Flexible - Some meetings may occur in the evenings or on weekends

Our favorite kind of person to work with is...

We like to work with people who love what they do, aren’t afraid to "learn on the fly" and are able to be flexible if any changes occur during our time working together. They need to have a sense of humor and be able to laugh, especially when things are "tough" and we are in crunch mode. If someone needs a highly structured environment, they probably won’t be a great fit for us - we like structure but also appreciate the creative process and may occasionally adapt to any changes required during the content development process.

How to apply:

If you’re interested in joining our project team, please apply via email to: with the following information:

  • Email Subject Line: Attention: HR re: Empowered Health Digital Content Writer
