Product Development Specialist

| Chicago


At VillageMD, we are committed to helping patients achieve greater health by delivering the most effective, accessible and efficient healthcare in the world through partnership with primary care physicians. We're in a unique position to impact everyone in primary care from independent, family-owned practices to premier health systems. Our Product Development team takes a hands-on, evidence-based approach to support our physician partners by ensuring product work and methodologies reflect and serve defined and evolving partner needs. As the Product Development Specialist, you will be a key contributor to the process of developing assets to meet clinical and operational practice needs in our various markets across the US. You will also assist with all product needs related to operationalization and implementation of our products within clinical settings, working with clinic staff through pilots, scale up and optimization phases.

In this role, you’ll develop relationships with our market partners to identify and solicit their content needs, create content for various media outlets, raise awareness about new products and determine the best method for content delivery to improve readership. You will be responsible for developing your own work product. Your opportunities to develop your skills and gain exposure to different areas of our business will grow in step with the growth of our organization.

Our ideal candidate is an experienced professional with demonstrable creative writing skills, and experience working with medical content. You should perform well under deadlines and be detail-oriented.

Ultimately, you should be able to oversee all content initiatives to ensure clinical accuracy, customer engagement, brand consistency and a positive customer experience. If you are also an expert in content optimization and brand consistency, we would like to meet you.
