Biome Analytics, a Sausalito, Calif.-based biotech company, is opening a Bend office and looking for clinical data scientists and analysts to work right here in sunny Central Oregon.

Founded three years ago, Biome Analytics creates targeted software apps that analyze hospital data regarding cardiac services to find improvement opportunities, potential cost savings and more.

Most of the company’s dozen employees are currently in California. However, Biome’s Chief Product Officer David Winter has lived in Bend for eight years and is keenly interested in expanding Biome’s presence here. The company is also currently fundraising.

“I think we can have more autonomy (in Bend),” Winter says. “I’ve worked in Portland and Seattle, and I think we have more going for us. It’s more collaborative in Bend, there’s a lot of passion and loyalty for (entrepreneurs) building a company here.”

Biome joins a small, but growing, batch of California companies who are opening offices in Bend or full-on relocating. We’ll introduce you to more in the coming weeks.
