What’s the vibe like in the office?

Collaborative - when I walk through the Invitae office at any time of day, I can see cross-functional collaboration in action. Our team members are constantly connecting in structured and unstructured meetings to solve problems and achieve goals.


Corporate Recruiter

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration between functional groups is key to the Logistics team's success at Invitae. Working closely with Sales, Manufacturing, Assay Development, Customer Support, Finance and QA allows us to provide better customer service by improving our processes, troubleshoot, brainstorm new ideas, learn from each other and share our best "dad" jokes.


Logistics Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity requires a break from the routine and the screen. Here at Archer the team gets creative through walks to the food trucks, lunch runs, climbing gym sessions or a few end of the week craft brews. Some of our best algorithms were developed or refined on the climbing gym mat.
