We have openings for skilled and experienced bioinformaticians who have experience with Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS). These individuals will help design, develop, optimize and characterize new clinical assays at Invitae. Successful candidates will join a growing team that is building robust infrastructure, custom sophisticated algorithms and scalable analysis capabilities for clinical genetics. We use agile design and implementation practices coupled with the careful validation and documentation required in a clinical environment.


  • Interest in working closely with our molecular biology lab is a must
  • Proficiency in at least one of the following languages: java, c, c++ or python
  • Strong skills in data analysis and familiarity with current NGS pipelines and tools (e.g. BWA, GATK, Picard). 
  • A working knowledge of genetics 
  • Experience in the design and/or analysis of NGS-based assays, amplicon panels or microarrays 
  • Deep expertise in machine learning and statistical data modeling a plus. 
  • Ideal candidates will be intellectually rigorous, self-motivated and have significant software development experience.

Invitae envisions a world in which genomic sequencing routinely informs lifelong health care decisions. We provide comprehensive, rapid, and affordable genome sequencing and clinically relevant interpretations of genomic data. We are committed to enabling the utilization of genomic data in order to improve health, catalyze scientific and medical research, and contribute to improved outcomes for everyone.

Invitae is an open, title-free company that operates as a meritocracy. We focus intently on our ability to deliver reliable solutions that contribute to improving people's lives. We ruthlessly eliminate overhead and policies that interfere with productivity. We have excellent benefits. Our San Francisco location is in the hip SOMA neighborhood, near great restaurants.

Our office in Palo Alto is right on University Ave. Both are a couple of blocks away from CalTrain. Many of us bike or take public transit to work. We work hard during the week and we rest on the weekends.
