At Arvinas, we’re leading the creation of an entirely new way to treat disease through therapies that target and degrade disease-related proteins. We are a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing new therapeutics for cancers and other difficult-to-treat diseases. Our proprietary PROTAC® protein degraders, or proteolysis-targeting chimeras, work by harnessing the body’s own natural protein disposal system to degrade and remove disease-causing proteins.

Our leading programs are focused on high-value targets in cancer, including the androgen and estrogen receptors associated with prostate and breast cancers, respectively. Our hope is to unlock the full potential of PROTAC protein degradation by developing our own robust pipeline and by partnering with the world’s leading drug development companies.

Designed with health and wellness in mind, employees and their families are eligible for:

  • Medical, dental, and vision options, including a generous company contribution into an HSA
  • Paid maternity and paternity leave
  • FSA, HSA, Healthcare, and Dependent Care accounts
  • Company provided life insurance and short/long-term disability coverage
  • Additional voluntary benefits including critical illness, hospital care and more

Central to our organization is attracting, retaining and engaging the best and brightest by sharing in the success of our organization:

  • Competitive salaries and an annual incentive program
  • 401K matching program with immediate vesting
  • Eligibility for long-term equity incentives upon hire and annually

We believe it’s important to relax, unwind and enjoy life’s moments:

  • Paid vacation
  • A year-end office closure
  • Observed company holidays
  • Paid sabbatical upon 5 years’ tenure
