CAREERS AT BIODESIX
Founded in 2005, Biodesix discovers and commercializes cancer tests (diagnostics) that help patients and their doctors make more informed decisions about treatment based on a patient’s unique molecular profile. We’re advancing precision medicine by helping oncologists provide the right patient with the right treatment at the right time.
Unlike most cancer diagnostics, our tests require only a blood draw (instead of a biopsy, where a sample of the tumor is removed from a patient’s body) and results are available within 72 hours. Biodesix collaborates with leading researchers and builds strategic partnerships with biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to develop companion diagnostics and build our pipeline of new products.
Biodesix’ research and development activities are conducted with the highest clinical integrity, including external validation with medical experts and properly designed and controlled clinical trials. Our internal controls are designed to ensure compliance with applicable federal, state, and local statutes and regulations relevant to providers of healthcare services.
Biodesix is able to offer a broad range of medical plans, including high-deductible health plans, PPOs and HMOs. Medical plan options vary by state, and may also include regional carriers.
Dental and Vision
Biodesix offers optional Dental and Vision coverage. Dental carriers offer a high and a low national dental PPO plan and also a DMO plan in many states. Vision offers a high and low vision plan nationally. These plan options ensure that you can choose the best plan and carrier for your individual dental and vision needs. In order to select Dental and Vision insurance you must be covered under Health insurance.

“For Biodesix to excel in a highly competitive environment, we have to continually improve our value to our customers which is why I love working in the Quality department. Quality is perhaps the most important contributor to our success. Our tests play an integral role in patient care and our customers count on us to continuously deliver innovative tests and services to improve personalized medicine. I am honored to be a part of an organization that continuously works to improve our ability to consistently deliver quality tests that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations and puts Quality in the forefront of everything we do.”
“I enjoy working at Biodesix because we aim to positively impact the lives of patients with cancer every day. Whether we are discovering and validating new tests or brainstorming the optimal strategy to take new tests to market, our main goal is to always remember the patient and their needs first. With that mentality, Biodesix continues to be at the forefront of innovation in oncology while also nurturing the next generation of business leaders in the biotech space. I am proud to be a part of that team.
My job is extremely rewarding because it is my responsibility to ensure access and payment for our tests for the many patients that may benefit from their use. Reimbursement is a subtle balance of policy, clinical data, health economics, and billing – all of which are essential for a company to continue innovation and remain successful. The Reimbursement environment in diagnostics is always changing, so I learn something new every day, and that is the type of job that keeps me happy and motivated.”

“Here in Customer Support, we perform multiple tasks; interacting with Patients, Nurses, Physicians and just about every other Department in the Company.
Our primary role is to provide help and information to our customers – anything needed to help in the ordering, processing and resulting of our tests, but as with any busy customer-orientated environment, the Customer Support team are ready to assist with any situation.
The department is very vibrant and fast moving, creating learning opportunities and new situations every day that require solutions; the team is ready to shift gears and help wherever necessary. Our Department works closely with the Commercial Laboratory in processing tests and delivering timely results to Physicians, allowing for better treatment decisions that help our Patients – we pride ourselves on our un-rivaled turnaround times and care very much about fast response.
Additionally, we support our Field Sales team in providing information and assistance to help them be as efficient and knowledgeable as possible as they go about their daily jobs.
I feel personally very proud to be involved with a company that provides such innovative products that help Physicians to make better treatment decisions. It is extremely satisfying that the work we do here makes a real difference in the lives of Patients and their families all over the world.”
