Pioneer the next frontier of mental health treatments with us.

Join us on our mission to redefine psychiatry and help people get better faster.


with a side of learning

At Alto, we make sure the environment provides support for your continued growth. Between coffee walk and talks, daily catered lunches, weekly lunch and learns, and Q&A sessions with senior leadership, you’ll quickly experience the FUN in functional learning with some of the brightest in biotech.

Interactive Collaboration

to foster meaningful change

Each member of Alto is empowered to be a subject matter expert in their respective area, but we refuse to put anyone in a box. Instead, we’re constantly learning from one another – embracing new information and creative collaboration to drive innovation. Plus, our flat organizational structure ensures all ideas and contributions are heard and valued.

Diversity & Inclusion  

to drive creativity

For us, D&I isn't just a campaign – it's deeply ingrained in the fabric of our team and operations. Regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, experience, or position, you’ll find support here. We cherish our differences and celebrate the unique value everyone brings. One team member eloquently noted, “We’re kind, compassionate and truly inclusive – an anomaly in Silicon Valley. We are not typical Bay Area biotech.”


unlike other biotechs

Benefits at Alto go beyond competitive salaries, generous health insurance plans and 401k matching (although we have these, too!). From amazing swag to frequent happy hours, afternoon ping pong and hybrid team events, plus an “open door” policy, we foster a culture defined by fun, transparency and healthy living.

Alto Core Values

As one team, we’re working to reinvent psychiatry and disrupt the current treatment paradigm. This requires us to operate, collaborate and look at things differently – standing firmly behind our values as we execute our vision.

Rethink Everything

We have to think differently to do differently. We approach age-old problems with unconventional wisdom, starting with “why?” We are curious in our approach, creative in our thinking and relentless in our execution.

Operate with Urgency

For people with mental health disorders, time is of the essence. We know we need to work fast to outpace the rapidly evolving mental health crisis. We are precise and speedy in our actions and delivery.

Let Data Do the Talking

We are guided by facts and grounded in science. Removing guesswork from psychiatry requires us to be rooted in facts, and the road to eliminating trial-and-error begins with science.

Invested in Impact

We are driven by purpose and united in our mission. We aim to defeat the global mental health crisis one brain at a time. For us, it’s about the differences we make in the lives of every person we impact.

In this Together

We are collaborative in our approach and constructive in our dissent, always striving to strengthen our team. Our culture is one of trust, collaboration and kindness. Whether working with colleagues, physicians, patients, investors, partners or other stakeholders, we win as one.
