A life-changing career

We are an organization with a commitment to advancing innovation in dermatology, a patient-centric sense of purpose, and a high level of professional integrity.

Working at Aclaris is an experience like no other. With our focus on skin and hair conditions that have few, if any, efficacious treatments, each endeavor can be meaningful.

Together, we are building a rewarding place to work for people who have an entrepreneurial drive to make a difference and where collaboration, initiative, and energy are valued.

What does it take to work at Aclaris?

People who thrive at Aclaris are visionary, skilled, results-driven, and committed. They are not afraid to take on multiple challenges at the same time. They love working with others who share their sense of purpose. Most of all, they have empathy for the people who suffer from dermatological and immunological diseases and a passion to empower patients with new options.

We expect a lot of our people because we have ambitious goals. We recognize that it’s hard work to break new ground with novel medications for conditions with no FDA-approved treatments and simultaneously build a company. Which is why we go to great lengths to make sure our employees feel rewarded, supported, and have fun.

Excellent health benefits
  • Medical, dental, and vision plans with majority of monthly premium covered by Aclaris.

Opportunities to relax and recharge
  • Three weeks of paid time off for new employees
  • 14 paid holidays

Drug discovery is in no way an easy endeavor, but the rewards are huge. I love the challenge of it and the fact that every day we learn something new scientifically. What is wonderful about Aclaris is the acknowledgement, use and appreciation of the varied skills and talents that individuals bring to the organization. Teams function well when all individuals feel valued. We have that at Aclaris.

Aclaris’s core values are based on integrity, accountability, diligence, perseverance, and discipline. These values are what I hold myself to as a tenured sales professional. I see these values throughout Aclaris. I believe Aclaris will become a market leader because of these values and our commitment to innovative therapies to address unmet needs in dermatology.
