    Who are we:

    A lot of companies say they’re mission-driven, but at PatientsLikeMe, it’s in our DNA. PatientsLikeMe is a patient network that improves lives and a real-time research platform that advances medicine. Our innovative technology helps 400,000+ patients with 2500+ conditions improve their outcomes by connecting with and learning from thousands of others just like them. In the process, they donate what we call data for good – real-world information that helps healthcare companies create better healthcare products and services based on real patients’ needs.

    The work we do is challenging, rewarding, always evolving, and often complicated. But it's never boring. This is your chance to join a close-knit gang of smart, passionate people who are as excited as ever about changing the future of healthcare. And we're growing like crazy. Join us and we'll make that future together.

    Who we're hiring:

    From creative user experience designers and marketers to code-savvy software engineers and data scientists, we're a diverse crew with a common goal: reframing healthcare around the patient.

    PatientsLikeMe Core Values:

    PatientsLikeMe was founded on four core values. These values shape every decision we make—from the way we build and enhance the site, to what business partnerships we develop.

    Honor the trust patients place in us

    Simply stated, this means "Patients First." You, our patients, trust us with your most valued health information. We honor that trust, and we are dedicated to advancing the knowledge of your conditions with the information you share.


    We believe that sharing health information is good. Why? Because sharing and openness will drive massive improvement in healthcare. Read more in our Openness Philosophy.


    No surprises. Our members shouldn't be surprised by anything we do. Our goal is to disclose what we do with members' information, how we make money, as well as all of our partnerships on the site.

    Create Wow!

    When you see our site, we want you to think, "Wow!"
