An Insider's view of RealSelf

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work life balance is important at RS - we offer a very flexible work schedule with the option to work remotely when ever needed, with two dedicated wfh days. This helps employees save time on commutes, ability to make appointments during the week, and spend more time with your family. We also offer 22 PTO days per year + 8 company paid holidays.

Amy

Sr. Recruiter

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.

Sharon

Lead Trust & Safety Program Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Goal-tracking tools and resources at RealSelf keep me accountable and focused on results. The mentorship program and professional development grant also allowed me to learn new skills I can apply to my role. But nothing beats the amazing people at RealSelf–my manager truly cares about how I'm growing and how best she can support my ideas.

Geri

Sr. Community Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our People Team strives to support the understanding that work life balance should no longer be considered a benefit, but should be an expectation of a company. Not only do we stand behind this, we have recently created more opportunities for our people to work remote so that they can better balance life whether in or out of the office.

Craig

Sr. Director of People

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

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
