Empower Cells to Change Lives

Our Values

Squeeze Together

At SQZ we value teamwork, trust, and transparency as critical components for achieving our mission and exceeding our goals.

Question Boundaries

We’re committed to questioning the status quo and changing the world through our people and our science.

Zap Obstacles

We strive to be pioneers. We’re resilient when it comes to navigating challenges, anticipated or not, scientific and otherwise.

Making an Impact

We want to change the world with our science, but it doesn’t stop there. We aim to minimize our carbon footprint with sustainability efforts throughout the office, and give back to our community through company sponsored service events.

Vacation Time

We value work-life balance, so we offer unlimited time off for vacations, sick days, personal days, my favorite band is in town days, my kids all have the chicken pox days, and flexibility for everything else that life throws at us.

Commuter Benefits

We have free on-site parking and many of our employees carpool daily. For the public transit enthusiast, or even the occasional rider, we also cover the cost of a monthly pass minus $10. Want to ride your bike, rollerblade, or run to our office? We have showers!

Perks for Parents

We get pretty excited about additions to the family here at SQZ. In addition to standard leave entitlements, we offer 12 weeks of paid parental leave for the birth or adoption of a child. We also chip in for a gift!

Snacks for All

We keep a fully stocked kitchen including healthy options and cold brew coffee on tap. Bi-weekly company meetings offer catered lunches and Happy Hour every Friday means you’ll never have to wonder where your next pizza fix is coming from.

Seasonal Socials

We love fun and we really like the people we work with! What better way to combine those perks than with off-site events focused on nothing but enjoying the best of every season with each other. Of course, our summer BBQ has a dunk tank.
