Spark Therapeutics

About Spark Therapeutics

At Spark Therapeutics, we don’t follow footsteps. We create the path.

We were born of innovation, springing from the curiosity, imagination and dedication of remarkable scientists and healthcare visionaries. Our mission is seemingly impossible to others, but not to us: Challenge the inevitability of genetic disease by discovering, developing and delivering treatments in ways unimaginable – until now.

Since our founding, we have been committed to bringing a wide range of expertise to build a fully integrated gene therapy company focused on inherited retinal diseases (IRDs), neurodegenerative diseases, as well as diseases that can be addressed by targeting the liver, such as hemophilia. We are seeking talented individuals with diverse experiences, abilities and interests who have the curiosity, courage and drive to reimagine a new health care paradigm.

Join us on a journey through uncharted territory – seeking to bring gene therapy for genetic diseases to people worldwide. The resilience of the people we serve is our inspiration to break barriers, as we strive to turn genes into medicine for those with inherited diseases. Spark is a member of the Roche Group.

Know that working at Spark Therapeutics is not just another job; it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We embrace the challenges before us and the uncertainty inherent in them. Ultimately, we are working to create a world free of genetic disease.
