Office of the CEO
Mid Level
The Company
We are Alloy Therapeutics—a biotechnology ecosystem company empowering the global scientific community to make better medicines together. Through a community of partners, we democratize access to pre-competitive tools, technologies, services, and company creation capabilities that are foundational for discovering and developing therapeutic biologics. The company facilitates affordable, non-exclusive access for the entire drug discovery community, ranging from academic scientists, to midsized biotechs, to the largest biopharmas. At Alloy, we believe our industry should compete - and our company will succeed - when we help get the best drugs to patients in need, as quickly as possible. We believe that exclusive access to drug discovery platforms slows innovation, fails patients, and reduces long-term economic impact for investors.  As a reflection of our relentless commitment to patients and the scientific community they serve, Alloy reinvests 100% of our revenue in innovation and access to innovation. Our motto is: MAY THE BEST DRUG WIN.

Alloy is headquartered in Waltham, MA with additional labs in Cambridge, UK; Basel, CH; and Athens, GA and 82VS portfolio companies in Boston, San Francisco, Dallas and Oklahoma City.

As a team we aspire to work together to exceed expectations and collectively contribute across the global organization to always maintain our nimble, startup culture. 

This is an on-site and full-time position with flexibility to work from home. At Alloy, we have an ethos of “Mentorship-By-Apprenticeship” in all of our positions. We strive to have workers in the office when needed to interact organically and face-to-face. Of course, as a lab-based operation, our cells and animals grow 7 days a week, 365 days per year. We respect and value our colleagues for their hard work that requires them to be in the lab every day. We ask our people who have more flexible accommodations, like this position, to appreciate their colleagues who have less flexibility. We are all one team!
