  • Overview

    Our team sits at the intersection of profound change in health. Big data, personalized care, digital medicine—it’s all a tidal wave of implications and opportunity. We are skillful guides for these innovation rides because we are equally adept at translating what’s coming out of the lab as we are at navigating regulatory and economic hurdles. And we never lose sight of the human side of the story. Meaning, we make clients’ stories live and breathe. We give them a beating heart.

     

    WE provides a breadth of communications services to clients across the healthcare sector, including pharmaceuticals (pre- and post-approval), consumer health, health IT, medical devices, and life sciences. We develop innovative programs that reach and influence physicians, advocates, patients, regulators, policy makers, payors and the consumers at the center of it all.

     

    Our vision for differentiation is to serve clients that deliver innovations that will improve lives, address current limitations of healthcare delivery, and contribute to a healthcare system that is more accountable, more cost effective, more sustainable, and offers personalized approaches to care.

     

    We are looking for a seasoned senior account executive or account manager to join our team. The ideal candidate is an experienced communicator who thrives in an environment where passion, creativity and curiosity are valued. We are looking for someone who has experience with healthcare communications at all stages – from data milestones, to disease awareness campaigns and product approval. The ideal candidate will have extensive experience with material development, influencer engagement, media relations strategy development, creating content for digital and social channels, and knowing how to motivate junior staff for results. Candidates must also have a passion for client service, staff development and networking with a keen interest to play that critical “hub” role supporting the success of our growing health practice.
