Mission: We were founded in 2007 to discover and develop novel therapeutic solutions leveraging hypoxia inducible factor—or HIF—biology, a primary regulator involved in multiple major biological pathways.
Everyone at Akebia is inclusive and makes you immediately feel like you are part of the team. There are many smart people that have different backgrounds, and we've all somehow all found our way to Akebia. Even though the company is growing rapidly, people know what good looks like and implement it daily. Akebia does so many of the things you want a company to do, such as communicate, have great benefits, respect life balance, and be flexible.
As we grow, it will be interesting to see how the company transforms from a learning/research organization into a commercial one.
I applied online. I interviewed at Akebia Therapeutics (Boston, MA) in April 2015.
I had a phone screening, then they asked for an in-person interview and then an offer was put together a week later. It was a pretty standard process, it wasn't particularly difficult. They're looking for fit.
Our cyclists know that one way to enjoy the beautiful weather is to bike to work! With our on-site bike storage and shower facilities, Akebia makes it easy for HIFsters to participate in Bay State Bike Week and national Bike to Work Day.
We wish all our hard-working HIFster dads a happy Father's Day this Sunday!
