Evolve on purpose at Exelixis
Thriving together on the West and East Coasts
Whether onsite at our campuses or remote, we show up as individuals and work together as one exceptional team to transform science into new treatments. We are building industry-leading facilities in biopharmaceutical regions of excellence on the West and East Coasts to expand our position of strength as we propel oncology innovation forward.
Our large, modern campus in Alameda’s Waterfront at Harbor Bay features state-of-the-art laboratories and community spaces that reflect our deep commitment to creating a nurturing work environment that fosters collaboration among our employees. We have expanded to Philadelphia’s burgeoning biopharma area, where we plan to grow our footprint over the next several years to accommodate as many as 500 employees in discovery, development and business operations functions.
Committed to diversity, equity and inclusion
We believe diverse perspectives are critical to solving complex problems in pursuit of our mission. To truly live our values, we celebrate our similarities, recognize our differences and create space for each and every one of us.
By supporting our employees and sustaining a diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)-centric culture, we continue to build a collaborative, welcoming environment for all.

WE ARE EXELIXIS
Working at Exelixis is more than a career-defining experience
I’ve been excited to see Exelixis’ continued growth. We’ve been focused on how we can show up best for patients, and it’s exciting to also have momentum in thinking about how we can share the foundation of who we are as a community. We have the opportunity to further define who we are, how we can support one another and what it truly means to Exceed Together.
At Exelixis, one of our driving values is that we Exceed Together, and I’m proud that our team brings one of the largest groups to participate in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. I have participated in 10 of these races and I look forward to it every year as a way to bond with colleagues and take part in a friendly, health-focused competition with other members of our community.
I’m honored to be able to serve both cancer patients and our nation in my roles at Exelixis and the Air National Guard. It might seem an odd professional coupling, but I’ve found the spirit of the organizations’ values are harmonious in encouraging excellence, service before self, teamwork and integrity.
