At GenapSys we are working to change the world of healthcare and diagnostics. At GenapSys, we are developing a DNA-sequencing technology that will revolutionize the world of healthcare. Our system will enable fast, accurate, and ultra-low cost genetic tests in order to better understand (and ultimately treat) genetic diseases such as Cancer, Parkinson’s, Diabetes, and Alzheimer's, just to name a few. GenapSys was founded by Dr. Hesaam Esfandyarpour and incubated over 6 years (2004-2010) at Stanford University.
Our team brings together an incredibly diverse and multidisciplinary set of backgrounds and skills – from electrical and mechanical engineers to physicists, chemists, microfluidic engineers, molecular biologists, bioinformaticians, mathematicians and more. Together we will advance scientific and medical knowledge and improve human health through cheaper, faster, and more accurate DNA sequencing technologies. We are working cross-functionally to make a great impact in the world – join us on that mission!
Signal denoising is the first and one of the most fundamental pieces in our data analysis pipeline that directly influences the quality of the biological signal and in turn the overall performance of our technology. As a Signal Processing Engineer, you would be working in a cross functional R&D team to improve the performance of the core technology through close collaboration with lab scientists, genomic application scientists, and data scientists. You will develop DOE (design of experiments) for troubleshooting and failure mode analysis, extract information from biomedical sensors, develop DNA sequencing base calling algorithms, present written and oral reports and proposals to peers and management, and play an important role in shaping and productionizing new products and cutting-edge applications.
You will be joining a fast-paced startup that is getting ready to launch its first product with ample opportunity to grow, high visibility and high impact of your work. You will work closely with a very talented team, learn a broad range of skills, and help shape GenapSys’s strategic direction, and outcomes. Join us, and help make a difference!

About GenapSys, Inc.
GenapSys is introducing a new era of applied genomic testing with our GENIUS ™ DNA Sequencing System sequencer. We developed an innovative system to democratize access to genetic testing for everyone. As we enter a multi-decade era based on the use of genomics, many industries will be revolutionized such as drug discovery and diagnostics. We have developed a cost-effective, affordable, easy-to-use genetic testing system based on a proprietary technology.
Our goal is simple: Impact. We believe the tool that can read the code of DNA easily, inexpensively and accessible to anyone, is one of the most meaningful devices of the 21st century and this technology will dramatically shape the lives of both current and future generations.
We are looking for talented, hard-working, and passionate individuals to develop GenapSys’ ground-breaking DNA sequencing technologies and systems. Our work is multidisciplinary ranging from applied physics and engineering to life science and bioinformatics. We are looking for experts in circuit design, biosensors, fluidics, device design, DNA sequencing and surface chemistries, as well as business & R&D management.
We are seeking self-starters to jo...in us on our mission to change the world of healthcare and diagnostics through accessible genomic information!
