Brand + Marketing

We’re big on words. Words empower and steward the integrous translation of science that forms the foundation of our brand.

Writer and storyteller at heart, you create magic in the permutation of 26 letters, a handful of punctuation, and occasional, cleverly-placed emojis. You think in long form and short form and rap verses and poetry and everything in between and understand it’s about speaking to people in the way they want to be spoken to. You can get to the heart of a message in the fewest number of characters and thrive in the crafting of phrases that catalyze action. Words are powerful; you know exactly when and how to be subversive and provocative versus nurturing and expansive. You thrive in memes, haikus, hashtags, puns, metaphors, and analogies—word play is your superpower. When we say TED meets Vox meets The Hustle meets Carl Sagan meets VICE, you know what we mean.

And you are curious. Pushing boundaries and buttons is your thing and you demand a new way to counterprogram against the noise (especially when it comes to science, health, and wellness). You could wake up every day with the mission to make science accessible and cool (while also fully understanding the importance of integrity and the nuance of precision). You are inspired to crack empowerment through education and turn clickbait into meaning. You have told a lot of stories, written a lot of taglines, tweets, captions, and subject lines, and you’re ready for something that satisfies and expands and peeks your intellect, your soul, and of course, your microbiome.

Who you are:

  • 3+ years experience (especially if in an educational / science / health / CPG / wellness or related space)
  • Extraordinary crafter of beautiful language
  • A steward for brand identity and voice
  • Multi-channel, multi-tasking, multi-disciplinary—experience across campaign, social, packaging, web, and email, a plus
  • Synthesis of disparate ideas to create analogies, metaphors, and other narrative devices to communicate science and inspire a community
  • You noticed the misused homophone in this job description and it bothered you deeply

  •  

You are an idea generator. Someone who will drive the strategic vision, creation and execution of integrated brand campaigns. You are a quick-witted, forward-thinking creative with the unique ability to fill the gap between culture, brand, growth, platform, mediums— with sharp, original, creative solutions. You are a hyper-collaborative, highly-energetic individual with the capacity to think on their feet and operate with effective, superior written and verbal communication skills.  You are inspired to crack empowerment through education and turn click-bait into meaning. You have told a lot of stories, written a lot of taglines, tweets, captions, and subject lines, and you’re ready for something that satisfies and expands and peeks your intellect, your soul, and of course, your microbiome.

 

The blank page does not scare you. It inspires you. A roadblock or is a challenge waiting to be solved. You look for the doors no one else can see. You understand that sometimes the team might not know what we want until we see it, so you keep a repertoire of groundbreaking ideas in your back pocket to present and inspire. You are electrified by what you learn in the depths of scientific research, and emerge with findings that inspire both the creative team and our external audiences. You are comfortable writing a brief to guide designers, copywriters and channel owners throughout the creative development process. Your ideas will be applicable to both our member and non-member communities, on and offline. You know the steps needed to bring ideas to life, pulling from your diverse range of experience in strategy, creative, and production, and you know how to scale ideas from 10⁹ down to 10⁻⁹ (you can be big vision one minute and the next double-click into the granular details to make it come alive). 

 

Writer and storyteller at heart, you create magic in the permutation of 26 letters, a handful of punctuation, and occasional, cleverly-placed emojis. You think in long form and short form and rap verses and poetry and everything in between and understand it’s about speaking to people in the way they want to be spoken to.

In this role, you will be responsible for conceptualizing creative campaigns and experiences that translate science to meet our audience wherever they are, while supporting brand, growth and internal culture needs. You thrive on the balance between different worlds: language and art, left brain and right, creativity and scale, ideation and production. 



