At Formation Bio, our values are the driving force behind our mission to revolutionize the pharmaceutical industry. We approach each challenge with a combination of curiosity and a scientific mindset, constantly exploring and learning. Our commitment to care and inclusivity shapes a welcoming and transparent environment, fostering growth and diversity. These core principles guide us in our relentless pursuit of accelerating new treatment delivery to patients, ensuring that every day is maximized in our journey towards transformative medical breakthroughs.
Think in first principles
At Formation Bio, we are looking to disrupt an established industry. We interrogate decisions and solve problems from first principles – we don’t do something just because that’s the way it’s always been done. By approaching work with curiosity and purpose, we believe we can achieve results that seem impossible on the surface.
Be a scientist
Our mission often leads us into uncharted territory, where the best path forward is not obvious. At Formation Bio, we value scientists: people who are able to structure ambiguity and boldly carve a path forward through experimentation, iteration, and reflection. We problem-solve without ego and learn from mistakes.
Given our immense ambitions, the path to success will be long. We believe in caring for ourselves and others along the way by building an environment of trust, transparency, and growth. We strive to make Formation Bio a diverse, equitable, inclusive work environment where all are committed to helping each other grow and feel they belong.
Champion the mission
Our mission – to bring new treatments to patients faster and more efficiently – is our north star. At Formation Bio, we elevate the mission in everything we do: the decisions we make, the work we choose to do, and the people we choose to work with. Because when you’re developing tomorrow’s life-changing treatments, every day matters.

Senior Accounting Manager
The Formation Bio office is very open which makes it easy to collaborate and engage with different teams across the organization. People are very welcoming, supportive, and friendly. There is always a variety of different food and drinks available in the kitchen, in addition to foods that co-workers bring in for everyone to taste!
I joined the company in July of 2018. I started as a Clinical Research Coordinator and was allowed to grow and adapt into new roles as the company's business model shifted. I transitioned into working as a Clinical Trial Associate after a couple of years, and now have over a year of experience as a Clinical Project Manager!
