Our client is an international consulting company providing specialized services to the pharmaceutical industry. The company has a relaxed and flexible working environment and very highly skilled colleagues, including industry experts in CDISC advisory services and statistical programming. Due to rapid growth and an increase in consulting engagements, the company is expanding their team of programmers with expertise in SAS and CDISC.

Other tasks could include:
- SDTM and ADaM data standard implementation
- TFL production, mostly using proc report and SAS Graph/GTL
- Co-ordination of remote programmer teams
Most of the customers are pharmaceutical companies in the Copenhagen area, but many of the consultants come from other cities around Europe, and have re-located due to the excellent opportunities in and around Copenhagen.
