About Us:

At DermTech, we believe there's a better way to treat your skin, and we're using technology, innovation, and data to fundamentally change the way the world practices dermatology. We have developed technology that assesses your skin at the RNA and DNA level, so we can see signs of skin cancer far earlier, reduce the need for surgery, enable optimized treatment plans, and customize skincare plans to your skin's unique molecular makeup. We call this practice "precision dermatology" and we believe it truly is a new era in disease detection. A method that is not just better, but different. One centered around our patented smart sticker, which collects tissue from your skin's surface easily, accurately, and painlessly, and our state-of-the-art Gene Lab, which analyzes that tissue at the genomic level using a proprietary gene analysis system.

And we're seeking team members with the vision, passion, and creativity to do the same.
