At Embark, our mission is to constantly improve the lives of animals and their humans through science. We believe in breaking down the barriers between scientists and the public to unleash the power of technology to understand and improve our world. Our customers are equal partners on our journey: Their needs focus our work on making the highest-impact discoveries.
Then, we put those discoveries straight in our customers' hands quickly and with easy to understand explanations about how they impact you and your four-legged family members. Our users also provide us the raw material to make the discoveries: The data that enables us to improve dog health now and into the future. We are more Labrador Retriever than lab rat though, and so we also believe in providing users with engaging and entertaining content coupled with our recommendations: Laughter is the best medicine after all.
We believe our work is measured by the lives it impacts today. We love dogs and science and cannot stop talking about how awesome their combination is. But at the end of the day, what matters most to us is the number of lives we have impacted.
We also believe in having fun at work, and our team hasn't met a pun or a pug we don't love. And we get to work with puppies, which means we are pretty much always happy.
Ryan spent his early adult years battling heat, mosquitos, cold, altitude, broken motorcycles, and awful roads to collect dog DNA samples for scientific study. He started this company so that people will send him samples directly instead.
Adam spent his early adult years sending his little brother Ryan to awful places (and going to nice places himself) to collect dog DNA samples for scientific study. He is a little ambivalent about working for his brother.
When Harley is not on a photo-shoot or keeping the Embark team company, she can be found attempting to lick or roll in anything particularly smelly nearby.
Matt has a passion for understanding everything he enjoys and loves. He has brought that passion to many projects over the years. Once he adopted his dog Aussie, he found Embark a natural fit for his curiosity.
