We are Driven by an Ambitious Cause

At Exelixis, our focus and commitment is clear: to launch new medicines that give patients and their families hope for the future. This calling unites and inspires us every day to accomplish all we can for patients living with cancer.

Exelixis’ Cultural DNA

Our people share a rare blend of intelligence, professionalism, humility and compassion. Everyone brings their “A” game. We genuinely care about our colleagues and help each other succeed. Over the past two decades, our resilience has been tested and proven. We have not just survived. We have thrived. We continue to approach our work with integrity, rigor, resourcefulness and speed because patients count on our medicines to give them more time with the people they love.

Be Exceptional. Excel for Patients. Exceed Together.

This is the call to action that drives our values, simply stated. We are empowered to make decisions, bring our best thinking and leverage our experience to move as fast as we can. When CABOMETYX® was approved, we had it in the hands of our first patient in just three days. Planning and speed matters when it comes to giving more time to patients.

Be Yourself and Make an Impact

Exelixis is a different kind of biotechnology company. Here people are friendly and focused. Free food Fridays bring us together weekly and dogs are welcome on campus. People create personal connections and really enjoy working together. While we are driven by science, we value every contribution that enables us to operate efficiently and serve patients.
