Working at G1

Join Our Team

Our mission is to discover, develop and deliver innovative therapies that improve the lives of those affected by cancer. We can accomplish that goal through the collective efforts of talented individuals who work together to advance scientific research. We place a premium on integrity, respect and collaboration. Most importantly, we recognize our responsibility to people with cancer who need new treatment options. These values have helped us to build a growing company that offers professionally rewarding careers with the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to cancer care.

Every day matters for people with cancer, and the opportunity to work with colleagues who are truly invested in the idea that we’re here to improve those people’s lives doesn’t come around often. You have to grab that chance.

Why am I here? The science, flat out. There’s not a lot of opportunities where you can truly make a meaningful impact on someone’s life. We’ve got that here.

I’m totally obsessed with our science. I believe in it, and we’re advancing it in the clinic. Everyone contributes to the effort, and is willing to help out in any way they can.

Science is the foundation of this company. We have great scientists who have the freedom to explore and be creative, and you need that to make strides in oncology.
