Most people we’ve placed here say the company’s loyalty to and personalization within the healthcare services industry is a standout characteristic. Their approach to this way of thinking about their business and the industry is having a direct impact on the size of the teams, and we’re seeing massive growth. What a time to get involved!

This client:

  • Is considered by Fast Company to be amongst the most innovative companies

  • Is listed by Forbes as one of the world’s most admired companies

  • Makes it their mission to guide people toward better health

    • This includes altering the products they offer at retail to more health-conscious offerings!

Our client has recently made a move toward a major merger, which means this is a great time to get involved! Two big industry brands coming together.

Working here gets you into a fast-paced environment, with tons of cross-functional working relationships. You’d have exposure to a number of teams related to any project you’re working on, and we sometimes see freelancers convert to permanent employees on teams they’ve had the opportunity to interact with. This is definitely a standout opportunity!
