  • Content publishing. You’ll upload, format, and tag final content into our content management system when it’s ready to be deployed.

Additional Responsibilities

  • Develop a strong foundational knowledge of health literacy and plain language practices, and stay up to date on trends in UX writing and content creation.
  • Contribute to the workload of the print product team as needed (writing, fact-checking, editing, proofreading).
  • Work with internal Research & Analytics team when we conduct patient and physician research/user testing to provide Creative input.
  • Collaborate with the team to brainstorm new ways to increase engagement, and test and implement new ideas when we’re able to.
