We are looking for talented, proactive people who are driven to help others, fulfill the promise of precision medicine for cancer patients, and cultivate their career path along the way. If you enjoy working in a multi-disciplinary environment, collaborating with inspiring teammates, creating and supporting products that really make a difference, we want you.
Who You Are
- A technical leader and people manager with experience leading and growing high-performing teams.

What It’s Like To Work Here
We strive for a calm environment where people can focus on the work we need to do to support our mission. We believe in giving people the trust and autonomy necessary to do their best work. Whenever reasonable, we prefer email to meetings so that people can organize their time in the way that works best for them. When meetings are needed, we expect an agenda, not a free-for-all.
We expect our teammates to bring energy, passion, and commitment to work; we also know that to do so sustainably, people need to unplug and tend to their lives at home at the end of the day.
