Because we’re a pioneer in T-cell immunotherapy, leveraging our novel allogeneic EBV T-cell platform to develop transformative therapies for patients with severe diseases, including cancer and autoimmune diseases. However you contribute, you’ll play an important role in helping bring leading-edge science to serve patients. And that’s work worth doing.

The Atara team takes on meaningful challenges, so each day is an adventure. We work hard and have some fun along the way.

Diversity & Inclusion

At Atara, our shared success as a team relies on our differences and each of us bringing our whole, authentic selves to our jobs every day. It fuels our innovation, enhances our sense of purpose, and provides an environment where every individual is valued. Providing opportunities for all voices to be heard, our diverse and inclusive culture has inspired the creation of our first employee resource group, Atara Women’s Alliance (AWA), which is a source of encouragement, information-sharing and resources. And we enthusiastically celebrate various ethnic observances, Pride Month, and other events that express support and appreciation for the diversity of our clients, our workforce and the communities we serve.

Employee Engagement

In the spirit of teamwork and fun, we get together frequently for employee-appreciation lunches, BBQs, cookie swaps, lunch-and-learns, happy hours, sporting events, and guest speakers, including industry experts. We have maintained this practice even during the global pandemic with virtual team connections, including paint classes, dance parties, patient speakers, ethnic cooking demonstrations, and happy hours.

Community Involvement

We believe that a better community is everyone’s responsibility and are pleased to support many worthy local causes, including James Storehouse (which partners with local public and private child welfare agencies to assist young children and teens); Walk MS: Conejo Valley; Walk MS: San Francisco; and others.

As part of the Atara team, you’ll have the freedom to carve out your own career path, identify the mentors who mean the most to you and learn from some of the brightest minds in the biotherapeutics industry. You’ll be empowered to learn, grow and soar as high and far as your talent can take you.
