Working together on new therapeutic options for hemophilia

For the benefit of patients: Bayer is expanding manufacturing capacity for its new recombinant Factor VIII (rFVIII) therapies at its sites in Wuppertal and Leverkusen, Germany, to offer innovative treatment options to hemophilia A patients. The company is investing more than €500 million in these projects and needs to staff a variety of challenging positions. This is your chance: join us and help to improve the lives of patients around the world.

Some 400,000 people around the world are affected by hemophilia A. Their blood cannot clot properly due to a deficiency or a defect in coagulation factor VIII (rFVIII). People with this disorder suffer repeated episodes of bleeding into the muscles, joints or other tissues, which can lead to long-term damage. This coagulation factor is manufactured by biotechnological methods using modified cells that produce human factor VIII molecules.


By establishing a second supply source in Germany – in addition to the existing production site in Berkeley, California, United States – we are addressing the growing global demand for hemophilia treatment. As part of this forward-looking investment in our factor VIII manufacturing, filling and packaging, Bayer HealthCare plans to create about 500 new jobs in Wuppertal and Leverkusen by the year 2020.

What are the job profiles for the two sites?

To help us establish these additional production capacities, we are offering you the opportunity to collaborate at modern workplaces in an inspiring and open environment with colleagues who share your passion – the opportunity to turn groundbreaking ideas into solutions that make life better.

At the Wuppertal site we are looking for applicants with biotechnology and cleanroom experience for a number of positions including the following:

  • chemical production technicians (mainly shiftwork, plus a limited number of day-shift-only positions)
  • chemical and biological laboratory assistants in production and quality assurance for biopharmaceutical production
  • production technicians for biopharmaceutical production
  • chemical supervisors in a biopharmaceutical environment

At the Leverkusen site we are looking for applicants with biotechnology and cleanroom experience for a number of positions including the following:

  • pharmaceutical production technicians for biopharmaceutical production or people with experience in aseptic production
  • engineers, technicians and skilled manual workers for biopharmaceutical production

At both sites you have also the option to enter Bayer through a scientific vocational training program. Find out more. Open positions in our training programs can be found via the direct links to job openings at our Wuppertal and Leverkusen sites in the next paragraph.
