Change the lives
A passionate team
Together we are pioneering a powerful new approach to discover and develop novel cancer medicines, building a road map to cures that will transform the lives of patients and their families.
Tango is a team of passionate problem solvers. Our discovery efforts begin and end with patients. We are driven by urgency and compassion, empowered by collaboration, courage and a culture of excellence – determined to push boundaries with innovative science and bold decisions.
Together, we will discover transformative drugs for people with cancer by leveraging the classic principles of synthetic lethality in innovative ways. Our approaches are uncovering novel vulnerabilities in cancers with specific tumor suppressor gene loss and undruggable oncogenes, as well as discovering drug targets that reverse the ability of cancer cells to avoid immune destruction.
We’re a team. And we’re all in for exciting science and changing lives.
Here are our core values:
Change the lives
and face challenges
Push boundaries with
and bold decisions
What inspires us
“Every project at Tango begins with a cancer patient in mind. I like how that always serves as a reminder and inspiration that the science we do here can really impact patients and their families.”
“What inspires me? Imagining the day when we look back and see all the work done to help develop, advance and launch new and innovative therapeutics that have positively influenced the lives of patients across the world.”
“Tango is a fantastic place to work because it creates an environment where people feel unique and very special. All the work here is driven by passion and teamwork.”
“To me, it is personal. When I was 13, my mother was diagnosed with cancer. Today she is 73 thanks to combination chemotherapy. I appreciate the urgency by which we are bringing new transformational medicines to cancer patients. Every person deserves a chance for a long and joyful life.”
“Tango’s vibrant and intellectual atmosphere fosters thought-provoking research that brings direct benefit to patients in need. It is a great opportunity to be a part of this company and its cause.”
“It only took me a couple of hours on my first visit to Tango to realize that this team is whip smart. There hasn’t been a day since I joined that I haven’t learned something new, been challenged in my thinking and been inspired by the human-ness that pervades everything we do.”
“Tango’s team is a phenomenal group of people. One of the reasons I love my job in Business
Development is that I have the opportunity to get to know the entire team and help enable
our science as we work to bring medicines to patients.”
“I do something new every single day. I feel like Tango challenges me from every angle, and that’s made my work very important. My input matters here, and I get to have a very large ownership stake in the science.”
“What motivates me most working here at Tango is that while every therapeutic company has the ultimate goal of affecting patients’ lives, we’re different in that we have specific patient populations in mind on day one of every target discovery screen. Knowing at every step of the process where we’re going and who we’re going to help is particularly inspiring to me.”
“I’m motivated by knowing that we at Tango can make a big difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families. At Tango, we’re both patient- and science-driven. The unmet medical need for the patients is huge. I feel very confident that we’ll find a way to help them.”
“I, like many of us, am motivated by my family members who have lost their battles with cancer. We have a really devoted group of scientists here who all have a common goal. It’s very motivating for me to work with such a committed team, but the patients drive me the most.”
“Tango is answering very specifically articulated questions. Still within all of this, there’s space for innovation. It drives our creativity. And there is plenty of fun here!”
“The camaraderie feels really authentic at Tango. There are a lot of activities and gathering among people, and everyone’s really happy to be here and to do their job. Everyone’s very impressive in their knowledge and their abilities, but it’s all in a really fun environment.”
“A Tango founder once described the positive energy you feel when you’re presented with great science, an innovative hypothesis and robust data to support it. I get this sensation every day at Tango. The science is really world class.”
“Tango’s most prominent values for me are the urgency and compassion. Among the team members, we have a common goal, driven by patients. Tango is unique in that it really feels like a family.”
“I’m most passionate about engaging with Tango’s science to treat unmet medical needs. Problem-solving is what drew me to science. Our novel target discovery makes each problem we solve feel new. Discovering the new stuff makes things exciting.”
“I’m motivated every day by the standout leadership at Tango and the awesome team here. There are more opportunities in Tango’s science than anywhere else that I can think of.”
“Our goal to work together to develop effective therapeutics for cancer patients is really special. We’re doing amazing, cutting-edge science here.”
“The people here are so motivated and really well balanced, with a true ‘work hard, play hard’ mentality. It’s amazing to work with a group of people who are so passionate and focused and who really believe in the science.”
“The people at Tango are top-notch. Everyone believes in the strategy we’re going after – and above everything, everyone believes in our goal to help patients and create a new type of cancer therapy.”
“Tango is unique because of its daily energy. The people are here because they’re truly excited about the science and the work being done.”
