About Probably Genetic

Probably Genetic is changing the lives of patients living with severe, complex diseases. Our data platform is used by drug developers and patient advocacy groups to develop and launch treatments for these patients. Our technology discovers undiagnosed patients online, analyzes their disease state using machine learning and at-home testing, and enables compliant communication with patients. In doing so, we help patients access diagnoses, clinical trials, and treatments as early as possible.

We are a tight-knit group of hard-working, ambitious problem solvers united by a mission greater than ourselves.

We do well by doing right by patients. We’re growing quickly and our roadmap is packed with innovations in bioinformatics, machine learning, and patient-focused efforts. We are building an all-star team to help us bring our vision to life, and we want you to be a part of it.

Probably Genetic has raised multiple rounds of funding from Silicon Valley’s best investors, including Threshold, Khosla, and Y Combinator, giving us the ability to pay competitive salaries, offer great benefits, and provide meaningful equity. We’re dedicated to ensuring your journey with us is unforgettable, with incredible team retreats to places like Barbados, the Alps, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Portugal, just to name a few.
