Alpine Culture

We know that the people of Alpine are what makes this company a great place to work and succeed. Alpine’s collective values and personality – our company culture – is integral to how we operate.
Alpine’s culture is:

  • Inclusive – We encourage employees to bring their authentic selves and perspectives to their work.
  • Team-oriented – We emphasize and celebrate teamwork. We recognize and reward individual and team achievements and celebrate our successes together.
  • Transparent – We share information openly, broadly, and deliberately.
  • Dynamic – We value ingenuity, creativity, and integrity. We are nimble and quick in adapting to change and challenges.

We take care of our employees with a competitive benefits package which includes premium medical, dental, and vision coverage for employees and their dependents, and FSA and 401(k) plans. We believe quality time outside the office is vital to our employees’ satisfaction at work. That’s why our flexible PTO plan encourages team members to take time off so they can come back refreshed. Alpine team members enjoy competitive salaries and equity participation (stock options).

We nurture Alpine’s culture in many ways, including all-company social events and happy hours, lunch-and-learn and education opportunities, interest groups like book club and movie nights, peer-to-peer recognition programs, a robust wellness program to help support physical, mental, and emotional health, and more.

Our office and lab are located in the blossoming biotech neighborhood of Eastlake in Seattle. Alpinists enjoy the flexibility to work onsite, remotely, or a hybrid schedule, with evolving options as we prioritize keeping Alpinists safe and healthy during the COVID pandemic. Onsite employees enjoy comfortable huddle rooms and Zoom Room-enabled conference rooms, a spacious breakroom and kitchen with a coffee bar and snacks, and rooftop access to enjoy gorgeous views of Lake Union and Gas Works Park.

With this approach, we are a nimble, courageous, creative, fun, flexible and success-driven organization.

You Are What Makes Alpine Great

“I knew I wanted to work at Alpine about 15 minutes into a 1-hour conversation with Stanford! I am a big fan of the underlying science, and I continue to be inspired by the significant benefits that bispecific therapies have for treating patients with significant unmet needs. I discovered quickly that it would be the people with whom I have the pleasure of working that I found most motivating. AIS has assembled a great collection of talented, experienced people and I feel fortunate to have these world-class folks as colleagues.”

Gary, Clinical Research

“At Alpine, I thoroughly enjoy our fast-paced work culture. I like the ownership that we all take for our work. Together we strive every day to make a difference in patients’ lives. Alpinists with great scientific minds, expertise in their respective areas and ‘one team’ attitude make me hopeful that we are empowered to have meaningful contributions in science. Apart from work, what I appreciate a lot is the fact that I am encouraged to take care of myself through initiatives like step challenge, yoga Fridays, etc. All in all, I feel fortunate to be working here at Alpine!”

Janhavi, Protein Therapeutics

“I am always amazed by how efficient and flexible we are at Alpine. I never imagined being able to run as many pharmacology studies as we do. Not only are we able to generate a ton of data, but we are also able to execute studies without mistakes. This wouldn’t be possible if we weren’t all able to work as a team as well as we do – we make it look so easy! On top of all this, there is never a dull moment. As much as we plan, a study can be taken in a completely different direction at any point. And we find the time to have fun and celebrate the achievements of one another, big and small.”
