Company

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.

QUALITY BENEFITS
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
