Marketing Lead Job Description

Remote Full TimeNew York, NY, United States (Remote)Summer Health

Our mission is to radically simplify access to healthcare.

Every pediatric care journey should start with a simple text. On average, parents spend more than 3 hours a day managing non-scheduled medical needs for their children. With the uncertainty of after-hours care and the decline in professionals practicing medicine, the current medical system is not set up to respond to the round-the-clock needs of caregivers.

Summer Health is the first step and ongoing tool for anyone navigating health concerns, offering timely text access to high-quality healthcare professionals who provide expert answers and reliable advice over text.

Our investors include Sequoia, Lux, Chelsea Clinton’s Metrodora Capital, Box Group and many more.
