You + Ironwood
  • View All
  • You join an energized team with a singular focus on serving the needs of patients with GI diseases.

  • You join a supportive, collaborative group of people who challenge each other to think differently and to push boundaries.

  • You join a company where every employee is an owner, it doesn’t matter your title or how long you have been with the company. On Day 1, you become an owner.

  • You join an environment where equality, diversity, and inclusion are integral to who we are and our corporate values.

  • We are committed to creating an environment where you can bring your whole self to work every day. No matter your background or experience, we want Ironwood to be a place where you feel supported, challenged and empowered.

  • We believe the distinct viewpoints of each team member help develop innovative ideas that help to discover and deliver differentiated therapies for patients.

We also believe that enjoying our workplace and each other makes us more effective. Here are just a few of the things we do to make it fun!
  • Summer food trucks, organized runs and a monthly pizza party just to name a few.

  • Halloween party? Of course, what’s not fun about that?

  • A Holiday Party with lots of great food, drink and fun and a community project designed to help those in need because that is who we are.

  • We come together to help numerous charities. At any given time, we collect for food pantries, veterans' homeless shelters and disaster relief. We participate in Bio-Ball to support Special Olympics. Or you can find us reading to students at city schools and working with our neighbors in Cambridge, MA. Helping people is consistent with our mission both through our medicines and through our volunteerism. Humanity is one of our core values.

Are you someone who is motivated to help others and improve yourself, and comes to work with positive energy every day? Then you may want to apply to one of our career openings.

Ironwood is an equal opportunity employer welcoming diversity in our workforce. Equality, diversity and inclusion are integral to who we are and the values we hold as a company.


We want our employees to be healthy and happy, so we offer a comprehensive benefits program that is designed with our employees and their families in mind.

Health Benefits

Choices! Our health plans include HMO, PPO and PPO Saver plans through Blue Cross Blue Shield. We also have FSA plans to help with medical and dependent care expenses. Don’t forget your teeth and eyes – they need to stay healthy, too, so we offer programs for them. We also offer disability benefits and life insurance.

Time Off

We all work hard, and we know the importance of taking time to relax and unwind. We offer generous vacation and sick time as well as a weeklong holiday shutdown. If you just need a quick rest, we have a nap room on site.

There are generous paternity, maternity and adoption leave benefits to help with your new family.


At Ironwood, each employee is an owner – we offer equity to every employee, a matching 401(k) Savings & Retirement plan as well as a twice a year opportunity to buy company shares through our employee stock purchase plan at a discounted price. The equity comes in the form of stock options and restricted stock units (RSUs) and the employee gets to choose the percentage (100% options – 50/50 options/RSUs, etc.).


We have a free gym in the building with free yoga and fitness classes, too. We also offer a fitness stipend, if you prefer to workout elsewhere and we offer a discounted membership to Bluebikes.

And More

Education is important, but expensive, so to help you reach your goals we offer a generous tuition reimbursement program for education relevant to your job and our industry.

Dress code? We have an informal corporate culture which is reflected in our relaxed approach to a dress code. We appreciate the uniqueness of our employees and want you to be yourself at work.

We offer assistance with commuting, whether it’s by car, mass transit or bike.

Ironwood is a place where exceptional people collaborate daily to make a difference in patients lives.”
