Sequence Bio is proud to announce that the company has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers for 2022.

The Newfoundland and Labrador-based biotechnology company was awarded the honour because of its commitment to employee benefits, flexible people-first policies, training and development opportunities for staff, and the company’s leadership in championing diversity in STEM. 

“We are so grateful to our incredible team of local and global experts for building Sequence Bio into one of Canada’s top employers,” says Chris Gardner, founder and chief executive officer. “Building a top SME is the result of intentional policies and practices, including diverse hiring, flexibility to support how our team lives and works, competitive pay and benefits, and an everyday commitment to our work and our team’s success.”

After doubling headcount in 2021, Sequence Bio will continue its rapid growth by adding top local and global talent to the team. The company’s mission is to discover the true signals of disease — better drug targets that accelerate the development of new therapeutics for unmet medical needs around the globe.

“We are working on something really special that has the potential to help millions of people around the world, and there is an opportunity for all kinds of talent from research nurses and healthcare professionals, to software developers, marketing experts, scientists and everything in between. We’re thrilled that our employees have decided to put their expertise and passion to work with Sequence Bio,” says Gardner.  

According to Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, small and medium businesses — or those with fewer than 500 paid employees — make up over 99% of Canadian employers. That’s more than 1.2 million companies across the country, and Gardner says Sequence Bio is committed to remaining one of the best. 

“Being one of Canada’s Top employers is not a one-and-done celebration. We have set a high bar for ourselves, and for our peers, and as we continue to grow and succeed, we’ll also keep pushing ourselves to be one of the best workplaces in the country.”
