We believe in an organic culture born out of a shared mission to be innovative and patient focused. Our scientific drive combined with our empathetic nature has created the Oncorus family. We have built a team of complementary strengths but with a common goal which has helped to create an environment of teamwork and respect.
At Oncorus we equally value our people as much as the science and we invite you to a sneak peek into our world.
Lunch and Learn
Every six weeks we host a lunch and learn to give our employees and special guests a chance to share their story and work with the rest of the company. We start with a “before I was famous” intro to learn more about the person behind the work and how their life is spent outside of our walls. This leads nicely into a discussion about what they are working on and gives the employee an opportunity to showcase their work and foster cross functional relationships within the company.
Once upon a time five people sat around a table and popped open a bottle of wine after a long day in the office and Oncorkus was born. Work/life integration makes for stronger teams and supports camaraderie, so once a month we host a themed gathering to bring the company together for some fun. Whether it’s a potluck dinner, a holiday celebration or a family outing we understand and value the importance of taking the time to be lighthearted and bond with your co-workers in an enjoyable atmosphere.
Wellness & Kindness
At Oncorus we believe in taking care of others and ourselves. Our flexible hours accommodate both the early birds and night owls and our unlimited vacation is the restorative benefit every employee deserves. While we are small we offer a competitive benefits package including a 90% company funded health plan through Blue Cross Blue Shield, company equity, a 401k plan and much more.
In late 2017 we rolled out our Wellness & Kindness initiative that includes our OncoRUN club, a company sponsored local gym subsidy and volunteer activities to give back to the community on an immediate and larger scale.