Who you are:

  • Ability to take feedback from a wide variety of team members
  • Passionate about storytelling and helping build a growing brand
  • From a 360 campaign idea to a video treatment to writing pithy copy for a product, event, app, or other marketing initiatives, you’re an agile and experimental creative writer. Curious, inquisitive, and obsessed with deep research— nerding out on the depths of new topics that you are not yet familiar with, inspires your best ideas.
  • You have a strong background in, interest, and experience in the multicultural marketplace. You’re on the pulse of multiple cultures, immersed in diverse communities and are able to identify real-time cultural trends, behaviors and passions across the landscape. You also know when you don’t know and seek other perspectives to round out your own. 
  • You can synthesize disparate ideas to create analogies, metaphors, and other narrative devices to communicate science and inspire a community.
  • Pragmatic. While you dream in outer space (or in the micro-verse) you are able to identify the steps needed to bring your ideas to life through production realities. You are comfortable with leading these steps alongside the team to ensure your ideas come to fruition. 
  • Passionate about developing never-been-done-before, headline capturing, award-winning, ming-gasmic concepts.
  • You understand the value of insights and you can leverage these insights to create a unique story across any format.

 

What you’ll do:

    • Research and define. 
      • Utilize internal Seed qualitative and quantitative data, as well as external observations and desktop research to create unconventional campaign narratives and strategies.

      • Collaborate with Marketing and Growth teams on strategic thinking for both brand and product campaigns.
    • Creative narrative development.
      • Develop campaign concepts and overall messaging that pushes the boundaries of the overall Seed ethos. 
      • Write and present creative concept briefs that inspire design and experience, while also connecting to overall strategic business goals.
  • Execute.
      • Communicate effectively and efficiently with many departments to ensure work is done in a timely manner and deadlines are met. 
      • You will help us find an awesome junior copywriter to support the execution of your ideas.
  • Learn and iterate.
    • Work closely with VP of Brand + Marketing and Director of Marketing Ops to develop intentional post-mortems of creative campaigns, learnings, and ideas for future iterations. 
    • Be a safeguard for projects that may be spiraling or moving in a direction that feels too esoteric. Spot inefficiencies, blockers, and challenges and suggest ways to overcome them with the wider creative team.

Growth

Seed Health • Director of Healthcare Community

 

Us

 

Seed Health is a microbiome science company pioneering innovations in probiotics and living medicines to impact human and planetary health. Our scientific board comprises leading scientists, researchers, and clinicians across the fields of microbiology, immunology, bioinformatics, dermatology, oral health, vaginal health, gastroenterology, mental health, pediatrics, and nutrition. 

Consumer innovations are commercialized under Seed® with a mission to bring much-needed precision, efficacy, education and perspective-shifting science communication to the global category of probiotics. Our efforts to set a new standard in probiotics, microbial innovation and translational communication have earned various accolades, including Fast Company's World Changing Ideas in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022, and TIME's Best Inventions 2018.

Director of Healthcare Community

 

Healthcare is a growing ecosystem of practitioners, coaches, clinics, self-organized patient communities, AI chatbots, and so much more.  Inherent in this ecosystem are new symbioses, which you will create using Seed’s expertise in microbiome science.  As an early member of Seed’s healthcare business unit, you will create the playbook for how Seed interacts in this ecosystem and builds a community of its own.

 

At Seed, you’ll start with three primary goals:

 

  1. Forge relationships with KOLs (existing and upcoming) in healthcare—those championing the advancement of microbiome education and novel applications of probiotics.

  2. Nurture an inbound community of healthcare practitioners who seek to partner with Seed to educate their patients or procure Seed products for resale.

  3. Optimize the internal processes and resources we have for scaling relationships, inquiries, and a CRM that doubles every month.

 

Since you’ll be interacting with practitioners every day, you’ll have a finesse to handling health questions about patient conditions, awareness of regulations in communicating about supplements and medical foods, and a honed recognition of the opportunities whereby Seed can rise above the noise in the industry with credible education and clarity.  Since you’ll also be managing direct revenue generation from these relationships, you’ll identify ways to increase sales per practitioner, improve retention per patient, and launch programs of mutual value for Seed and our partners.  These solutions will evolve over time as we scale, so you will identify the upgrades we should be planning, months in advance.

