Here at Orna, we believe in the limitless potential of not only our technology but of our team. Comprised of a dedicated, unique group of individuals, we want you to join us in our mission to change the way we treat disease.

Our Values

We close the loop between science
and patients – our true impact
comes only upon success.

A circle has no limits – we push
beyond obstacles to discover new
ideas and new answers to the
challenges of meeting patient need.

Our sphere of impact extends
beyond ourselves to patients, friends,
family, neighbors, the community. We
never lose hope for a better tomorrow.

Every arc is profoundly similar yet
completely unique. Our circle of
collaboration and teamwork encloses a
safe space where we listen deeply, speak
openly, and honestly share perspectives.

We go all in. We work hard,
we have fun, we deliver on our
promises and achieve results. We
inspire each other to be our best.

Committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe in the infinite power of belonging. We cultivate a culture where people feel safe, included, and heard. Our team of Ornacorns is reflective of the diversity in the world. Here, we can be our whole selves, so we reach our full potential.
