Employee Engagement

We are committed to having an enjoyable work environment for everyone.  Our team is driven by their shared passion to help patients and their families who are impacted by devastating neurological conditions.  We understand the importance of coming together as a team and getting to know each team member on a personal level.  By playing together just as hard as we work together, we’ve created a workplace family.

Our Employees

What makes Longboard a truly great place to work.

“I was really excited to join Kevin early on at Longboard where we are focused on improving the lives of patients with devastating neurological conditions. We are building a team that is passionate and talented, as well as fun, diverse and inclusive. With team members across the United States, we foster an environment of collaboration where we thrive together, challenge each other to do better and strive to make a difference in each other’s lives as well as the lives of patients.”

Brandi Roberts
Chief Financial Officer

“At Longboard we are creating a culture that values different opinions and approaches to problem solving with an open collaboration across all levels of the organization. I am thrilled to join the company at an early stage so I can openly engage with every employee to learn what motivates them and to help them to succeed and enjoy their journey with Longboard.”

Jennifer Patterson
Director, Human Resources

“I’m really excited to be part of the Longboard team and to contribute to the development of new medicines that can make a difference in the lives of patients and their caregivers. Being a part of this team gives me the opportunity to advance my career by learning about clinical development from the people that really know how to do it.”

Celina Zerbinatti
Director, Translational Science

“I work in nonclinical development, which is the junction between the discovery side, the scientific understanding of our molecules and getting them into the clinic, and into patients. This is a really interesting place to work because from the very beginning we see these molecules working in animal models of disease. We understand the mechanisms by which they work and how the body processes them, and then we take that information and package it up for the FDA to allow us to take those into the patient populations.”

Anne Danks
VP, Nonclinical Development

“We have great team building events where all employees gather in San Diego and have fun together. In the past, we have gone bowling, built sandcastles, and gone to a Padres game. It really helps us to get to know each other on a personal level which helps in our daily communication. I have had no issues feeling like I’m not a part of the team while being a fully remote employee.”

Associate Director, NonClinical Project Management
