What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are building a new product to help clinical trials run faster and more efficiently. I can't imagine any other opportunity that would be as impactful, especially in a time of public health crisis. Veeva has a pragmatic approach to technology, we don’t go after shiny new things, but rather focus on stable technologies that continue to evolve.

Jacob