 

Most importantly, you’ll raise the bar for what practitioners should expect from companies and products to earn their trust and recommendation.

Who you are:

 

  • 5+ years of related business development or marketing experience
  • 5+ years interfacing with healthcare practitioners (HCP), translating products and services across varied domains of expertise and fields of medicine
  • Previous experience in consumer health or healthcare
  • Previous experience brand-side
  • Extraordinary written and verbal communication skills
  • Flawless attention to detail in planning, executing and reporting on results of all assigned tasks
  • Knowledge of regulatory and compliance in probiotics and licensed healthcare practices
  • Literacy in health and science



We don’t have to tell you that the healthcare landscape is changing. You’re in it. Telemedicine, direct-to-consumer pharmacies, high-tech clinics, wearables, public health AI, health coach certifications, etc. are creating a new healthcare ecosystem, and you are tracking these evolutions.

At Seed, you’ll launch and grow a new business unit that will affect how licensed practitioners and their clients/patients access and understand the microbiome and probiotics. Most companies think of this influential community as a B2B sales channel, but we believe there’s a more empowering approach that solves rampant misinformation in probiotics and elevates this prosumer experience in a noisy (and often archaic) space. You’ll own the strategy, P+L, tech and product briefing, trade marketing and communications, community education and engagement, and the two-sided experience for both practitioners and those they serve. To do this, you’ll work cross-functionally with Care / SciCare, Operations, Finance, Marketing, SciComms, and R+D.

You’ll connect dots across the licensed practitioner landscape (e.g. functional medicine doctors, acupuncturists, gastroenterologists, dietitians, clinics, telepharmacists). You’ll understand their needs, how they are currently being and not being served by companies, the best ways to reach them, how we can add value to their work, how we can help them serve and educate their clients and patients, how we should gather them in real life and digitally, and how we can be an ongoing resource for them.

You’ll operationalize all aspects of this unit and forge the strategic partnerships required to scale and diversify this community as we launch new products in verticals and domains with unique practitioner expertise. You’ll own the end to end user journey and two-sided product for practitioners and their patients. You’ll double quadruple the size of our existing CRM, prove ROI on multiple channels, weigh in on the user journey experience of practitioners and their clients, and build an exceptional team as we grow.

Most importantly, you’ll raise the bar for what practitioners should expect from companies and products to earn their trust and recommendation.

Who you are:

  • 7+ years of related business development, marketing, or operations experience
  • Previous experience in consumer health, healthcare, and/or the prosumer space
  • Previous experience interfacing with healthcare practitioners (HCP), translating products and services across varied domains of expertise and fields of medicine
  • Previous experience brand-side
  • Experience leading large, complex, and first-of-their-kind projects end to end, from strategy to launch to scale
  • Extraordinary written and verbal communication skills
  • Flawless attention to detail in planning and execution of all assigned tasks
  • Knowledge of regulatory and compliance in probiotics and licensed healthcare practices
  • Literacy in health and science

Member Experience + Community

We’re a human brand serving humans who ask us about health, wellness, science, probiotics, and anything one can Google. Some are inquisitive and skeptical, others praise us for our knowledge and helpfulness. As a company obsessed with scientific integrity, the cultivation of community, and a deep commitment to education, you are a vital part of this. 

You are an integral steward of Seed, the communication of science and our values, and a keystone of our brand experience. You are deeply curious about biology, bacteria, nutrition, the microbiome and its role in human and ecological health. PubMed is in your Instagram feed, Nature Medicine is in your bookmarks bar, and you’re excited to finally bridge the n of 100 (what science knows) with the n of 1 (how a human feels). 

