Nothing is more critical to our success than the quality of our team. And providing our employees with many opportunities to experience professional, personal, and financial growth is the surest way we know to stay at the leading edge of biologics development.

We offer a comprehensive compensation package, which includes competitive salaries, generous benefits, an outstanding work environment, and excellent opportunities for professional growth. We also regularly benchmark our compensation packages against leading biotechnology and high-tech companies to ensure that our team enjoys the most competitive benefits possible.


    In addition to receiving competitive salary packages, employees at Zymeworks are also given the opportunity to share in the success of the company through our employee equity program. Extending options to all permanent employees of the company is one of the cornerstones of our compensation policy. Additionally, employees may participate in our employee stock purchase program, as well as a retirement savings program that includes a company match.

    Finally, we understand the importance of recognizing top performance. The annual performance and salary review process at Zymeworks give us the opportunity to reward employees for their outstanding achievements.

By providing our employees with the assurance of these benefits, we help to ensure that our employees enjoy good health, peace of mind, and the ability to balance the demands of life and work.
