We’re Rally Health, and we’re out to put health care back where it belongs — in the hands of individuals. We are a rapidly growing and well-funded digital health company, and we take a fresh approach to everything we do, particularly our editorial content. We write in a conversational tone, prize easy readability, and are passionate about maintaining the highest levels of ethical standards, accuracy, and clinical accuracy. (We are also fans of the Oxford comma, in case you couldn’t already tell.) As an independent editorial team, we use credible evidence-based information to guide our content decisions, and we report with objectivity and balance.

We’re looking for a versatile senior journalist who can edit, write, and program content across multiple platforms — mobile, social, and web. You’ll be a key part of Rally Health's agile editorial team, programming stories from a range of premium providers, writing and editing original health and wellness content for both B2C and B2B audiences, and publishing stories and graphics. The ideal candidate will be smart, self­-motivated, and comfortable juggling many things in our fast-paced environment while maintaining a fanatic attention to detail. Prior experience with health care content is essential.
