Job/Internship Description

BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.

BioMarin's Commercial organization supports our global sales and marketing efforts around the world. Our global sales force continues to solidify the company's commercial presence in the United States and Europe and is rapidly growing in other regions, such as Latin America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients' lives.

The Pipeline Commercialization team leads commercial planning and market preparation activities for BioMarin's pipeline programs by providing objective, in-depth information on current and future markets, customers and competitors. The Pipeline Commercialization team identifies critical business issues and opportunities for growth around the world, collaborates with commercial/cross-functional teams, and drives strategies to set the direction for the products. For our pipeline programs, Pipeline Commercialization partners with development teams, leads commercial strategic development, and executes pre-launch tactics.

The Pipeline Commercialization summer intern will work on 1 major project and 1-2 minor projects over the 3-month internship. Projects will be matched with the candidate's skills and interests.
