Prior to Absci, he was VP, Software Engineering at Denovium where he developed software solutions for the company’s deep learning AI platform.
Genomenon’s Mastermind Platform provides genomic scientists with the most comprehensive picture of human genomics, with over 23 million variants indexed, an indispensable resource that significantly diminishes the risk of overlooking evidence critical for patient diagnosis. Mastermind is currently used by some of the leading genetic testing labs and medical academic centers around the world.
As Vice President of Product Management and Customer Success Jones oversees the development of the product roadmap for Mastermind and ensures its contribution to the success of its customers.
