At Adamas, we are driven by purpose. We put our patients first and keep them at the heart of our decisions. We strive to make a significant difference each and every day for people affected by neurological diseases, to improve the lives of care partners and families, and benefit society.

Adamas is focused on creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity and belonging. We believe that companies with employees from diverse backgrounds with different perspectives are proven to be better companies. More importantly, creating an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work is the right thing to do.

Director, Total Rewards and HR Systems

“I came to Adamas for the opportunity to help reduce the burden that Parkinson’s disease places on our patients and their care partners, and for a position that offered attractive pay and employee benefits. I stayed because I get to spend my days with a team composed of the most diverse, interesting, talented, funny, irreverent, inspired and dedicated professionals I have ever worked with, many of whom represent some of the best talent in their respective fields. Adamas has a culture in which everyone’s contribution is acknowledged and appreciated, and managers actively look for opportunities to recognize their employees for doing something great.”
