When I applied to Congenica, I suspected that my lack of a scientific/genomic background would preclude me from the role, or that it might not pay market rates for my skillset. I was sold on the industry and goals of the platform and company though, so I took a chance.
At the interview, everyone I met was approachable and focussed, but also seemed like they’d be fun to work with.
Since joining over 2 years ago, I can honestly say that it’s one of the most interesting, challenging and rewarding roles I’ve had. I believe in the company now more than ever, and I’m glad that I was right about the people and wrong about the rest.
