Roche Palo Alto is committed to innovation in discovering and developing medicines that improve the lives of people with inflammatory or viral diseases ranging from asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and rheumatoid arthritis to the hepatitis C virus and other viruses.

Our park-like campus blends the best of two worlds: the flexibility and vigor of a small biotechnology company and the resources and rigor of a large, multi-national pharmaceutical corporation.

Roche Palo Alto is one of five global research sites for the Swiss-based healthcare company Roche. Our 1,000 scientists and staff lead the discovery, development and strategic marketing of medicines to improve the lives of people affected by serious illness. We do this in a responsible and ethical manner with a commitment to sustainable development that respects the needs of the individual, society and environment.

We have ongoing opportunities for research scientists and research associates in multiple disciplines, including medicinal and analytical chemistry, and molecular and cell biology. Other key positions crucial to our success include professionals in the areas of environmental health and safety, finance, human resources, information technology, intellectual property, legal and quality assurance, public affairs and site services. We also sponsor summer internships for undergraduate students in the sciences and business.

Our compensation philosophy allows us to recruit top talent by providing competitive pay opportunities within the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. Our comprehensive employee benefit program is designed to meet competitive needs and, most importantly, the needs of employees and their families with respect to health care, death, disability, retirement, and an opportunity for rest and relaxation away from the job.

Roche Palo Alto also offers a range of on site amenities – including a fitness center, cafeteria, commuter checks program and convenient access to services such as dental care, car washes, haircuts, oil changes, dry cleaning and eWaste recycling.
