Career progression

There is a very clear career pathway which is transparent and well thought out. It makes me feel like the importance of my career development is recognized. It also comes off as very organized and that Sano puts high value on their People.

Nice people

Everyone on the team has been so welcoming, and I’ve been able to meet several members of the team in person. It seems like everyone is very happy and also it is clear that a team of nice, interesting, diverse, and intelligent people has been created.

Flexible working

From the beginning, Sano has been supportive of my life circumstance, and has offered flexible working, which is very important and very attractive as an employee. It seems that the whole team benefits from this while remaining incredibly productive and hard-working.

Autonomy

With any growing startup we have lots of autonomy here at Sano. You can run with any idea that improves the experience for patients (which is really rewarding as you're impacting people's lives!) and you have the support of the entire exec team and managers!

Flexible working

Sano is the best company I can recommend at working flexibly. All that's cared is output and that you're there for core meetings. That can mean starting at 6am and finishing earlier or starting the day later and finishing later. Home life is really prioritised by the C suite as they're all working parents and know how much this can impact you're working life

Focus on employee wellbeing

For a Series A startup, the list of benefits we get and focus on employee wellbeing is the best I've come across. Amazing parental leave, private health + dental care, competitive salary, a genuine respect for people's personal lives. The founding team are putting so much time and effort into early hires who can scale the team and building a world class culture - so above the tangible benefits, knowing the C suite really want to build an amazing team is the best benefit of all

Meaningful work

I pivoted from higher education marketing to Sano, and I finally feel like I’m marketing a product and a service I believe in. We’re truly making a difference to peoples’ lives, and having a hand in writing the next chapter of precision medicine.

Flexible working

I have two dogs that need a lot of attention, and generally find I work best first thing in the morning or late at night. There’s lots of respect for conflicting schedules, and never any judgement if you need to move meetings to fit around your life or plans.

Growing fast

I’ve been with Sano for less than 6 months, and it feels as though there’s a new starter every other week! My role is evolving quickly, and I’m being given the autonomy to shape and define it.

Career progression

Sano is the first company I join with real opportunity to discuss the future progression from the first interview. It's an open and honest discussion with real and clear opportunity to progress in your role

Meaningful work

Sano contributes to the future of precision medicine and has a real focus on patient advocacy. Being part of this team and seeing the results of our work really is meaningful.

Family friendly

When I joined Sano I was pregnant 5 months, the whole team help me to plan the before, during and after maternity leave. I always felt supported and being able to balance my family and work life without stress.

Supportive management

Inexperienced first time founders, but developing a strong culture of supporting employees that works for a range of backgrounds and lifestyles at various career stages. Be that parents, digital nomads, part timers, or geographically distributed team members.

Flexible working

Fully remote a distribution organisation with a range of resources available to support a workplace that works for each individual. Be that a home office, co-working space, or something else. Supports people working hours that suit them, and can be varied around their lives when necessary.

Autonomy

Empowers employees to take initiative and deliver project they see as important to the company. And acknowledge and reward such ways if working, both within and between teams.

Meaningful work

Sano is a very mission-drive organization with a focus on ensuring the right experience for our users. The focus on putting our users first comes from the top and permeates everything we do as a team. It's a fantastic place to work for anyone looking to make a meaningful contribution to this industry.

Focus on employee wellbeing

From the moment I began conversations about joining Sano, I knew the leadership team was unlike any I had encountered before. From a focus on personal growth, meaningful time off, and manageable workloads, to well-timed, personalized "thank you" or "thinking about you" gifts, the team has maintained its culture while more than doubling in size since I joined.

My opinions are valued

Sano is a wonderful place to work for anyone looking to collaborate with well-intentioned, kind, and growth-minded individuals. There are truly no egos on the team to manage and everyone's opinion matters and is valued.

Intelligent people

Everyone at the Sano team is smart and driven. The team is passionate about the company mission, and there's a real sense of camaraderie around achieving our goals as a team. Not only that, everyone on the team is incredibly nice and fun to work with.

Team energy

While we are a completely remote company, with some in person days from time to time, it doesn't feel like that at all. The energy that has been created and maintained by everyone is one of togetherness and getting things done. Because of this, we get all the perks of remote work without feeling like we're far apart.

Open and honest communication

One of the things that most surprises people when they join is how open we are as a company. This resonates from the leadership all the way down to how we work at an individual level. The exec team are so open about the company strategy and the challenges and opportunities we have ahead. You can easily drop into any meetings if you are interested in the topic, and nothing is behind closed doors. At an individual level, this means that lots of members in the team get involved cross-functionally to understand the company and feedback from anyone is always valued highly - whether they are a specialist in that field or if they just noticed something that needs digging deeper.

Opportunities to learn

Sano Genetics has a really strong team who are willing to support and mentor others. I had no experience working with Genetics data or Bioinformatics before joining and the team have been very supportive and taken the time to help me get up to speed. This has completely alleviated any concerns I had about lacking industry knowledge and the team has done everything possible to help me understand out customers and markets.

Flexible working

Sano truly lives by its "Flexible Working" claims - The team are super flexible around working hours. I finish early some days and start late others and everyone is really accommodating. Provided you communicate your plans and set expectations with teams flexible working isn't an issue.

Innovative product

The leadership team at Sano Genetics have a really strong vision for the future of the organisation. The product is directly solving an industry problem and the feedback from customers is overwhelmingly positive! Helping to break down barriers between participants and study providers.

Open and honest communication

At Sano, our weekly all-hands are rotated across departments. Information that typically wouldn't be in other businesses is shared in these. Everything is open and questions are encouraged.

Inspiring mission

At Sano, we believe contributing to research should be engaging, supportive, and meaningful for participants. We building ways to connect people to research opportunities that support the future of personalized medicine through genetic testing.

Nice people

The people at Sano are awesome. I was made to feel welcome even before day one by being invited to the Xmas get-together. This has continued both in the team working environment and our regular meet-ups.
