What We Need
Are you passionate about healthcare innovation and working with companies who are transforming the landscape with breakthrough products and solutions?  Does the future of health inspire you?  Do you like translating complicated stories about science, disease, data, and technology to educate wider audiences? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We are looking for an Account Manager, Health Media Relations to join our thriving healthcare practice and help our clients tell their stories in bold, unconventional ways.

 

Our team sits at the forefront of profound change in healthcare. Generative AI, personalized care, digital medicine—it’s all a tidal wave of implications and opportunity. Even better, the new world of healthcare puts patients at the center of it all. We are skillful guides for these innovation rides because we are equally adept at translating what’s coming out of the lab as we are at navigating regulatory and economic hurdles. And we never lose sight of the human side of the story. Meaning, we make clients’ stories live and breathe. We give them a beating heart.

 

Come join us at a different kind healthcare practice.  WE’s Health Sector was formed by leaders in the industry who got tired of the old way. This is how we are different:

We have an entrepreneurial spirit, supported by deep “big agency” resources.
We are taking brand new, progressive communications approaches in a rapidly evolving healthcare landscape, to attract the kind of clients who are innovators and want to be disruptors in the industry.
The leadership team is extremely hands-on and members at every level will “roll up their sleeves” and help each other out. There are no formalities – everyone can be themselves.
No bureaucratic processes, politics or “swim lanes” hold staff back from opportunities; if you want to do it, we will give you the chance to prove you can.
