About DermTech:

At DermTech, we believe there’s a better way to assess skin conditions, and we’re using innovation and technology to enhance precision dermatology. We have developed proprietary processes that assess skin at the RNA and DNA level, to help clinicians better manage health conditions such as melanoma. This is “precision dermatology,” which we believe brings a new era in assessing skin health.

Our tests are based on our patented methods, using non-invasive skin sample collection that begins with using our Smart StickerTM to collect a sample from the skin’s surface easily, accurately, and painlessly. Samples are tested in our state-of-the-art laboratory, which analyzes that skin sample at the genomic level. By pushing the boundaries in precision dermatology, we truly believe our technology can change the world. We are seeking team members with the vision, passion, and creativity to do the same.
