Personalized medicine is the future of medicine. We’re exploring the reaches of the latest technologies that genetics has to offer in order to potentially affect millions of lives with our services. We help finding answers to the issues that really matter: helping people to make informed decisions about their own health and the health of their loved ones.
Next Generation Sequencing and its applications are in an exponential growth phase. With the growing demand, myGenomics is rapidly expanding to keep up. At the same time, we’re still a small team. Every person who joins myGenomics will make a significant impact on how the company grows.
We look for the sort of people who don’t need a lot of supervision in order to do amazing work — and in return, we try to give them everything they need in order to succeed.

At myGenomics, we value results, not the hours spent working. We want the time you spend investing in us to significantly contribute to your personal growth as well as our growth as a company.
