Job Description:


Would you like to be part of a dynamic and exciting team that has a direct impact on the lives of cancer and rare disease patients worldwide? SOPHiA GENETICS (NASDAQ: SOPH) was founded to generate clinically actionable insights from data to improve patient outcomes. Our mission is to provide equal access to medical insights, knowledge, and capabilities by democratizing data-driven medicine.

We observed that across the healthcare ecosystem, a vast amount of digital healthcare data is being generated, fueled by technologies such as next-generation sequencing ("NGS"). This data holds promise to accelerate our understanding of biology and disease. However, the data has remained siloed and complex and has not been fully leveraged for the benefit of patients.

We founded SOPHiA GENETICS to change this. We are unlocking data silos, leveraging artificial intelligence to generate actionable insights from data, and helping healthcare professionals work together as a community to deploy their collective expertise. Our goal is to empower clinicians and researchers around the world to practice data-driven medicine and improve clinical and scientific outcomes.
