Our new colleague Samuel Mayer Watts has recently joined ClinFlows to support us at operations. In a short interview, he reveals how he came to ClinFlows and what he enjoys most in his private life.
How did you come to ClinFlows and why?
I found a job offer on the internet that included exactly the position I wanted to have. I thought it was serendipitous and the company description sounded great and innovative, so I did not hesitate to apply and hand in my CV.
What is part of your job at ClinFlows? What are the things you take care of on a daily basis?
As Project Manager Operations, I have the responsibility of running daily operations, which means that I am the first contact for our clients that among others are major medical device manufacturers. One of my most important tasks is to understand their needs when it comes to medical image (DICOM) transfers and to tailor our platform to their individual requirements.
What did you do before joining ClinFlows’ team?
Before joining the ClinFlows team I had been working as an in-house Clinical Research Associate at a multinational Clinical Research Organization. There, I monitored sites to support them in making sure study protocol expectations were being met.
How were your first weeks at ClinFlows?
My first weeks at ClinFlows went by really fast, I hit the ground running, and was taught all the particulars of the complex system. At the moment, I am still learning, but learning by doing, which in my opinion is the best way to do so. The team was very warm and welcoming. The only thing I did not like is that I wanted to get to know everything at once.
Your job in three words?
BEST.JOB.EVER! Just kidding… I’d say: Patients. Service. Images.
Work is only half of life. What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am the proud father of two girls, and I love to spend my time with them. Next to this, I regularly practice Win Tsun Kung Fu.
What things do you always carry with you?
Since 2020, well… a mask. But my everyday carry includes my phone, a multitool, a lighter, ear buds, and a lucky silver coin.
What food could you not live without?
Since I have been living in Germany since 2012, I miss all the food from Mexico where I grew up, especially Mexican street food. But of what is available I can’t live without having Sushi occasionally, or slow cooked ribs.
What can you laugh about?
Absolutely everything! But if you would like me to be more precise: a good pun, a quick-witted response, even jokes that come with word play I find funny. Also, I enjoy watching stand-up comedy very much!
Which moment was so beautiful that you would like to relive it?
Tough question, as there are many… If I had to choose one single moment it would be my wedding day. I had been in a long-distance relationship for over 10 years to my now wife. It was the culmination of love, dedication, patience, sacrifice, and commitment that truly taught me that with enough effort and against all odds I can achieve everything of what I truly want in life.
We are looking forward to working with Sam and wish him a lot of fun with us at ClinFlows!
