Based in Seattle, WA
Tasso, Inc., is a Seattle based startup that is dedicated to revolutionizing blood sampling. Our aim is to simplify the blood testing process with a medical device that allows patients to collect their blood sample at home and mail it directly to the laboratory for analysis. We’re a young company that is looking to grow quickly in the next few years.
You will be supporting many key operations of a funded, high-growth startup. You will be responsible for performing biochemical and clinical assays of blood-based biomarkers. The work will be performed in close collaboration with a team of scientists and engineers to advance medical device prototypes through our development pipeline. As a startup, other tasks you will be expected to manage include processing 3D printed prototypes and assembling devices for testing. Your role is a critical one and what you learn about startups will be invaluable.
