Freelance Medical Writer

| Santa Monica
At GoodRx, we believe that all Americans should have access to convenient and affordable healthcare. As a nation, we spend about $3.5 trillion annually on our healthcare, but too many Americans struggle to get the care they need, and prices just keep rising. Our marketplaces for prescription medicines and telehealth have helped Americans save $25 billion since 2011. GoodRx is a public company; we're based in Santa Monica with additional offices around the country. We're a low-key and tight-knit group that likes to find new ways to fix big problems. If you share our belief that you can do well by doing good, let's talk.

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 room 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, and those in the LGBTQ+ communities 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.com/blog 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. Since 2011, Americans with and without health insurance have saved $25 billion using GoodRx and 15 million consumers visit goodrx.com each month to find discounts and information related to their healthcare. GoodRx is the #1 most downloaded medical app on the iOS and Android app stores. For more information, visit www.goodrx.com.

An Insider's view of GoodRx

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

GoodRx hires team members we can trust and empower. With thoughtful hiring, we have assembled a team that is inherently self-motivated, driven and doesn't require (or want) micromanagement.

How does the company support your career growth?

GoodRx has been like a family to me. I started as an intern while finishing grad school and never left. I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by some inspiring and talented leaders who have given me the opportunity to work on a multitude of engineering projects across the business. I’ve now come full circle, managing a team where I first started on!
