An Insider's view of RealSelf

What's something quirky about your company?

Having worked in the tech startup space for ten years, I’m used to all the perks that come with our industry. RealSelf has all the typical perks, but what really stood out to me as quirky and unique is our transformation room. A tranquil room where employees can recharge during the day either individually or with regular yoga/meditation sessions.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We're increasing trust on our platform in a time where people are less trustful of what they read online. Our goal is to give everyone the information they need to make strong, confident decisions about their medical care.


Trust & Safety Manager
