Join the Kyowa Kirin team

We are rapidly building and deploying new capabilities from bench to bedside, so that patients can benefit from important discoveries as quickly as possible. Our string of approvals, pipeline evolution, and business integration continue to drive the need for more people to join our team.

Every person here contributes to our mission. Our growth in North America relies on people who are willing to share their expertise and ideas in an entrepreneurial environment that prioritizes collaboration, innovation, diversity, teamwork, and integrity. Each member of the team plays a significant role in shaping the work we do and the results we deliver.

If who we are and what we do resonate with you, and you feel you have something to offer our team, let’s talk.


Kyowa Kirin Values

Members of our North America team explain how our 4 key values underpin everything we do - and which ones mean the most to them.


Sue Smith: The reason I joined this industry was from the patient. So commitment to life is really the most important value to me, personally. Our tagline is taking the walk of life, one life at a time. Really making sure that we're doing the right thing for the patient.

Andrew McKnight: So innovation was at the forefront of everything we do in the research labs. [00:00:30] Applying novel technologies, sourcing novel ideas from other academic institutions and bringing them into our organization.

Deborah Braccia: Of the three products that have been approved, they've all been first-in-class new molecular entities. That's innovation.

Christina Hardy: As a clinical trial manager, one of the primary responsibilities is to oversee the conduct and the execution of the clinical study. So without the integrity, [00:01:00] the reliability of the trial results could be compromised.

Marita Dazo-Jan...: So my favorite one is teamwork, but not just teamwork, but teamwork wa, because the wa part is the feeling. Teamwork is the American side of what the corporate values are, but when you integrate the Japanese wa, which to me is a feeling, that spirit of working together. That's the important one of the cultures to me.

Fiona Herr: We have to connect with all of them in every [00:01:30] project we do. Commitment to life is the core of what we do, because we are very focused on communicating the data, finding new data, getting new research for the patients. But you can't do that without teamwork, and you have to do that with integrity and then we use innovation. They're all working together in our role. Yeah.

Career Opportunities

A growing company offers employees career opportunities.


Roshni Patel (00:02): So what stands out about the opportunities that I've been given is that as the company grew, I got to grow along with it. Over my years here, I saw the regulatory affairs group grow and transition in order to support the expanding product portfolio. As I was gaining experience, I was learning more and I wanted to take on more responsibilities, as I said. When I communicated that, the leadership and management here really heard what I had to say and offered me the opportunities and resources in order for me to pursue that.When I took on my current role, I gained a lot of new responsibilities. Anything that I needed help with, if I had a question, it was almost always an open door policy. I was always able to go and ask and they'd give me advice or direct me to someone who could help me. And that really helped me be confident that I can perform and do well in the responsibilities that they've given me.


Our Employees Make a Profound Impact

Employees have the ability to make a profound impact on the legacy of Kyowa Kirin.


Paul Testa (00:01): For me the biggest differentiator, so many people here at Kyowa Kirin have been in other companies in healthcare, maybe big pharma and work just as hard but maybe don't have the same ability or freedom to drive toward that profound impact. So therefore over maybe a longer period of time, I think what happens is people's hearts are less in the work. One of the differentiators that we are striving for culturally is the ability to go and do something not because I was told to do it but because I think it's a good thing for us to be doing. That is profound impact as a working definition from my perspective, I think that ability to make a profound impact in terms of the legacy that we're leaving for the business, as well as we continue to grow is so important.
