Are you looking for a role with impact?

Our Regulatory team is looking for someone who wants the opportunity to be part of a growing company and is ready for the new challenges that come with it.   This role reports to, and will  collaborate and partner with, the Vice President of Regulatory and Quality.  This dynamic will create an amazing learning environment and exposure to all levels of our company’s evolution with a chance to influence and impact how we get things done.

Magenta Therapeutics is a company dedicated to addressing significant needs across all aspects of transplant medicine with a culture fueled by an amazing, passionate group of people committed to the idea of “patients first” and making a difference.

We started with an idea— Significant needs remain for patients living with autoimmune diseases, blood cancers, and rare genetic diseases. Bone marrow transplant is a potential cure for many, but its high risks, toxic side effects and complexity prevent many patients from being able to benefit. Magenta is working comprehensively to change the transplant journey for patients.

By pioneering an innovative portfolio of novel therapeutics designed to make the entire bone marrow transplant process more effective, safer and easier, we aim to unleash the full potential of bone marrow transplant for those living with a wide array of conditions such as multiple sclerosis, scleroderma, acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, inherited metabolic diseases, and sickle cell disease.
