We have a strong belief that the results of our work have potential to create positive change. But we think it’s best to hear from our employees regarding the kind of impact you can make with Atara—and why it matters.
I joined Atara because the company’s mission of transforming the lives of patients with serious medical conditions aligns perfectly with my passion for making peoples’ lives better and is the reason I pursued biomedical science as a career. Also, I’ve been interested in immunology and biotechnology since I was in college and I was very excited to join a company that is actively pioneering breakthroughs in these fields.
The thing that excites me most about my role is that it presents me with numerous opportunities to learn and grow. I am able to leverage my experience and skills to deliver consistent results and support production, while also being challenged to tackle new projects and learn new things.
I am inspired on a daily basis by the knowledge that the work I’m doing can have meaningful impact to individuals with serious medical conditions and their families, and that I am playing a part in that.
One of Atara’s values is accountability, and to me that means having the privilege of being entrusted with the ownership of my projects and my contributions to Atara’s mission. Being accountable for my work and accountable to my coworkers motivates me to work hard and makes me feel like I am an equal player in a team effort.
Atara has a promising platform for allogeneic T-cell therapy. I also see a strong commitment in Atara’s leadership team to transform the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases to improve patients’ lives. The company fosters a culture of transparency, respect, accountability, integrity, and trust while tackling the world’s most complex challenges.
My job allows me to contribute to the research and development of novel therapies that can have a meaningful impact and that means a lot to me.
Atara is a leading player in the allogeneic cell therapy field that seeks to harness the power of the immune system to develop novel treatments for patients with cancer and autoimmune diseases. The non-gene editing approach of using EBV specific T cells for allogeneic cell therapy really differentiates us from other platforms.
In my function, I get to work with talented people, constantly learning new things, solving problems, and working on the forefront of scientific discovery to accelerate innovations.
Accountability is very important to me. It means taking ownership and responsibility for each task’s completion. With accountability, growth can occur, and trust can be built toward added value and ultimately overall success.
I was looking for a fresh start at a new location. Although I moved primarily for the warmer weather, I couldn’t be more grateful for discovering a great company like Atara.
What excites me is the opportunity to help streamline the business process and workflows that can make the company more efficient.
Being with a group that is not afraid of change, and uses the latest, greatest cutting-edge technology to solve problems efficiently.
What excites me is the opportunity and potential of what Atara can and will become, by pushing boundaries in the cell therapy industry.
One of our values is Integrity. Although I feel all the values overlap and complement each other, I feel Integrity is the glue that holds them all together.
I was eager to be a part of a smaller company with a higher-level platform and to obtain experience in cell therapy.
In my specific role, I get to be on the front lines of cell selection all the way through their treatment journey.
I really enjoy the environment at Atara. The opportunity to be able to work with such fantastic professionals in the industry has allowed me to grow professionally and learn so much about T-cell therapies.
Knowing that my role at Atara can help make a difference in patient’s lives is very inspiring and rewarding to me.
This company inspires me because Atara is a company that is deeply committed to the well-being and professional development of its employees.
Atara’s off-the-shelf approach is cutting-edge science and it’s exciting to be part of a leading allogeneic T-cell company.
Integrity and Accountability. To me that means being able to collaborate and consult weekly with the cross functional teams across the Atara portfolio to ensure one common goal.
I joined Atara because I saw a unique investigational approach to targeting cancer and autoimmune diseases with advanced technology. Allogeneic T-cell immunotherapy could potentially treat different types of diseases that were hard to treat before. I want to be part of that by learning, growing, and doing my part in the development process in giving hope to patients.
Being part of the Process Development organization gives me the opportunity to design the process and characterization to be used in manufacturing.
Working in collaboration with my colleagues inspires me the most, where I can share ideas and get their feedback in a positive environment. We are the Atara-family, and we care and support each other dearly.
Atara has great values where my voice and opinion matters. I also have the flexibility to do my work that best fits my schedule. We are always included in company news, celebrations, and all-hands meetings to get current updates.
The most exciting part about our science is the technology used. Using bioreactors and high-tech instruments make our daily work exciting and adventurous. From designing experiments to using special programming to analyzing data in different ways and methods.
One of the TRAIT values is INTEGRITY, and to me that means to always have a “patients first” mentality in doing what is right. In addition, I always try to incorporate all the TRAIT values in my daily work because they all go together one way or another.
Our quest is to discover, create and deliver breakthrough biotherapeutic solutions through pioneering science, teamwork and a commitment to excellence. Yet we contribute in many different and engaging ways. Regardless of role, you’ll play an important part in helping us to realize our long-term objectives and do work of significance and impact.
