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.
