Job Description

Our mission is to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere in the world at the time it matters, enabling early detection and intervention of disease, and empowering individuals with information to live the lives they want to live.

At Theranos, we're working to shape the future of lab testing. Now, for the first time, our high-complexity CLIA-certified laboratory can perform your tests quickly and accurately on samples as small as a single drop.

Theranos' patented technology can analyze samples as small as 1/1,000 the size of the typical blood draw. Our tests are certified in our CLIA laboratory and cover a full range from blood, urine, and other samples. It's fast, easy, and the highest level of quality.

Our proprietary infrastructure allows us to perform our test analyses with unprecedented speed. So we can have results to you and your doctor in a matter of hours, not days. Which means a fast diagnosis to support better, more informed treatment.

By systematically controlling and standardizing our micro-processes, we offer tests with high levels of precision. We've also automated our pre- and post-analytic processes, minimizing human processing -- the cause of the majority of lab-test errors

Since we make it easy to measure your body's information at the needed frequencies, we can help doctors to see small changes in test results as they emerge over time. In doing so, we're working to help you and your doctor track chronic conditions and provide insight into the early detection of a broad range of medical conditions.
