How are we managing through the COVID pandemic?

Our primary goal from the beginning of the pandemic has been to ensure employee safety and to do our part in protecting the healthcare community that we play an important role in helping every day. We have implemented a number of best-in-class safety protocols to ensure our office is a safe and happy place to work and intend to embrace a hybrid work model that allows for 3 days in office, 2 days remote per week beginning in 2022. With that in mind, we are looking for candidates that will be based full-time in/around NYC.

We are an equal opportunity workplace committed to building a culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion.
