driving better performance in healthcare. We are collaborative, intellectually curious, entrepreneurial and disruptive. Plus, we have the resource and structure of a large company in an environment where we empower our people to create their own solutions.

Our work can be complex and difficult but that is often the case when you are doing work that no one has done before. We also do not have a templated approach to our work so we require people who can innovate with their practice as well as their solutions.  If you have the right levels of intellectual curiosity and a passion to discover the real impact of medicines in the real world, then you’ll fit right in.
