Careers + Culture
Umoja comes from the Swahili word for unity — bringing separate components together to build a powerful whole. The most important components that we are bringing together are the people who make up our company and commit their time, effort, and passion toward bringing our therapies to patients.
Our Core Values
Culture + Commitment
Our culture is grounded in the understanding that our team is our greatest asset. We are committed to building a diverse team of people who bring an array of unique skills, backgrounds, and experiences. We respect and value the contributions of every member of our staff, no matter their title. Recognizing and leveraging our collective strengths, communicating with efficiency and care, and holding each other accountable are essential parts of our mission to extend the benefits of immunotherapy to every patient in need.
“At Umoja, we are driven by our passion to make a meaningful impact in the lives of people with cancer. Our collaborative approach and shared obsession with finding the very best solutions motivates us to confront challenges with confidence and optimism while enabling us to accomplish far more than we could as individuals.”
– Andy Scharenberg, M.D.
