Invitae is dedicated to bringing comprehensive genetic information into mainstream medicine to improve healthcare for billions of people. Our team is driven to make a difference for the patients we serve.

Invitae needs engineers with a diverse set of backgrounds to enable us achieve our mission. We are a cross-functional team of scientific domain experts and dedicated, curious engineers. We build systems that take massive amounts of genomic data, combine it with scientific literature, add to it years of rigorously curated results, and package it all neatly for our scientists to consume. It’s a lot of information. As the data gets bigger, our systems need to get better and faster. That’s where you come in.

You will serve as a bridge between the ML/AI, clinical, and engineering teams to lead efforts to transform ML POC functions into product-grade features. You will collaborate with data scientists, engineers, clinicians, and product managers to make informed decisions, manage risks, and build opportunities. You will demonstrate scaled ML Deployment and MLOps experience to address complex healthcare data problems.
