Embark Company Overview

Embark offers the most comprehensive dog DNA test on the market.

An Embark dog DNA test enables a pet owner to learn about their dog’s breed, ancestry, health, and more with a simple cheek swab. The company offers the most accurate results by using 100 times more genetic information than any other test available. Pet owners can potentially extend their dog's lifespan by using Embark, which tests for over 170 genetic health conditions.

Launched by two brothers, the company is an official research partner with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and has a mission to end preventable disease in dogs.

Where do you fit in

SCIENCE

Our science team leads our scientific development, support, and research out of our Ithaca office. We can be found designing new genotyping microarrays, inventing new ancestry deconvolution algorithms, and performing GWAS studies to identify new genetic linkages. We stay close to customers, explaining their ancestry results or the details of medical conditions, as well as working closely with breed organizations, vets, and shelters.

ENGINEERING

Our engineering team leads our technical product development and delivery out of our Boston HQ. We ensure the genetic analysis pipeline performs quickly, accurately, reliably, and at scale - no small challenge with genome-scale data. Our designers and engineers collaborate to craft the entire digital experience and make complex genetic insights easy to understand and share. Our goal is to ship working software, every day.

BUSINESS

Our business team is responsible for a wide set of critical functions and based in Boston and Austin. We fuel the growth engine at Embark, through marketing, sales, and partnerships. We oversee e-commerce and physical product, making sure that test kits get to our customers and back as quickly as possible.
