What you get to do every day:

  • Providing editorial support, including developing content, giving assignments to freelance writers, editing manuscripts, and managing projects

  • Assisting with the coordination of content between MyHealthTeam and medical experts for review

  • Writing articles, as needed
  • Working with copy editors on copy edits conforming to AP Style and MyHealthTeam’s house style
  • Editing articles in Spanish, if fluent

What We’re Looking For:

  • A graduate level degree from a medical program, such as an M.D., D.O., PharmD, or a medical master’s
  • Strong writing skills
  • Ability to edit articles according to style guidelines
  • Experience with consumer health content, medical digital content, or pharma content
  • Ability to fact-check and research medical and/or scientific data
  • Familiarity with G Suite and project management tools like Asana
  • A team player
  • Desire to fulfill the mission of improving outcomes for people with chronic conditions

We would strongly prefer if you had: 

  • An M.D. or D.O. degree with a completed adult medicine residency program
  • Fluency in spoken and written Spanish
  • One to three years experience in an editorial position 

MyHealthTeam is committed to creating an inclusive space where current and future employees are valued for their skills, experiences, and unique perspectives. Even if your experience does not check every bullet point, we still highly encourage you to apply. The best hires do not always check off every box of a job description.

This is a full-time, remote position. We are offering a great opportunity to make a difference in the health care space.

  • Everyone at MyHealthTeam believes in the company mission, and we are committed to serving people facing chronic conditions.
  • This is a close-knit, hardworking company where everyone respects everyone else’s contribution to our success.
  • At MyHealthTeam, we believe in investing in people with diverse experiences and backgrounds to help improve the lives of people facing chronic health conditions. To do this, we seek to:
  1. Attract and hire a diverse workforce.
  2. Cultivate an environment where colleagues feel welcomed and supported.
  3. Nurture the professional growth of employees.

Company Vision

MyHealthTeam is a 100+ person, mission-driven company that creates social networks for people facing chronic health conditions. We believe that if you’re diagnosed with a disease such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, breast cancer, or diabetes (to name a few), it should be easy to find support, trusted information, and the best people around to help you. 

With social networks in 50+ different chronic conditions and more than 4 million members, MyHealthTeam is the fastest-growing social network in chronic health. Three years from now, if you’re diagnosed with a chronic condition, we believe your doctor will prescribe one of our social networks because being engaged there will actually improve health outcomes. We develop partnerships that empower and are transparent to our members. We believe that a business can “do good” while “doing well.”
