Summary

Did you know that every time your doctor takes a blood sample your lab results and diagnosis can be affected by the journey your sample takes to the laboratory? This affects nearly 3 million patients annually – or 8000 patients every day - and can lead to delayed or even false diagnosis. At Motryx, we’re working on the solution. 

We’re a venture-backed company developing a subscription-based IoT platform enabling laboratories and hospitals to monitor how blood samples are transported from the patient to the laboratory. We’ve developed a hardware device which mimics a blood vial and ships alongside patient samples. When the data is downloaded to our software the laboratories gain insights that allow them to make decisions on the integrity of the batch. We’re working with customers in Europe, one of the largest laboratories in the United States, and have recently begun a project with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

We are looking for an experienced, collaborative Director of Engineering to inspire us, teach us, and advance our technical development. We have a diverse and collaborative team that values a team-first attitude, continuous improvement, and respect. We set ambitious goals, move incredibly fast and work hard to meet them while learning rapidly and having fun along the way. Everyone in our team makes significant contributions to the growth of Motryx as we build the new standard for blood sample transport. 

We are an equal opportunity employer that celebrates diversity – gender diversity is currently at 60%. We are people-centric and believe culture-fit is as important as experience/skills fit. Every day we strive to maintain a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone.
