GoodRx is America’s healthcare marketplace. Each month, millions of people visit goodrx.com to find reliable health information and discounts for their healthcare — and we’ve helped people save $35 billion since 2011. We provide prescription discounts that are accepted at more than 70,000 pharmacies in the U.S., as well as telehealth services including doctor visits and lab tests. Our services have been positively reviewed by Good Morning America, The New York Times, NBC News, AARP, and many others.

Our goal is to help Americans find convenient and affordable healthcare. We offer solutions for consumers, employers, health plans, and anyone else who shares our desire to provide affordable prescriptions to all Americans.

We’re committed to growing and empowering a more inclusive community within our company and industry. That’s why we hire and cultivate diverse teams of the best and brightest from all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We believe that true innovation happens when everyone has a seat at the table and the tools, resources, and opportunities to excel.

With that said, research shows that women and other underrepresented groups apply only if they meet 100% of the criteria. GoodRx is committed to leveling the playing field, and we encourage women, people of color, those in the LGBTQ+ communities, and Veterans to apply for positions even if they don’t necessarily check every box outlined in the job description. Please still get in touch - we’d love to connect and see if you could be good for the role!

GoodRx is looking for MDs with current or past clinical experience, meticulous attention to detail, and experience writing about a range of different clinical topics for a lay audience. We are looking for natural storytellers with excellent written and oral communication skills, who can write compelling, engaging, readable, and digestible pieces of educational editorial content. To do this you will combine your real-life clinical experience as an empathic and holistic practitioner with in-depth reviews of the current scientific evidence. 

You need to have training as a medical writer or have experience writing for formal publications aimed at the general public, and you must be appropriately licensed and not previously or currently involved in any regulatory board, agency inquiry, or professional liability policy claim.

This role could begin immediately and would be a commitment of 10 to 15 hours per week. We are open to remote locations.


Please submit the following:

  • A short and snappy cover letter telling us about your clinical and writing experience and why we should work with you.
  • Your resumé, including your contact details and location.
  • Pitch a blog post on a clinical topic of your choice below. See GoodRx Health for an idea of our style and tone. Be sure to write at a 6th-grade reading level.

GoodRx is America's healthcare marketplace. The company offers the most comprehensive and accurate resource for affordable prescription medications in the U.S., gathering pricing information from thousands of pharmacies coast to coast, as well as a telehealth marketplace for online doctor visits and lab tests.
