Be a part of a team that is inspired to make a difference for people living with rare diseases.

At Retrophin, our goal is for patients to have an opportunity to achieve the best possible therapeutic outcomes. We want to deliver life-changing therapies to people living with rare diseases, and particularly to patients with the greatest medical need – those who have few, if any, treatment options.

Giving patients a chance, providing hope, is what drives us.

Retrophin recognizes that our exceptional employees are vital to our success. We are a small, dedicated team focused on meeting the unique needs of patients. We own many aspects of the process, from applying our bench research to clinical trials to commercializing our medicines. We also have an active partnering strategy designed to align us with patient advocates, independent researchers and industry to find new and improved solutions for patients.

Our approach creates a variety of opportunities to contribute to a growing company that is doing right by our most important stakeholder: patients. Our work is rewarding – both professionally and personally – because we are making a difference and can see the tangible results in patients. And, most importantly, we are passionate about what we do.  


We are seeking talented individuals with an entrepreneurial drive who will thrive in our collaborative environment and share in our mission to help others. We are headquartered in San Diego, CA with offices in Cambridge, MA and Dublin, Ireland.
