It's a great place to work

2/5/2024 -
Positive outlook


Clinical Trial data is positive, total comp is fantastic, and thanks to their hybrid model, my life/work is balanced (in the office twice a week w/ paid parking). I feel like I am part of something BIG brewing!


no cons to share, all good.
Who We Are

Aspiring to Improve the Lives of Women with Cancer


Olema Oncology is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative targeted therapies for women’s cancers.


Our goal is to transform the standard of care for women living with cancer by developing more convenient and effective therapies.


 Our Lead Product Candidate, palazestrant (OP-1250)


Palazestrant (OP-1250) is a proprietary, orally-available small molecule with dual activity as both a complete estrogen receptor (ER) antagonist (CERAN) and a selective ER degrader (SERD). 


It is currently being evaluated as both a monotherapy and in combination with a CDK4/6 inhibitor and has been granted FDA Fast Track designation for the treatment of ER /HER2- metastatic breast cancer that has progressed following one or more lines of endocrine therapy with at least one line given in combination with a CDK4/6 inhibitor.


“We are committed to realizing the full potential of OP-1250, which we believe has demonstrated a clear, differentiated advantage.”  Sean P. Bohen, M.D., Ph.D., President and CEO of Olema Oncology

Life at Olema

Onto something big, together


We are made up of people who are passionate beyond measure. Each and every day, we come together to do amazing things – for each other, for science, and for women with cancer.


Strategically located in two large biotech hubs – San Francisco, CA and Cambridge, MA – we offer a flexible work environment and the best of both coasts


Our modern hybrid workplace model encourages employees to split their week between working from home and at our office, while also providing several allowances to help with both home office and commute expenses. 


While at the office, our teams build their camaraderie, opening the door for more authentic mentorship and career development opportunities. While at home, employees can make the most of their time – whether that’s picking up the kids from school, going on a mid-day run, or catching up on chores.


Through this model, we strive to offer our employees the best of both work models.


Join us on this journey!
