What 3 words describe your role?
Supportive, intriguing, and challenging.

What do you like best about working at Personalis?
The customer interactions. I like helping to address their questions and offer assistance for particular needs they may have in their project. There are also so many creative and novel approaches being taken in immunotherapy research (various drug combinations and hypotheses being studied) – it is gratifying to be a part of their efforts.

What 3 words describe your role?
Evolving, fun, and challenging.

What do you like best about working at Personalis?
I think the fact that it’s constantly changing. Part of it that there’s always room for improvement.  There are always new things that I haven’t learned before. And the fact that we’re on the frontline in terms of fighting cancer.

What 3 words describe your role?
Intense, challenging, rewarding.

What do you like best about working at Personalis?
First, it gives me the possibility to keep learning. When I started, immuno-oncology was a new field for me, and it’s been great to learn about it. This is very important to me, I’m a learning junkie. Second, my team. My team has great chemistry and that’s extremely important to me: you have to spend a
lot of time with your teammates every day. We always help each other even if everyone has different projects.

What 3 words describe your role?
Intellectually challenging and thought-provoking, sometimes frustrating (dealing with tricky bugs can certainly have that effect on software engineers), and most importantly fun!

What do you like best about working at Personalis?
Every day brings a new challenge. I also like the team culture we have going on in our software team. I believe we have a culture that enables innovation and micro leadership/ entrepreneurship within the niche areas of work. Within the first year of my career here, I was given the opportunity to take the responsibility of the full-stack and DevOps integration of one of our products, Aggregate Report Tool (aka ART). Something like this is certainly one of the perks that you don’t easily get anywhere else but in Personalis. It is very self-fulling in a way.

What 3 words describe your role?
Captivating, challenging and rewarding.

What do you like best about working at Personalis?
I’ve always been motivated to support Cancer research and treatment. Here at Personalis, apart from the facts that the team is great, supportive, and creates a conducive environment to facilitate growth and leadership (big thanks to the Harris and the team), I enjoy the open ended nature of the role and that almost every day brings forth a new challenge. One of the biggest plus points has been the opportunity to interact and work with different teams within the company, and this has given me an insight into finer details of the big picture.

What 3 words describe your role?
Exciting, rewarding and motivating.

What do you like best about working at Personalis?
I am pretty strongly motivated by the mission of supporting cancer treatment. I knew I wanted to focus on human disease-oriented research as a career. Also, I like that we’re on the cutting edge on the research and technology side. It’s exciting to be forward looking, trying to build the vision of the future. And the team is great!
