About BridgeBio

BridgeBio is a biopharmaceutical company founded to discover, create, test, and deliver transformative medicines to treat patients who suffer from genetic diseases and cancers with clear genetic drivers. We bridge the gap between remarkable advancements in genetic science in academic institutions and the delivery of meaningful medicines to patients. Founded in 2015, the company has built a portfolio of 30+ drug development programs ranging from preclinical to late-stage development in multiple therapeutic areas including genetic dermatology, precision oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, pulmonology, and renal disease, with two approved drugs.

Our focus on scientific excellence and rapid execution aim to translate today’s discoveries into tomorrow’s medicines. We have U.S. offices in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Boston, New York, and Raleigh, with small satellites in other parts of the country. We also have international offices in Montreal, Canada, and Zug, Switzerland, and are expanding across Europe.

Who You Are:

BridgeBio is recruiting for two stealth programs that are not yet announced. The first company is developing treatments for a rare disease that causes extreme sensitivity to sunlight. Patients with this disease experience excruciating internal burns after even a few minutes in the sun, and so spend their lives almost entirely inside. 
 
Our first-in-class disease-modifying treatment is in preclinical development and moving quickly - we are aiming for the first dose in humans in a little over a year. 
 
We are hopeful that this therapy could allow patients to live a fully normal life. This role will rapidly give a view of the whole cycle of drug development, from late candidate selection through clinical development within the next two to three years.
 
The second company is developing a treatment for a severe rare neurological disorder characterized by progressive ataxia and loss of cerebellar brain tissue caused by the defect of a critical enzyme. 
 
This discovery-phase program is focused on proving the treatment mechanism and identifying a lead drug to bring into the clinic to treat patients who currently have no options. This role requires a strong scientific bent as well as a business toolkit and will be in close collaboration with bench scientists to optimize and de-risk the treatment.
Responsibilities:
  • Set, prioritize and manage milestones & deliverables for team members in one or more subsidiary companies
  • Coordinate team meetings and delegate to technical experts in one or more subsidiary companies
  • Interpret, collate, and communicate critical data findings in a concise manner to senior management
  • Ability & desire to identify problems, locate the resources and find data-driven solutions independent of supervision

  • No matter your role at BridgeBio, successful team members are:
  • Patient Champions, who put patients first and uphold strict ethical standards
  • Entrepreneurial Operators, who drive towards practical solutions and have an ownership mindset
  • Truth Seekers, who are detailed, rational, and humble problem solvers
  • Individuals Who Inspire Excellence in themselves and those around them
  • High-quality executors, who execute against goals and milestones with quality, precision, and speed
Education, Experience & Skills Requirements:
  • Ph.D. or MD from top tier academic institutions or scientific undergrad with commensurate work experience
  • Operating/Program management experience working with a close-knit team at a biotech startup or top tier pharma
  • Management Consulting or Banking experience from top tier firm
  • You are patient-driven - Everything we do impacts the life of a patient
  • You have a detailed curiosity for science - (you devour journals for breakfast)
  • You have demonstrated the ability to thrive in an intense environment - whatever your background, you are pressure tested.
  • You are a master 'improviser" - so much of the drug development world is unpredictable, you must be comfortable with a significant degree of ambiguity
  • You have the confidence to chart your course - you can identify problems, locate the resources and find data-driven solutions independent of supervision
  • Unrivaled sense of urgency - like our unique drug development processes, our employees need to optimize for speed
What We Offer:
  • Patient Days, where we are fortunate to hear directly from individuals living with the conditions we are seeking to impact throughout the year and learn how we can improve our efforts
  • A culture inspired by our values: put patients first, think independently, be radically transparent, every minute counts, and let the science speak
  • An unyielding commitment to always putting patients first. Learn more about how we do this here
  • A de-centralized model that enables our program teams to focus on advancing science and helping patients. Our affiliate structure is designed to eliminate bureaucracy and put decision-making power in the hands of those closest to the science
  • A place where you own the vision – both for your program and your own career path
  • A collaborative, fast-paced, data-driven environment where we inspire ourselves and each other to always perform at the top of our game
  • Access to learning and development resources to help you get in the best professional shape of your life
  • Robust and market competitive compensation & benefits package (Base, Performance Bonus, Equity, health, welfare & retirement programs)
  • Flexible PTO
  • Rapid career advancement for strong performers
  • Potential ability to work on multiple BridgeBio Pharma programs across multiple therapeutic areas over time
  • Partnerships with leading institutions
