We are a personal genomics company with a simple but powerful mission: empower every person to improve their life through DNA.
Helix is dedicated to making DNA learning accessible and actionable for everyone. We’ve been working hard to achieve our vision: creating a world in which every person benefits from their biological information and is able to help all of humanity lead better lives.
We are collaborators—scientists, engineers, designers, marketers, and more—working across two offices to solve complex challenges locked within the human genome. We are biased toward action as we strive to uphold integrity in sequencing, science, and communication. At Helix, transparency, collaboration, and empowerment drive us in all that we do.
Why join us?
- Helix is empowering every person to improve their life through DNA. We believe DNA will be digitally accessible to each person so that it can be used—at any time—to improve health outcomes and accelerate research.
- Helix’s easily scalable and comprehensive population health solution, powered by our proprietary Exome+ assay (a panel-grade exome enhanced by more than 300,000 informative non-coding regions) helps health systems positively impact patients' lives and advance translational research.
- So far we have raised over $300 million from investors like Illumina (the world’s leader in genetic sequencing equipment), Warburg Pincus, Sutter Hill Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Draper Fisher Jurvetson Growth.
Our engineers are committed to continuously shipping clean code, building simple APIs, and strengthening user security and privacy. Critical relationships are forged in Business Development, allowing us to partner with the world’s largest brands to provide an ever-growing destination of innovative applications to our customers. The Applied Genomics team pores over the latest research papers that detail new scientific findings. A few desks away, our designers work to make DNA understandable and actionable. Our lab brings it all together: running complex experiments in what will be one of the largest genomics labs in the world. Collectively, we’re brought together by the motivation to crack seemingly impenetrable problems. We seek to improve scientific understanding and enrich humanity.
But we’re also more than our work. We’re foodies and globetrotters, former pro cyclists, boba tea aficionados, and Super Smash Bros champs—and we bring these passions to the office with us.
We’re looking for people who are confident but also eager to listen and learn. Join us if you enjoy critical thinking, problem-solving, and impromptu ping pong matches. You’ll make a real impact at a growing company with a meaningful vision—and you’ll have fun.
