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.

BioMarin’s Research & Development group is responsible for everything from research and discovery to post-market clinical development. Research & Development involves all bench and clinical research and the associated groups that support those endeavors. Our teams work on developing first-in-class and best-in-class therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with rare diseases. Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients’ lives. 


With 6 commercial products, 7 more in the pipeline and over half a billion dollars of revenue, a global footprint in 40 countries, and a personal connection to our patients, BioMarin is the recognized industry leader in rare disease development. Come work in an entrepreneurial environment where you’ll have the resources and infrastructure combined with visibility and opportunity to tangibly impact patent’s lives and the future of our company. This is your chance to be part of something amazing!
