An Insider's view of GRAIL

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Since working remotely, there hasn't been a breakdown in communication. We're collaborating on the same deadlines, and it creates a feeling of unity. Conversations happen organically at GRAIL; people are comfortable asking questions and sharing information. GRAIL demonstrates how very different disciplines can work together to change the world.

What projects are you most excited about?

GRAIL has a unique opportunity to scale our operations to add value with our early detection test. Our automation team works on the full spectrum of projects from low-level instrument investigations to overall architectures of processing facilities. I'm excited by projects that push the boundaries of lab automation, and that's what GRAIL is doing.

David Jenions

Principal Automation Engineer

What does career growth look like on your team?

Our mission, to detect cancer early, is truly seeking a needle in many haystacks. Our lab has a very complex and sophisticated assay to execute. We leverage cross-training and mentorship programs where new teammates learn the ropes from senior staff. My team sets people up for success by turning tasks into learning opportunities.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The biological problem we're trying to solve is a complex machine learning problem with human lives at stake. From a software engineering point of view, taking massive data, organizing it, building tools to mine it, and deliver results in a scalable, secure, and clinically compliant manner are areas of innovation. This, for me, is my dream job!
