Hiring Milestones


Your journey with us starts with an application. Find a position that matches your skills and interests by searching our job opportunities. Assemble your resume and any other relevant materials and complete our simple and convenient application process. This should only take a few minutes of your time.

Once you apply, you’ll receive an email confirmation with the option to create a profile in our hiring portal. We highly recommend creating a profile to follow along with the hiring process and view the status of any current or former applications. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, it might take a while before you see an update from us. We are committed to keeping your portal status updated as best as we can, and we thank you for your patience.

If you don’t find the right match in our current openings, you can sign up for job alerts and join our talent community to learn about future opportunities as they become available.


Once your application is reviewed, a member of our recruitment team will evaluate your experience and skillset against the job criteria and, if a match is identified, they will reach out to you for an initial phone conversation. If selected for the screening stage, your recruiting contact will provide more specific details regarding the interview process and will be available to answer any questions you might have.


Interviews are an opportunity to get to know each other better. As we evaluate your skills and experience for a position, you will have a chance to learn more about us, our culture and our values. The interview step typically includes meeting the hiring manager virtually or in-person, as well as several members of the hiring team. Depending on the position, this process can include one or more rounds of interviews. In some cases, you may be asked to conduct a presentation as part of the interview process.


This is the final step, and we hope we’ll have the pleasure of extending you an offer! Your recruiting partner will reach out to you to discuss the details once an offer has been extended. Biogen’s compensation packages are based on skills, experience, internal equity and current market analysis. Upon acceptance of an offer, we ask you to complete a pre-employment screening process, which varies globally depending on the position requirements, job location, and local laws and customs.
