A Force for Good

We are Virb

Virb – Virtual Resource Bench

Virb is the first talent as a service platform. We bridge the opportunity gap for new talent in clinical research globally through innovative source, train, and deploy technologies. We believe in creating opportunities for all, promoting lifelong learning, and cultivating a passion to improve lives.

We believe that the gap between clinical research jobs and qualified candidates is an opportunity gap. Our mission is to help close that gap with state-of-the-art training and well-paying jobs with flexibility and purpose.

Employers adopting our source, train, deploy model secure a pipeline of scalable, job-ready, emerging talent tailored to their business needs. Students who qualify use us as their bridge to a guaranteed first job and a career in clinical research. Universities partner with us to provide students and alumni with experiential training that places them right into waiting jobs.

Meet The Team

Virb is led by former pharmaceutical, CRO, and technology executives with a passion for sourcing, training, and hiring in completely new ways to close the demand-supply gap in clinical research. We combine more than forty years’ experience with agile design thinking.
