About Us:

Medrio creates software for use in clinical trials research. We offer a SaaS product that stands out from our competitors: 75% lower cost, setup in days rather than months and much better ease of use. Founded in 2005 and located above a BART station in downtown San Francisco, we are profitable and doubling in size annually.


At Medrio We Value:

We drink beer together on Thursdays. “Thursday beer stand-up” is an informal gathering with an open agenda where we talk about highlights and lowlights from the week. We also get together to bake cookies for our customers and have other informal but important ways to bond as a team.

We have a flywheel in our office to concretely symbolize the importance of maintaining momentum by providing great value to our existing customers.

Even though we now have more resources, we started by bootstrapping and believe that passion, perseverance and common sense provide the keys to success.

We have been profitable since 2010, and unlike some start-ups, we're never reliant on that next round of VC funding to make our decisions.

Medrio is a software company but also a health company. To reflect this, we have a wellness program that pays for gym memberships, massages, etc., and we provide healthy snacks at the office.


Hard work
"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls, and looks like work.” (Thomas Edison). Medrio is a place where hard work and results are admired and rewarded.

Improving the world
“Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.” (Horace Mann). 20,000 people die a day from cancer, and more from other diseases, so come help Medrio do our part to improve health and save lives.
