Sr. Manager, Accounting US GL

Location San Rafael, California


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.


BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. (Nasdaq: BMRN) is a world leader in developing therapies to treat rare genetic diseases, and after almost two decades, BioMarin’s extensive research and development efforts continue to expand the boundaries of medicine. Guided by its commitment to the rare disease community, the company seeks to rapidly develop first-in-class or best-in-class therapies that will make a meaningful difference to small patient populations.

BioMarin has five commercialized products and multiple clinical and pre-clinical product candidates in its pipeline. The company’s clinical success on behalf of its rare disease patients has produced robust revenue growth from BioMarin’s existing products. The company expects to turn the corner toward profitability by achieving non-GAAP breakeven or better in 2017 and bottom line growth in the years to follow. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, strong demand and revenue growth across BioMarin’s commercialized products delivered total revenue of $955.3 million.

Today, BioMarin Finance is growing rapidly with the overall company and is developing into a cutting edge global finance organization. BioMarin has over $1B of annual revenues and operations in over 40 countries that drive significant global accounting and finance complexity.
