The company culture at OGT is excellent. My colleagues were all incredibly bright, engaging, and good at their jobs. I was able to learn from them and develop a range of new skills. All members of my team were encouraged to own projects and share the success of these with the whole company.
The communication could be challenging given the number of teams working on separate projects, across multiple locations.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Oxford Gene Technology (Oxford, England (UK)) in July 2014.
I found out about the opening through a recruiter, whom I contacted with my CV. When the company was interested, he set up an initial phone interview. Afterwards, I was asked to come to an in-person interview. All communication up to that point was through the recruiter. At the in-person interview, I gave a short (10-15 minute) presentation to the computational biology team, then answered questions about it and my background. Afterwards, I spoke with two senior members of the team, who asked me more about my background and interests.
