What defines us

Medidata is a unique place and we’ve managed to keep consistent themes in our cultural makeup around the globe while we rapidly evolve and grow. Through our efforts to truly instill a sense of belonging, we’ve launched Employee Engagement Local Councils in each of our office locations, with a keen focus on optimising all efforts around Culture, D&I & CSR. We celebrate together and take time to have fun and socialise with each other during our annual summer, winter and halloween parties. Nearly all employees and the leadership team wear costumes and compete in global team contests for prizes. Nearly 50% of the organisation has joined a Business Resource Group of choice for both a sense of community and to be a part of something larger than just their day job by contributing to the goals of the Charter put together by the BRG that aligns with both the D&I strategy and overall business goals. We currently have 7 BRGs, Black Employees at Medidata (BEAM), Women of Colour (WOC), Women In Tech (WIT), MedidataOut,- LGBTQIA, Latinos Organised for Leading and Achieving (LOLA), Veterans and Remotians. At Medidata most employees are highly engaged in giving back to their local community and there are many opportunities with various offerings underneath our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy to do so. We invest heavily in our employees’ development in programs around unconscious bias, coaching, feedback, inclusion leadership, males as allies to reinforce the importance and value we place on building a strong culture.

What inspires us

Medidatians are committed to our mission of powering smarter treatments and healthier people and the People Team is committed to helping all of our employees have amazing and impactful experiences while at work. Regular recognition is key to our success. We provide many ways for managers to recognise employees through cash and experiential rewards such as a massage or wine tasting. We also offer peer-to-peer recognition via You Earned It which allows employees to give their coworkers points which can then be redeemed for gifts.


Medidatians love to party! We host two company parties a year at some of London’s best venues. They are an excellent opportunity to celebrate our successes and mingle with visitors from our other global offices. Our co-founders are also passionate about Halloween, which has become our largest in-office celebration of the year. Employees participate in a costume contest (winners selected by popular vote!) which gets bigger and better every year!


We take into account the whole person when we view our employee experience. Medidata is pleased to be among the most progressive companies worldwide in establishing enhanced maternity and paternity benefits. We also offer gym reimbursement, a stress counseling hotline, and employee assistance program. We strive to constantly improve how we show our employees that they matter to us and so we regularly try new programs to encourage healthy lifestyles.

Word from the top

“Medidata is a growing company, and Europe is the fastest growing market within Medidata. We are really having an impact by working together with clients, with customers, with partners, to provide a better quality of life to so many human beings. Helping our customers provide new drugs that cure cancer and other serious diseases is really something that has a positive impact on society and really motivates me tremendously day by day.

 

Every time I read the news and I see that one of our clients has launched a new drug, I’m obviously very proud and also very motivated because all of the drugs that have been developed by our partners and clients were touched by Medidata’s platform."

Career and jobs

Application tips

We don’t recruit potential Medidatians to fit our culture; we hire Medidatians that will add to our already prized culture. We find the candidates that push us to be better; we are looking for folks who have a high level of integrity and challenge our assumptions and thinking from the minute they walk into the interview and throughout their career at Medidata. Our candidates are not interested in standing still, they live life with a growth mindset; always learning to benefit themselves and our teams. Our candidates are innovative thinkers who would rather ask for forgiveness than permission. Although our candidates come to us with diverse backgrounds and perspectives, they are aligned to our core principles; Integrity, Inventiveness, Tenacity, Partnership, Inclusiveness, Nimbleness, Caring, Humility. We ask our candidates to share life and professional experiences that demonstrate these principles and these answers are our deciding factors to invite our candidates to join the Medidata team and strengthen our culture.
