You + Helix

Helix is a place where innovators and doers gather in order to drive significant progress in population genomics. We have come together to work at the intersection of clinical care, research, and genomics.  

If you’re excited by the idea of making a meaningful impact and joining a team where we pride ourselves on driving innovation through fostering an environment with an emphasis on empowering one another to grow, Helix might be the place for you!

Helix + The World

Our end-to-end population genomics platform enables health systems, life sciences companies, and payers to advance genomic research and accelerate the integration of genomic data into routine clinical care. We support all aspects of population genomics from recruitment to translational research and help our partners use genomics to improve health outcomes, increase patient engagement, and lower costs.   Leading health systems, including Renown Health, AdventHealth, and Mayo Clinic, use our population genomics platform to power some of the world’s largest and fastest-growing population genomics initiatives.

For the COVID-19 public health crisis, Helix has built one of the nation’s largest COVID diagnostic labs and has been on the leading edge of national viral surveillance efforts tracking B.1.1.7 and other viral strains.  

FP&A Director

The FP&A Director will be a key asset in both the day-to-day operations and the future growth of the company. You will spear-head Helix’s financial forecasting and budgeting process, as well as collaborate cross-functionally on special projects as they arise. As the analytical engine of business operations, you will work closely with senior management and key stakeholders to provide financial consulting and strategic support for optimal business decision making. This role reports into the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and will work alongside a team that consists of a Corporate Controller, Cost Accounting Manager, and Accountant.

As our company rapidly grows, we are looking for highly motivated individuals who are comfortable in a start-up environment with limited direction and unlimited ambition to get it done. Ultimately, we want those who can metabolize our core values to fuel discovery as we strive to accomplish something bigger than ourselves. And, of course, have a little fun in the process.
