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.

SEO Content Specialist

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

Trust & Safety Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Being a working mom and managing a busy life can be difficult. RealSelf gives me the ability to be flexible and I feel like I can meet all of my mom/wife/employee duties without the headache of wondering if they will support me through all of it.
