The world’s largest personalized health network

PatientsLikeMe, a member of the iCarbonX Digital Health Alliance, is looking for a Community Moderator to join our Member Experience Team. The Member Experience Team works directly with our members to understand, support, and engage our online communities. What does that mean? A lot — every day is different!

As a community team, we…

  • Talk directly to members across different channels to develop relationships with people who use our products: welcome new members, answer questions, facilitate conversations, respond to feedback, help troubleshoot, and escalate issues accordingly
  • Help develop content, craft campaigns, and build out engagement programs
    Incorporate the user voice in internal and client research projects, conference presentations, and other initiatives
  • Meet with our members virtually and in-person at events to better understand their experiences and support company projects and products
  • Work to identify members, schedule, liaise, and follow-up to ensure a seamless process when connecting with users to better understand their experiences and gather feedback
  • Share community trends with other internal teams: give feedback to Product and Design teams about site features, elevate user stories to our Marketing team, share patient insights with the R&D teams, and generally talk about the community buzz around the office

We’re looking for someone to join our team who…

  • Has experience working with communities (preferably as a moderator, and preferably online) with a track-record of building relationships
  • Enjoys communicating in person and online (and is clear and efficient at doing so) — you’ll be reading and talking to our members daily!
  • Is empathetic and reasonable; you can work based on principles to make independent decisions
  • Has the ability to prioritize, multi-task, and perform effectively under pressure
  • Is tech savvy and can adapt to an always evolving user experience
  • Experience with virtual work environments. Both in terms of the technology tools and the ability to show strong, proactive communication skills

Note: This position is primarily based in Cambridge, MA but strong remote applicants will be considered. Some weekend work travel required.
