Counsyl is a health technology company that offers DNA screening for people to understand their risks for inherited disease, cancer, and at-risk pregnancies. More than just a DNA test, Counsyl has built a platform that connects doctors and patients with information that has meaningful impacts on human health.
The Digital Products team at Counsyl builds software tools that span the entire testing process for patients and doctors. These tools include: identifying patients most likely to benefit from our tests, estimating their costs with insurance, tracking progress, and helping to understand the results. For doctors, we surround our tests with online services that improve their efficiency and let them focus on what they do best: providing excellent care. This software touches tens of thousands of real people every single day at critical moments in decision making. Above all, we make it possible for healthcare companies to be both hi-tech and high touch.
We are seeking a talented and dedicated front-end engineer to develop creative web applications. We use modern web technologies including: React, Django, Python, and Postgres. We combine these with a deep understanding of our users needs, and a design approach that puts these needs above our own profits. We have fun along the way, with hackathons and hardware events, meetups and meals together.
Our goal is to make the human genome practically useful for life-altering decisions.
We've invented the Counsyl Test, a breakthrough diagnostic intended for parents planning to start a family. The test won the Wall Street Journal Innovation Award for Medicine, was named one of Scientific American's "Top 10 World Changing Ideas," and was featured in the New York Times. Our test is now prescribed by physicians for more than 3% of all births in the United States.
The cost of sequencing human genomes is plunging - over 5x faster than the cost of computing; the potential impact on preventive healthcare and the medical landscape is boundless. The science is there but the scale isn't. That's where Counsyl comes in. We are building the technology platform to make genomics useful and accessible to everyone.
