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.

As Marketing Copywriter, I’ve got the unique privilege of partnering across our Email, Product, and Brand teams to help drive marketing initiatives forward. Each day I use the power of language to connect with our audience in interesting and impactful ways. Collaborating with such bright colleagues is a fun, challenging, and exhilarating experience
