About BioMarin

At BioMarin, we focus on developing first-in-class and best-in-class therapeutics that provide life-changing advances to patients with rare genetic diseases. Mostly children, our patients suffer from diseases so rare that the entire afflicted population may number as few as 5,000 worldwide. Often inherited, difficult to diagnose, and progressively debilitating, these conditions have been largely ignored — until BioMarin.

Understanding that time is critical, we develop and commercialize new treatments at a significantly faster rate than the industry average — which reflects the urgency we feel to help.

Throughout our history, our focus has remained the same: We are a place where people do work that delivers hope. We are committed to our people, our patients, and our purpose. And we are passionate about what we deliver.

More than two decades ago, BioMarin began by embracing difference – acknowledging and addressing the unmet medical needs of people with rare genetic diseases.

Today, this ethos extends across our company, where we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive community of employees.

We strive to understand, support and celebrate our differences in race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, disability and sexual orientation. We seek diverse perspectives and value contributions from those with a broad spectrum of backgrounds, education, personalities, skill sets, experiences, and knowledge.

At BioMarin, we are passionate about making a big impact on rare patient populations, and this takes the widest possible range of ideas. To find solutions for the patients we serve, our workforce must represent diversity in all its forms.


Process Sciences Intern

June 2021 - September 2021 Novato, CA
“The company was quick to accommodate to interns despite the pandemic and they did this by making the internship mostly remote. For interns that need to be on site (ex. to do experiments) it was a hybrid internship and was still mostly remote. The people were very nice and always eager to help despite having better things to do. My manager was very attentive and kind and always checked in with me to make sure I was getting the best out of the internship.”

Device Engineering Intern

June 2019 - September 2019 Novato, CA
“I was given free reign to complete my projects. Had a mentor who I was assigned to and worked with a really supportive team. Held weekly seminars with the company executives who talked about how they got to the place they currently are.”
