An Insider's view of GRAIL

How does your team reward individual success?

People grow their skills both by learning how to rapidly build scalable software systems, but also by partnering with scientists and other domain experts to better understand, model, and envision the systems we will need. We enable and empower our engineers to lead this process and grow with our systems as they make the future of GRAIL a reality.

Tristan Matthews

Senior Director, Software Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

GRAIL has a unique opportunity to scale our operations to add value with our early detection test. Our automation team works on the full spectrum of projects from low-level instrument investigations to overall architectures of processing facilities. I'm excited by projects that push the boundaries of lab automation, and that's what GRAIL is doing.

David Jenions

Principal Automation Engineer

What does career growth look like on your team?

Our mission, to detect cancer early, is truly seeking a needle in many haystacks. Our lab has a very complex and sophisticated assay to execute. We leverage cross-training and mentorship programs where new teammates learn the ropes from senior staff. My team sets people up for success by turning tasks into learning opportunities.

Maryam Hosseini

Director, Laboratory Operations

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The biological problem we're trying to solve is a complex machine learning problem with human lives at stake. From a software engineering point of view, taking massive data, organizing it, building tools to mine it, and deliver results in a scalable, secure, and clinically compliant manner are areas of innovation. This, for me, is my dream job!
