HistoWiz IHC Manager in New York, New York

HistoWiz is the largest online histopathology company, based in New York City. Our mission is to help biomedical researchers find cures by accelerating histopathology and enabling global collaboration.

Since inception in 2013, we have doubled our month-over-month sales, driven primarily by customer referrals. We are profitable, won numerous awards and are funded by prestigious investors, including Y-Combinator and Zhenfund.

We have just completed our Series A and are now looking to scale our business significantly in the coming years.
