Our Culture and Benefits

Working at Kite is not just a job. It is an opportunity to push the boundaries of what is possible with cell therapy and create new paths for patients who previously had limited options.

Our entrepreneurial spirit empowers us to challenge the status quo. Delivering innovative cell therapies to people living with cancer motivates us to innovate, act swiftly, and strive for excellence every day. Teamwork is at the heart of everything we do – we are one inclusive team that operates with quality, speed, and agility.

Our global team of 4,000+ people is a tight-knit community grounded by our common goal: curing cancer.
