Product Management - Software & Informatics

Build products that advance biology to improve human health.

10x Genomics (NASDAQ: TXG) is one of the fastest growing biotech companies, going from $3M in revenue in 2015 to $200M+ in 2019. We create hardware, chemistry, and software that accelerates biological research. Our products are used by researchers around the world, including 96 of the top 100 global research institutions, and have been cited in over 2,000 research papers. Our mission is to build products that will be used throughout the rest of this century, to better understand, and eventually conquer disease.


Join Our Growing Team

Our Software Product Management team currently comprises five product managers and four product designers, and we'd love for you to be a part of it. Our software products include Cloud Analysis, our website, our visualization software called Loupe, our analysis pipelines including cellranger and spaceranger, software for our instruments, and much more (unfortunately, we can't fully disclose everything here!).

 

We look for product managers who are generalists, deep critical thinkers, and who get satisfaction from building complex products that do good in the world. As a Product Manager at 10x Genomics, you'll be able to build products that vastly accelerate scientific research, with a team of excellent software engineers, product designers, and computational biologists. Whether you're a Product Manager, Project Manager, Technical Program Manager, or think you might be a fit, apply!

We'll reach out to you if you seem like a good fit. For our interview process, we try to respect your time and not require you to do a giant case study. Instead, we'll ask you to complete a 20-min challenge. There are no "perfect" answers to the questions; they're purposely written to be open-ended and challenge you to think critically.

FAQs

How is this better than other PM jobs?
  1. Use your brain cells to solve the world's toughest problems. Your work will directly accelerate the speed of scientific research and disease-curing discoveries across the world, including coronavirus (Vanderbilt Medical Center has been using our Single Cell Immune Profiling Product to identify antibody genes from the blood of coronavirus survivors, and we've joined an alliance to develop antibody therapies for coronavirus.)
  1. You'll get the opportunity to make significant impact. Our environment is more autonomous than process-driven, and we focus on balanced, rational decision making.
  1. The team you’ll work with is highly productive and smart, and spans from biologists to designers to hardware and software engineers. We work with modern technologies, including Figma for design, and React, Go, and Typescript for development.

 

Could you show me cool stuff you're working on?
We build everything from hardware to software to reagents, all in-house.
Our newest product, Cloud Analysis, is a SaaS to accelerate the workflow of biologists and researchers.
We're redesigning and rebuilding our website in React. Here's a look at the speed improvements over time!
Our visualization software, Loupe, allows scientists to figure out what's actually happening.
The 10x Design System comprises configurable react components and tokens, making design and development efficient.
Our publications page lets you explore the 1,700+ publications powered by our products.

 

What's special about the tech?

10x Genomics is at the forefront of single-cell and spatial analysis. Our products are extremely popular among researchers (quote from one researcher: "Not having 10x is akin to not having a cellphone") because we allow them to better understand what's happening at a more precise level than ever before. For example, 10x technology lets you understand the precise differences between a cancerous cell (where the DNA has mutated) versus a normal cell. We're the top choice in the industry because of our system's high performance, our end-to-end hardware and software ecosystem, and our focus on customer support.

 

Who might I be working with?

On the software team, we bring in talent from inside and outside the life sciences, including VMware, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Udacity, Autodesk, OpenTable, EA, and 23andMe.

 

I need some visuals to help me imagine what it's like to work there.

We're all remote until further notice, so just imagine a bunch of Zoom videos!
But, here's what the office looked like before we went into quarantine.

We just moved into our new HQ in Pleasanton, CA (near BART!).
We have modern desk spaces that give you room to focus.
One of the many comfortable nooks around the office.
Lunch is provided for free on MWF. You can pick from many available options.
Who are your customers?

Our customers include researchers across the world, including 93 of the top 100 global research institutions (ex. Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Columbia, UCSF, and Yale) and 13 of the top 15 global pharmaceutical companies (ex. Pfizer, Novartis, Merck, Genentech, and Amgen).

 

Where are you located?

For now, mostly on the internet. Otherwise, our HQ is located at 6230 Stoneridge Mall Rd., Pleasanton, CA, a short 10-minute walk from the West Dublin/Pleasanton BART. There's plenty of free parking at HQ; very convenient! We also have a small office in San Francisco, near the Embarcadero BART station, as well as offices across the globe in Stockholm, Singapore, Shanghai, and Leiden.

 

I'm intrigued, but I need to know more. Can I email someone with questions?

Yep, go right ahead! Email Frances Yun ([email protected])
