Karius is on a mission to conquer infectious diseases through innovations in genomic sequencing and machine learning. With a first of its kind product in the market, we are impacting thousands of patients at over a hundred hospitals a year. We are looking for a product manager to join our diverse, talented, curious, collaborative, brave, respectful, trusting, humble and highly creative team to continuously discover and evolve with us, delivering at startup pace, and healthcare quality. In this role, you will have an incredible opportunity to work closely, and at scale, with an emerging high-impact data type - microbial cell-free DNA. You will navigate the team through the full product life-cycle, from identifying the need to delivering on value. You will make sure we repeatedly hit the right targets, as we design, develop, test and deploy full-stack solutions in a cloud environment, partnering with the scientific, analytical, medical, and commercial teams.

You deeply appreciate the role each member across the broader company plays, and how it all comes together to make things tick. You believe that data is the opposite of an opinion. You are detail oriented, a great listener, and a data-hungry facilitator of responsible innovation, yet you will take the leap when one is required in order to move things forward. You are highly curious and creative, and you have already proved you have the ability to identify core problems and drive impactful product solutions all the way to the finish line. You want to make sure the time you pour into your next endeavor has the impact it deserves, and you will pursue that mission humbly.
