Project Description


BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind. 

By providing a foundation for all operations company wide, BioMarin’s General and Administrative teams support our mission of providing first and best in class therapeutics to patients who live with rare diseases. Our teams include groups such as finance, legal, human resources, corporate compliance and ethics, and information technology. Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients’ lives.

Work on a variety of corporate and product strategy projects.  Examples of these projects include portfolio strategy meetings; annual board of directors’ strategy meeting; R&D strategy/portfolio; product long-term planning; analysis of alternative indications/scenarios for pipeline products; and in-licensed product diligence and integration.

Provide and direct global CI deliverables for development stage programs, Research projects and Business Development opportunities. Examples include competitive landscape assessments; ongoing monitoring and conference coverage; incorporation of insights to ensure competitive strategic plans for the programs