You are a leader responsible for facilitating the first impression for incoming customers and curious question-askers who are excited about what we do and how we do it, through our SciCare Team. This means everything from supporting with daily customer emails, to communicating science to various member cohorts across platforms. You will consider ways to better SciCare’s reach, success, and impact, whilst planning to consistently achieve this at scale. You constantly think about ways to proactively offer information and education that deepen our community’s experience. 

SciCare goes beyond a world-class customer experience—this is about human relationships grounded in trust, scientific accessibility, and believing in education as agency. Every day, we deal with human health and all of the nuance, emotion, and crucial empathy that’s required of it. This is about how you guide a team of experts to engage with humans coming to us to share their individual  health journeys and experiences through the lens of science, and how you facilitate world-class customer experience through the translation and communication of science  in a way that’s simultaneously rigorous, accessible, and kind. 

You are a people manager and a leader and you’re equally excited to care for our team as you are for our customers. You put standards in place for how the team operates and how we continue to shape our SciCare tone and voice and overall standards of communication, education and impact. 

What you’ll do:

  • Manage our SciCare team of Specialists and Leads and continue to develop our member-facing standards, tone and experience through the lens of science education.
  • Lead and support the evolution of our offerings and infrastructure to allow us to offer a unique science-driven member experience at scale. 
  • Support members of the SciCare team and ensure each specialist is fulfilled, inspired, and challenged, and that the team as a whole is meeting our goals and working effectively to balance queue-based work and project-based work so we can continue providing galaxy-class experience to each member cohort. 
  • Lead weekly check-ins with specialists pertaining to individual performance, implementing individual strategies when necessary.
  • Manage the Science Care team schedule to ensure consistent coverage and plan for scale—including weekend working hours, holiday scheduling, PTO, and recharge periods.
  • Define and map internal service level agreements, like first response time, to establish a consistent SciCare experience.
  • Lead the development of unique SciCare KPIs that measure both quantitative and qualitative metrics of success
  • Lead by example, answer inbound SciCare inquiries and become an expert in Seed’s products, science and other areas of focus.
  • Work with key stakeholders to establish best practices for triage and ticket priority to ensure internal service level agreements are met daily and to ensure member escalations and urgent tickets are resolved.
  • Help shape and enforce SciCare’s unique tone and voice, so that specialists feel empowered to communicate in a way that's simultaneously rigorous, accessible, empathetic, and kind; and can deliver this experience consistently. 
  • Lead the planning and execution of retention initiatives including proactive SciCare projects.
  • Help shape the way SciCare services different member cohorts. 

Who you are:

  • You have 1-3 years of experience in customer support, a service-led role or customer-facing team.
  • You have 2+ years of leadership, people-management, or managerial experience 
  • An educational background in biological sciences, microbiology, nutrition or other related fields.
  • Prior experience translating and communicating science or working in medical communications, healthcare, or a clinical setting.  
  • Excellent written communication, teamwork and interpersonal skills. 
  • Passion for building a people-driven organization and culture, leading humans, coaching and unpacking talent potential.

You

You are an experienced scientist who understands the tremendous potential of how to modify human microbiomes to improve health. You have a deep knowledge in some aspect of immunology relevant to human-microbe interaction in one or more aspects of human biology, and a hunger to learn more. 

You are passionate about cutting-edge science and are skilled at taking a high level scientific goal and figuring out, through deep thinking and engagement with internal and external experts, how to identify critically important mechanisms and execute the right data and wet lab experiments to validate (and reject) hypotheses. Importantly, you have detailed hands-on expertise in data or experimentation that enables you to select the most promising and productive areas for exploration. We’d love to see some experience in microbiome science along with your immunology expertise, but it’s not required. 

You are experienced in interacting with external collaborators, including academics and CROs, to identify the best path to advance research quickly. Ideally, you have experience working as part of a cross-functional scientific team to advance high-risk, high-reward science and are comfortable with the languages of microbiome and data as well as immunology. You are a strong communicator, able to pivot quickly towards new directions, and comfortable in a fast-paced environment.

