Our mission

Sangamo is a genomic medicine company that seeks to help millions of people who suffer from severe diseases for which today’s medicine can only offer symptom management at best. Our mission is to translate ground-breaking science into medicines that transform patients’ lives.

We are at a critical juncture in both genomic science and the history of Sangamo.

Ideas that were once just hypotheses are being tested in the clinic and we are rapidly moving closer to a day when research will deliver medicines. The electricity of the moment is palpable in everything that we do. Our teams are built to enable passionate individuals to contribute to meaningful, measurable innovations that advance the field of genomic medicine and Sangamo’s success. Being impactful and developing ourselves to the best we can be collectively drives us. We encourage anyone with the curiosity and energy to be part of changing medicine to learn more about joining us.

Who we’re looking for

We believe Sangamo employees have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of transforming medicine. This demands a relentless focus on patients, the ability to put collaboration and results ahead of ego, and a drive to deliver now on our long-term commitment to develop cures for diseases, one gene at a time.

Our employees’ safety

At Sangamo, we believe that vaccination is the best way to keep ourselves and our communities safe. As a result, beginning November 1, 2021, all U.S. new hires must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide documentation, confirming their status, prior to their start date. If you are unable to receive the vaccine, you will have an opportunity to request a reasonable accommodation consistent with applicable laws. This requirement is a condition of employment at Sangamo, and it applies regardless of whether the position is located onsite or fully remote, or if it is a regular or contract role.

Our decision is grounded in the science and driven by the imperative to protect our people and sustain our research, development, and manufacturing of essential medicines for patients facing serious and life-threatening diseases. A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dose vaccine or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine has been administered.

Employee Benefits

At Sangamo Therapeutics, we are passionate about what we do and having fun while we do it. We offer several benefits and fun company activities throughout the year to reward our employees for their commitment to Sangamo’s mission.

We respect and work to help protect the health, balance and well-being of our employees through competitive compensation and benefits:

Tuition reimbursement and personal development opportunities

20 days of PTO per year and paid parental leave

HealthPlan Transparency in Coverage

Sangamo Therapeutics complies with Federal Transparency in Coverage regulations by providing this link (Cigna, Kaiserpermanente) to machine readable files related to the health plans offered to our employees. The machine-readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers to more easily access and analyze data including negotiated service rates, and out-of-network allowed amounts between health plans and healthcare providers.
