Values we honor and share.

At Chimera, we believe that a candidate is more than a resume. Human beings have stories, and sometimes those stories aren’t highlighted by the school you went to or the experience you have. The story lives in the middle; it is who you are, what motivates you, and how you treat others. Science thrives in an environment where collaboration and support are abundant. To create this environment, we have built a team where speaking your mind is critical, supporting your teammates is necessary, and your passions outside of work are as valued as your motivation towards our mission in the office.
