Working at Partek

Exciting and Satisfying

We are a come-as-you-are type of company. Jeans, t-shirts, shorts, or however you feel most comfortable. While we have a laid-back kind of vibe, we know that what we do matters. We are proud that the products we create enable researchers to efficiently study human genetics and disease relationships and make important drug discoveries, disease diagnoses, and treatments. When a customer makes a new finding, it is satisfying to say we had a hand in it and to know that their work may go on to do big things. We stand at the crossroads of the DNA revolution, cloud computing, and big data. It is exciting to be here.

Teamwork and Passion

We have a passion for what we do. We all work together, challenge, and help each other every step of the way. When a customer has a special request or a problem, we are relentless in finding a solution. When someone has a new idea, regardless of their role in the company, we will discuss it in depth. If it’s a good one, it might just be in the next software release. When someone gets stuck on something, we will talk it through. When we achieve a major goal, we celebrate as a team.

Partek is committed to its employees’ health, well being, and work-life balance. We offer a competitive compensation package that includes health benefits and 401(k) matching. We provide free daily snacks and lunches on Fridays, standing desk options, and regular social activities. Schedules are easily adjusted to accommodate personal and family needs.
