    WORKING AT SEQUENCE BIO

    At Sequence Bio, we do things a bit differently. And that makes sense, because when you’re trying to transform drug discovery, you can’t do the same old things again and again. The same goes for how we work. Working as part of the general team for Sequence Bio requires a commitment to flexible working hours and during peak project deployment, additional hours will be required. Our culture is evolving and progressive and the procedures, policies and processes we follow encourage success, foster creativity, and embrace innovation; an appreciation for the latest technology tools used in an innovative work culture is required.

    OUR COMMITMENT

    Ethics, privacy and security excellence is rooted in everything we do at Sequence Bio. We promise to be transparent about our information policies and practices, and to return benefits to Newfoundland and Labrador. All employees must uphold the company's commitment.
