Marketing - Writer & storyteller

Location -- San Francisco, CA or remote West Coast

Genetics is the future of medicine—and Invitae is at the forefront. For decades, researchers have focused on advancing our understanding of the human genome. We've now reached the point where genetics is having a real impact on medical care. Join us as we reinvent genetic testing, bringing comprehensive genetic information into mainstream medical practice to improve the quality of healthcare for billions of people.


Invitae seeks a writer and content creator to persuasively tell our story in a variety of mediums. In this role, you will share Invitae's vision and the benefits of genetic information (as well as the process of genetic testing) with the general public, people undergoing testing, medical professionals ordering testing, and more.

What's it like at Invitae? Ours is a highly collaborative environment where you're given the freedom to approach your work in the ways you think are best. You'll work alongside seriously smart thinkers who believe that telling great stories can change the world. We also have beer on tap in the San Francisco office. And people are nice.
