Corey finds it incredibly stimulating and satisfying to work at Counsyl, because employees are encouraged to continue their learning processes and grow professionally through their projects at work. Counsyl engineers use many programming languages like Python and Django Framework and work extensively with SciPy and NumPy libraires, so Corey finds herself constantly exposed to new parts of the code base and has plenty of opportunity to learn new languages and techniques.
Corey works with the Sequencing Team to bring new diagnostic assays online and develop and code different methods for producing the detailed screening results their customers expect. She can work from home or from the office, but throughout the day she stays closely coordinated with her colleagues on the Sequencing Team.
