Careers At Alnylam

Join Our Team and Grow With Us

At Alnylam, we are driven by our mission to translate the Nobel Peace Prize-winning discovery of RNA interference (RNAi) into an innovative, new class of medicines. We’re motivated in this endeavor by the bravery and perseverance of people with unmet medical needs who live with rare and genetic diseases. They are the focus of our efforts, and we exist as a company because of them. That knowledge and commitment to patients is present in everything we do, every day.

At The Forefront of What’s Next

For patients

Our goal, which is well underway, is to become a world-class biopharmaceutical company that can independently develop and deliver innovative medicines based on RNAi to patients worldwide. We have a deep pipeline of early to late stage investigational therapies, and 2018 marked the approval of our first medicine—the world’s first RNAi therapeutic. Even though we’ve been around since 2002, we’re just getting started!

For employees

We are growing quickly and hiring across North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America for a wide variety of roles. We’re seeking smart, passionate, “change the world” kind of people who are ready to say, “challenge accepted.” Our 1,000 (and counting!) employees are building a diverse, inclusive, and high-performing global organization that celebrates team achievement and recognizes individual contributions.

We’re at the forefront of what’s next for patients, and perhaps your career also.

Please note: Alnylam Pharmaceuticals has recently become aware of fraudulent job recruitment postings from individuals claiming to represent Alnylam. These postings seek financial information in connection with fraudulent opportunities for employment. Alnylam never conducts its interview process via messaging apps, freelance sites, or social media platforms (i.e. Google hangouts, WhatsApp, etc.). Alnylam team members only communicate with potential candidates through an official Alnylam email address ending in “@alnylam.com.” Please do not provide any personal information if you receive a suspicious inquiry or job offer.

If you suspect any fraudulent activity or misrepresentation in connection with an Alnylam job opportunity, please report it to careers@alnylam.com.
