Medivation – Why Work For Us?

undefinedMedivation blends a unique business model with an expert team to bring promising medical technologies from the lab bench to the patient bedside. Our enzalutamide clinical development program addresses a large market with significant unmet medical needs.

Medivation was founded by a group of experienced professionals with a long track record of working together successfully as a team in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries. We founded Medivation to leverage that expertise to bridge the medical product development gap between early-stage development and product launch.

Through our extensive network of contacts with top-flight scientists and research institutions, we acquire early-development stage pharmaceuticals and medical devices that have promising clinical, intellectual property and commercial prospects. Using the extensive development experience and expertise of our core team, supplemented by expert consultants in relevant functions, we identify and execute the strategic pathway that will allow the most rapid, efficient and effective development.

Our business strategy is straightforward:

  • Build a portfolio of four to six product candidates that have the potential to be in clinical development within 12 to 18 months after acquisition.
  • Develop those product candidates as rapidly and efficiently as possible; and
  • Consider partnering or selling successful programs to large pharmaceutical, biotechnology or medical device companies for late-stage clinical studies and commercialization.

Our talented team works diligently in pursuit of our mission to acquire promising technologies in the late preclinical development phase and develop them quickly and cost-effectively.

Medivation’s most valuable asset is its employees. Creating a work environment that is productive, engaging, motivating, enjoyable and rewarding for our employees has always been one of Medivation's highest priorities. I am proud to lead this team and will continue to do whatever I can to make our company the best workplace it can be.
—David Hung, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer

Medivation is made up of a vibrant, energized group of employees that are proud to be working for an innovative, biopharmaceutical company. Medivation’s shared culture is evidenced through the trust and passion that its employees exhibit, creating a unique community where people are committed to making a difference in the lives of patients.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medivation (San Francisco, CA).


    Met with several team members individually +HR. Questions were standard and asked more about my experience. HR said they would let me notify me either way if I would get the job. They were very good with communication until after interview. They responded twice via email saying that the team will make their final decision and asked me to be patient. I waited a couple weeks and no response so I followed up 2x after that...still no response. Why bother telling me that you would let me know either way when it isn't true?
