Job description

We are a venture-backed healthtech startup supported by leading investors and scientists on a mission to improve the lives of the 400 million people around the world who suffer from genetic diseases.

Through this platform, we enable genetic testing labs to provide clear and fast diagnoses to more patients.

For this, we've gathered one of the best teams of experts in genetic data, machine learning, and business development. Our people aren't just part of a team, they're part of something bigger.
