Are you bold enough? 

 

Your work should matter and allow you the freedom to be 100% you. We spend too much time and effort in our career to not feel excited and proud about what we do and who we do it with.  In other words, your career is too important for your next move to be just another job, so let’s work together to change the world and bring affordable medicines to all patients. 

We aren’t about a bunch of empty slogans on a wall or words on a coffee cup – you can find that in lots of places. We are a culture of individuals with diverse backgrounds and personalities. What does EQRx stand for?
