I have SAS roles for Kite and Takeda.
Both clients have been looking for a while as they have both hired 15+ folks in the past 9 months so you will come across lots of folks already submitted. Anyone submitted since September of 2019 that have been reviewed and ruled out will not be reconsidered.
We have had the most success with placing folks with 8+ years' experience so I would like candidates with 8+ years of SAS experience
SDTM, ADaM, and Oncology support experience is a must.
We need candidates from the "output programming” side. Anyone doing data management support will not be the right fit.
