Circularis is a growing company with a broad vision to dramatically impact control across all cell types. In order to execute our shared vision we are building a company that puts team above the individual.

We judge our success by our ability to stay creative and curious, with freedom to operate focused on progress versus numbers of hours spent at your desk. We are short on policy and long on personal accountability. All voices should be heard and our CEO’s door is always open to talk about any issue, personal or scientific. We seek to create better people, better work conditions, and better science.

We are building a company where we challenge each other to perform at our highest level, be transparent about successes and failures, act with a sense of urgency, and take pride in our work.

Our employees are essential to our ability to serve our customers. We make it a priority to attract, develop, and retain exceptional employees through competitive salaries, health benefits, and stock options.
