About Us

Each year people are diagnosed with cancer, autoimmune diseases, chronic conditions, and more. The immune system is the ultimate determinant of health and disease; however, the immune system remains a black box. Leveraging our AI-first technology, we want to provide high-resolution understandings of the immune system to fully unlock its power. And with your help, we can do it.

From technology built and proven at Fred Hutch, Ozette is creating a revolutionary immune profiling platform to turn high-dimensional data into actionable insights. Our software is integral to our mission and enhancing insights by 10x in volume and resolution—scientists, clinicians and our teams—will accelerate breakthroughs to drive better patient outcomes.

Ozette's collaborative platform enables unprecedented transparency and reproducibility through its version controlled analysis pipeline. It is built on TypeScript and React with RecoilJS. Our in-house data visualization tools use the full range of browser features, like SVG (D3), WebGL (Regl/CandyGraph), and Web Workers, to deliver high fidelity user experience.

Our founders are leading experts in data science, computational biology, and medicine and we are backed by some of the best technology investors, including Madrona Venture Group (first investors in Amazon), Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and Vulcan Capital. If you’re passionate about leveraging technology to improve health, explore joining our innovative, creative team. Recognizing that the best candidates do not always match all criteria of the job description, we encourage you to apply if you think you would be a good fit for the role and are inspired by our mission.

  • Collaborate across teams, including UX/UI designers, engineers, product managers, scientists, and stakeholders to understand requirements and provide input on feasibility and technical considerations during the product design process
  • Set foundations both in code and documentation for the frontend to enable future builders to onboard rapidly
  • Write tests and perform debugging and troubleshooting to ensure code quality and reliability
  • Participating in code reviews and providing constructive feedback to maintain code quality and consistency
