We are driven by and passionate about science and helping researchers around the world streamline their data analysis. Just as the Cascade Mountains meet the Siskiyou Mountain range (Where the Cascade and Siskiyou mountain ranges meet) near our headquarters in Ashland, Oregon, our team brings together two missions (1) providing the best customer and technical support in any industry to build long-term relationships with researchers and (2) designing and building tools to help researchers make discoveries to improve human and animal health. We are a group of creative thinkers who  value our rewarding work and relationships as well as self-motivation, critical thinking, constructive skepticism, and the tenacity to get the job done. (We also manage to have a lot of fun and love what we do.)

For over 20 years, the team at FlowJo, LLC has contributed to critical advances in medicine and life science through our powerful and user-friendly analysis flagship software for flow cytometry and single-cell analysis, FlowJo®. Flow cytometry is a critical tool in advances in our understanding and diagnosis of critical diseases including cancer, HIV, and infectious diseases. Cytometry is a technique which allows the simultaneous measurement of many characteristics of individual cells at several thousand cells per second, and our work revolves around the science of single cells. FlowJo® is widely accepted as the most sophisticated and powerful analysis tool in the field for the management, display, manipulation, analysis and publication of the large data stream produced by flow and mass cytometers.

In 2016, we extended our focus on single cell biology with two additional solutions for researchers, SeqGeq® and FlowJo Envoy. SeqGeq® enables scientists to analyze the gene expression of single cells and enables Hubble telescope-level understanding of gene networks and cell state. FlowJo Envoy brings collaboration, communication, and data management for scientific workflows into a cloud-based platform so scientists can advance their research anytime and anywhere.

In 2017, we joined BD (Becton, Dickinson & Company), a global medical technology company that is advancing the world of health by improving medical discovery, diagnostics and the delivery of care. We established the informatics platform and Center of Excellence within Biosciences, and look forward to continuing our strong relationships with customers. As we have always been, we are science-first and are committed to continuing to work with customers no matter what brand of flow cytometer or single cell sequencing technology they use. 

We complement BD’s multi-omics portfolio and enhance capabilities in flow cytometry as well as  genomics. We are adding best-in-class informatics and analytical solutions, which address key challenges in analysis and interpretation of data—helping researchers accelerate scientific discovery. Since joining BD, we have and continue to deliver a faster pace of innovation and releases to support single cell science, which is all in support of researchers worldwide. With our customer partnerships, CYTO research talks, or launch of the FlowJo Portal to enable FlowJo® anywhere, our focus remains the same—single cell science and helping our customers get from data to insight, and ultimately, knowledge.

Community and wellness are critical in meeting our mission and commitment every day. One mile from our offices we have access to miles of trails on which to hike and run, several national forests, lakes, and rivers.  We are part of a CSA (community supported agriculture) and enjoy fresh produce deliveries at work, and our coffee is supplied by an award-winning local roaster.  We are always looking for passionate, talented individuals who share our commitment to science and building long-term relationships and collaborations.  Please see the Careers section to see our currently available positions.
