Sharanya Srinivasan

Chief of Staff

SQZ fosters many values I care about deeply on a professional and personal level, namely a passion for science, diversity and helping people. I joined SQZ in its early stage, and it has been wonderful to witness the company evolve from an early start up to a clinical stage company that focuses on saving patients’ lives with science. Working in a team that values creativity, differing opinions, and welcomes new ideas is fun and nourishing.

Katarina Blagovic

Associate Director, Immuno-Oncology Research

I joined SQZ as a protein chemist in 2017. I was immediately impressed by the collaborative and welcoming spirit of the company. I have experienced many opportunities to grow and develop professionally, including the ability to laterally transition into analytical development work. The work I get to do every day with the CMC team is the most challenging and rewarding work I could ever think of.

Stephane Calmat

As an employee for over three-and-a-half years, SQZ has provided me with a work environment where I can feel challenged, grow, and be constantly motivated. Importantly, at SQZ, I've had the opportunity to actively work and lead teams advancing therapies into the clinic. I am thrilled to be a part of a team with members from all walks of life, bringing exceptional diversity to the variety of experiences and opinions at our company.

Ilker Ozay

Principal Scientist

I wanted to be a part of an organization that cared about its employees just as much as its mission - and I couldn't be happier to have found my way to SQZ. The only thing better than having a people-first culture is being able to contribute to it.
