GeneCoda™ is an executive and professional search and recruitment firm. Our focus is US recruitment with emphasis on the Life Sciences sector including Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Medical Device and Diagnostic innovators and the service sector and tools companies that support them in bringing products to market.

Our clients work in a competitive marketplace where rewards can be great but delays and mistakes can be costly. As a natural extension of our clients, our differentiated messaging helps drive market awareness resulting in more qualified prospects.

While we are compensated by our clients rather than the Life Science professionals we place, we recognize the shared interests of each and honor the confidentiality of both our clients and candidates. We treat all parties with professionalism and respect.

We are also sensitive to the trust our clients place in us and the balance between our recruitment “off limits” list and present client base.  Therefore, we are discerning in the searches we take on at any point in time.  At search inception, we disclose potential conflicts of interest and do not directly solicit the employees of existing clients.
