The Next Generation of Prenatal Testing
Delivering on the promise.
Natera is driven by a passion for elevating the science and utility of prenatal testing. The advent of the Information Age has created a paradigm shift in the fields of computing and informatics. Surprisingly, medical diagnostics have been slow to integrate these advances into genetic testing.
From conception to delivery, Natera is pioneering next generation accuracy and reliability with tests ranging from preimplantation genetic diagnosis for IVF to breakthrough advances in the field of non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). Using advances from the human genome project and powered by sophisticated proprietary bioinformatic algorithms, Natera’s comprehensive portfolio of tests, proven science, and experienced genetic counseling services deliver the most accurate results in the industry.
All with one mission in mind: helping families conceive and deliver.
Natera has developed proprietary technology to detect minute quantities of DNA more accurately than any other commercial lab in the world. Natera is actively applying these technologies to the area of maternal and prenatal health to revolutionize the science of supporting healthy families. The company operates a CLIA certified laboratory in California and has world wide distribution for its products.
The Natera team consists of statisticians, geneticists, doctors, laboratory scientists and software engineers from world class institutions. Our technology has been funded by six grants from the National Institute of Health and a group of private investors including Lightspeed Venture Partners and Sequoia Capital. After only three years on the market, Natera is now the leading provider of genetic testing to IVF centers in the US, and is scaling rapidly to meet the needs of other markets across the US and the world.
Natera seeks highly motivated and skilled professionals dedicated to our mission to deliver the highest quality testing and decision-making tools to patients and clinicians. Do you think you can make a difference in our quest?
Natera affords equal employment opportunities to all qualified persons. Period.

I have been working at NateraPros
I've been at Natera for about a year now and am glad I joined. I was hoping the role I signed up for would expand and that I'd get to see more aspects of the company and I probably got more exposure than I bargained for! If you sign up for something, you definitely get the chance to prove yourself. Love that I get to solve interesting problems with super smart people. Also love all the food - they changed to healthy options a couple months ago - but I do miss the salty stuff.Cons
Be careful about getting put on the spot - managers can be impatient and expect you to have answers. Worried they are expanding too quickly - my boss is interviewing people every day. There's almost zero desk space, where are these people going to fit?RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Natera.Interview Details
Phone screen by HR followed by phone interview by hiring manager and then on-site interview. The whole process took about 5-6 weeks. Little or no information/feedback provided after each step. Everybody seemed too busy and even the on-site interview felt like it was an inconvenience to people. I was given lunch but no time to eat it.
Interview questions were OK, some problem solving questions and lots of technical detail (I was asked the same technical questions in the phone interview and at the on-site interview). Didn't seem like much thought had gone into the technical aspects of the interview. The company generally appeared to be disorganized and manic.Interview Questions
