About Ro
Founded in 2017, Ro is a patient-driven telehealth company that puts you in control of your health. We’re patients, just like you, building technology to make healthcare accessible, affordable, and maybe even enjoyable. Ro powers three digital health clinics -- Roman for men’s health, Rory for women’s health, and Zero for fighting smoking addiction -- as well as Ro Pharmacy, a simple and affordable online pharmacy where every medication is $5 per month. The company’s nationwide networking of physicians and pharmacies provides a personalized, end-to-end healthcare experience from online treatment to the delivery of medication and ongoing care. Ro was named #2 in Wellness on Fast Company’s 2019 list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies, and listed by Inc. Magazine as a Best Place to Work in 2020.

  • Develop company-wide interpretations, policies, and practices for execution by the pharmacy and operations teams
  • Prepare Ro’s pharmacies for communications and activities with boards of pharmacy

  • Work closely with Ro’s General Counsel on government relations and policy work related to the practice of pharmacy
  • Examine Ro’s practices on an ongoing basis and advise cross-departmentally on compliance and risk management

  • Diligence Ro’s third party vendors and partners
  • Review, draft, and negotiate a variety of contracts with partners and vendors
  • Assist with dispute resolution
  • Help manage external counsel
  • Help build an incredible legal department from the ground level!

  • Prior experience as a pharmacist
  • Experience counseling clients on a variety of pharmacy regulatory matters
  • You have experience reviewing complex commercial agreements

  • Able to assess and balance both legal and business risks
  • A skillful drafter and issue-spotter, and a clear communicator
  • An effective time manager who is impressively organized
  • You are super serious about your work (without taking yourself too seriously)
  • Bonus points:
  • You have experience with any of the following: state health care laws and regulations, emerging growth companies, telehealth, pharmacy operations (especially mail order pharmacy), over-the-counter products, and communicating with regulators and legislators.

We welcome qualified candidates of all races, creeds, genders, and sexuality to apply.

An Insider's view of Ro

What does your typical day look like?

My day involves a lot of interactions with different teams to communicate and align on the ‘why’ behind the decisions we make as well as leading the work of the product design team — it’s full of constant decision making and communication throughout the day.

What is your vision for the company?

Ultimately, we aspire to be your first call — to either handle everything you need from beginning to end or to guide you throughout your journey when you’re better served by others. We see a world in which patients are in complete control of their care. A world in which physicians, nurses, and pharmacists are empowered, not replaced by technology.
