Editor, Freelance, Editorial Team

Hims & Hers Health, Inc. (better known as Hims & Hers) is a multi-specialty telehealth platform building a virtual front door to the healthcare system. We connect consumers to licensed healthcare professionals, enabling people to access high-quality medical care—from wherever is most convenient—for numerous conditions related to sexual health, hair care, mental health, skincare, primary care, and more. 

With products and services available across all 50 states and Washington, D.C., Hims & Hers is on a mission to help the world feel great through the power of better health.  We believe how you feel in your body and mind transforms how you show up in life. That’s why we’re building a future where nothing stands in the way of harnessing this power. We normalize health & wellness challenges—and innovate on their solutions—to make feeling happy and healthy easy to achieve. No two people are the same, so we provide access to personalized care designed for results. At our core, our mission is deeply personal—because we too are customers. 

In January 2021, the company was listed on the NYSE and is traded under the ticker symbol “HIMS”.

​​About the Role:

Hims & Hers is looking for seasoned creative editors who are passionate about everything health — hair care, mental health, sex, weight management, etc. — to join our Editorial Content team as an independent contractor.

The successful freelance editor will be nimble, collaborative and extremely passionate about helping people *feel better*. 

You’re up to the challenge of impressing readers while also knowing how to dance with Google’s web crawlers. Your editing is strategic and tactful, with a keen eye for detail. You also understand how keywords are used and why digital marketers are so obsessed with them.

You’re adept at keeping up with hard deadlines, making pivots on the fly and are as committed as we (and our writers) are to taking sometimes complex topics and distilling them into simple, easy-to-understand narratives. People are looking for answers to often uncomfortable questions, and we want to make them feel like they can get solid, credible information from us, with no judgment. 

We’re changing the way folks think about their healthcare — and that starts with the stories we tell and how we tell them. 

These articles will be most peoples’ first touchpoint with the brand, so smart, accessible and enjoyable content is key to starting that journey on the right foot. 

Freelance Services to Be Provided:

  • Edit compelling, accessible, authoritative content across the Hims & Hers blogs consistent with content briefs, style guides and medical research packets provided for each assignment by our in-house editorial and SEO teams. 
  • Ensure that articles include a mix of footnotes and reference lists, and follow a  comprehensive SEO report (Experience with Frase, Clearscope, Ahrefs, etc. heavily preferred).
  • Learn the Hims & Hers brand and tone guidelines and use them to inform editing from a high level.
  • Always put the reader first: edit for the customer. What do they need to know to feel better? How can we provide them with rock-solid information that will enable them to trust us as a brand. 
  • Revise work as necessary based on feedback from editorial, SEO, and medical reviewers.

Required Experience:

  • 5+ years editorial experience, preferably for both brands and publishers, preference for publishers with a strong SEO strategy.
  • Excellent time management and ability to make weekly deadlines.
  • Proven track record editing excellent content about complex topics. 
  • Strong creative, conversational editing style with a passion for good authorial voice.
  • Experience using insights and strategic thinking to shape priorities.
  • Experience driving complex projects in a fast-paced environment.

Nice to have Experience:

  • Experience writing or editing in the medical or wellness space strongly preferred
  • Genuine passion for and interest in hair, sex, mental health, and/or weight management — from products to techniques and everything in between.
