Working Together at Relypsa

Relypsa, a Vifor Pharma Group company, is a Bay Area-based biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of late-stage medicines in the iron deficiency, nephrology and cardio-renal therapeutic areas. We are committed to delivering innovative therapies that will change treatment paradigms and improve patients’ lives.

Every day, our team is hard at work using our deep understanding of polymer science and other technologies to develop these medicines. Today, we have nearly 400 employees united by a passion for saving and improving patients’ lives.

At Relypsa, we put patients first. We make decisions based on patients’ well-being and we partner with medical foundations to support their near- and long-term patient initiatives. We are committed to providing access to our medicines to patients in need.

Our leadership team is committed to ensuring that our place of work is supportive, collaborative, friendly and – most importantly – fun. We come together over company lunches and family summer barbecues, and we jog together on the waterfront. We also raise funds and walk as a team at events that support our mission of improving patients’ lives – throughout our community and around the world.


Relypsa’s work throughout the community has been recognized by a number of organizations. Recent awards include:

  • California Life Sciences Association Award
  • NKF Inaugural Corporate Innovator Award
