Job Description

About Favor
Favor is a leading digital healthcare platform on a mission to empower women and people who menstruate to lead their healthiest lives. We combine telemedicine and direct-to-consumer pharmacy with the broadest insurance coverage in the space. Since our founding in 2016, we’ve evolved from a single-point solution focused on birth control delivery and reproductive healthcare to a coordinated care provider that seeks to expand access to affordable, convenient, and accessible healthcare.
Six years ago we started by solving the inherent, unnecessary hassle tied to birth control. We built a new system, because the current one failed us. By creating an accessible, affordable, and convenient experience, we’ve served more than two million patients nationwide and counting.
Women and people who menstruate have long been dismissed, talked over and often ignored by health providers. At Favor, we know this because many of us have lived it. We’re evolving from a single-point solution focused on birth control delivery & reproductive healthcare to a digital health platform that offers prescription skin care, over-the-counter skin care, period care, and other sexual wellness items. We accept most major forms of insurance, Medicaid in select states, and offer affordable out-of-pocket options too.  We are a growth stage company with over $100M in venture capital funding from leading investors, such as VMG Partners, GV (Google Ventures), Shasta Ventures, Base 10 Ventures, Acme Labs and more.
Join Favor, the team making sure women and people who menstruate finally get treated right.
