Careers

We have already helped thousands of dogs and their pet parents, and we're just getting started

Our Embark team
Why we do it

Embark provides the only dog DNA test that uses a research-grade DNA microarray. This allows us to provide the most accurate and comprehensive results on the market, but more importantly, it allows us to do on-going research to make new genetic discoveries. Our research is focused on expanding genetic testing, improving personalized veterinary medicine, and developing new breeding programs to eliminate preventable disease in pets.

 

Life at Embark

BENEFITS

Startup perks with big-company benefits. Competitive salaries, all-inclusive health care, and equity participation. A flexible vacation policy along with paid maternal and paternal leave. Fully-stocked office snack bar and regular office events. New iMacs and MacBook Pros. Generous travel allowances.

OPPORTUNITIES

There’s no greater opportunity than an early-stage startup. We emphasize learning and development for all employees. Grow your skills and your career as our company grows.

INCLUSIVITY

We understand the power of diversity and we welcome you—as you are—to work at Embark. We accommodate flexible schedules and the occasional need to work from home, as we all have a life outside the office. As we grow, we look forward to becoming increasingly active members of our local communities.

Where do you fit in

SCIENCE

Our science team leads our scientific development, support, and research out of our Ithaca office. We can be found designing new genotyping microarrays, inventing new ancestry deconvolution algorithms, and performing GWAS studies to identify new genetic linkages. We stay close to customers, explaining their ancestry results or the details of medical conditions, as well as working closely with breed organizations, vets, and shelters.

ENGINEERING

Our engineering team leads our technical product development and delivery out of our Boston HQ. We ensure the genetic analysis pipeline performs quickly, accurately, reliably, and at scale - no small challenge with genome-scale data. Our designers and engineers collaborate to craft the entire digital experience and make complex genetic insights easy to understand and share. Our goal is to ship working software, every day.

BUSINESS

Our business team is responsible for a wide set of critical functions and based in Boston and Austin. We fuel the growth engine at Embark, through marketing, sales, and partnerships. We oversee e-commerce and physical product, making sure that test kits get to our customers and back as quickly as possible.

We are always excited to hear from people who are passionate about our mission, even if your skills don’t exactly fit one of our open positions. You can contact us at employment@embarkvet.com
