An Insider's view of Blink Health

What’s the vibe like in the office?

At Blink, it's all hustle and bustle which makes it a great time to be here! Dress code is casual which plays a huge role in comfort and productivity. In need of an energy boost? There's free lunch and a stocked kitchen daily. Snacks and sneakers are great, but the most exciting part is working for a company with a mission you can stand by!

Workplace Services Coordinator

What projects are you most excited about?

We’re expanding telehealth options into some really impactful areas. It’s exciting to be working on a solution for people taking those meds on a regular basis so they can more easily and affordably access care and treatment that they might not otherwise be able to get or pay for without Blink Health’s platform.

Josh

Strategic Projects Associate

What is your vision for the company?

I’m excited for the potential of disrupting our category and changing the way consumers access prescription medications and healthcare. This is a $450 billion industry with almost zero oversight on drug pricing and zero price transparency. The mission is to fix all of this.
