Working at Alnylam

How and Where We Work

We have learned a lot about the uniqueness of each person’s work style and preferences over the last couple of years, and so have designed how and where we work around the things that matter – like flexibility to balance all aspects of their lives and enabling our culture to thrive. Ever the science-driven organization, we will experiment, learn, and adjust. Currently, our work is categorized in three ways:


You come into an Alnylam office most days. Your role is facility dependent, such as a lab-based role, or you prefer being fully on-site.


You come into an Alnylam office regularly but work from home other days. You are likely on site approximately three days a week.


You work from home most of the time, and while you may visit an Alnylam office one to two times a quarter, you do not go into the office regularly.

Beyond our incredible scientific platform, our innovation in manufacturing, our execution with patients in mind – our commitment to each other continues to make Alnylam the most special company in biotech.
