PatientsLikeMe launched in 2006 as the world’s first patient network to help people track and share their experiences living with disease. Since then, we’ve helped more than 500,000 members improve their own and others’ outcomes and contribute data for research.

Today we are the definitive source for real world evidence about living with disease. And we’re setting an incredible foundation for the future as we look to combine new data and AI that will deepen the world’s understanding of the medical, behavioral and environmental factors that can either accelerate disease or optimize health.

We help people come together to share information and change lives. The more people who know who we are, what we do, and what our virtual community can do for them, the bigger impact we’ll have. That’s where you come in.

As the Director of Content Strategy, you’ll work with internal and external partners to create and package compelling stories that spread awareness of our mission, vision and impact, and set up the distribution strategies that ensure those stories reach as many people as possible.

Responsibilities include: 

  • Lead quarterly content planning for external (non-member) consumer audiences. Work with corporate communications, member communications and science teams to identify and select the best stories and research studies to feature, and devise compelling ways to tell them.
  • Manage content calendar, story production and budget. Assign external writers and graphic artists/videographers to enhance our storytelling through use of video, data visualization, audio. Select best owned channels for stories.
  • Manage external content partnerships to ultimately increase inbound traffic to our website and owned channels. Audit our current practice. Scout and develop new opportunities for collaborative content exchanges and for promoted content. Work with business intelligence team to continuously evaluate the effectiveness of our earned or paid placements and be ready to change dynamically as new options arise.
  • Identify new features and content for our content hub (blog) that will raise its standard as a modern, dynamic digital content offering.

Experience required:

  • 7+ years of relevant experience in content marketing, writing and editing, either at a media organization or content team in a consumer-facing company. In fact, if you were a journalist or editor in a healthcare or science media environment, we definitely want to talk to you.
  • Demonstrated experience creating a viable distribution network for content and placing content at scale.
  • Exceptional storytelling, writing and editing skills.
  • Personal interest in health and wellness.
  • Strong organizational skills, and an ability to work with other content teams

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