  • PhD, ideally 2+ years postdoctoral or industry experience in host/microbe interaction in any body system, and/or immunology 
  • Experience originating and managing research projects, either in academia or industry 

What You’ll Do:

  • Serve as the subject matter expert in immunology and host-microbe interactions across Discovery programs in multiple subject areas 
  • Be the point person for figuring out how to execute immunological and host-microbiome assays for our Discovery and clinical programs with academic collaborators and CROs
  • Identify/design appropriate biomarker assays for our clinical trials, including identification & vetting of CROs, and lead execution of relevant endpoints

You are a person who enjoys working with a team of passionate, highly skilled scientists to advance high risk, high reward science. 

Ideally, you have direct experience managing research projects as part of a small core team with aggressive timelines within the life sciences industry or academia (but we are not myopic and believe if the first paragraph sings to you, you wouldn’t hesitate to apply). You are a strong communicator, able to pivot quickly towards new directions, and comfortable in a fast-paced environment.

 

What You’ll Do:

  • Design and lead the Discovery research strategy in oral health, in close collaboration with the VP, Discovery and CSO
  • Lead exploration, ideation, and experimentation to quickly validate or reject key hypotheses around mechanisms for how the microbiome impacts/improves oral health
  • Manage your program from ideation to execution including hypothesis identification, scoping out deliverables, requirements gathering, development of scientific work plans, and regular tracking of progress
  • Manage internal and external resources needed to execute on your vision, including but not  limited to identifying CROs, external academic collaborators, and internal scientists 
  • Work directly with the leadership team to define the scope of work and plan for each project
  • Proactively tackle potential questions, delays or conflicts and communicate status updates to the VP of Discovery, CSO, and CEOs

 

Background

  • PhD, ideally 2+ years postdoctoral or industry experience in microbiome science, host/microbe interaction, oral health/microbiome, and/or immunology
  • Experience originating and managing research projects, either in academia or industry

About You 

If you are a systems thinker who embraces the “first principles” ethos, a researcher who is on the pulse of current developments in biotech, a meticulous information-gatherer, and a resourceful problem-solver who believes no task is too small — this is for you. We are always seeking symbiotic dot-connectors who can bring a unique perspective and skillset to our team. 

More about you:

You are insatiably curious, kind, and empathic, with an unrivaled work ethic. You promote a culture obsessed with process—one of proactivity and non-reactivity. You take pride in your impeccable attention to detail and organization, be it an Excel spreadsheet, Google Drive, your desk, external communications, or Asana boards.  You pride yourself on translating abstraction into order. You understand how hundreds of small moving parts contribute to the overall success of a project, and you are eager to dive into the action to maintain momentum. You are a brilliant communicator who inspires others to excel. And most importantly, you love to learn. 

You understand the process of scientific product development from research all the way to product launch, and love to be involved at each step of the journey. Even during the initial literature review, you keep an eye on regulatory status, price, and optics of an ingredient in the final product. Your past laboratory or research experience means you can advise a research collaborator on protocol development, and your business experience means you deliver your guidance tactfully in a well-run meeting, while negotiating the budget. You know how to talk with professors and CEOs as well as manufacturers and interns, and aren’t afraid of a persistent follow-up email. You can dip your toes across all areas of regulatory, clinical, manufacturing, discovery and can multitask like it’s your middle name. You are excited at the prospect of diving into something totally new and can apply your intellect, intuition, and problem-solving super powers to execute whatever comes across your computer. With your foundational skills, you’ve come to understand that you don’t necessarily need to know, you just need to know how to find out. And once you do find out, you innovate past it. 

You’re thrilled at the prospect of continuing your work in the microbiome field, and being at the key translational point where research turns into real-world solutions. Furthermore, you have a grasp of what other companies are in this burgeoning industry with us and what research they’re leveraging.  Above all, you are excited to be leading R+D in a team of highly qualified individuals, and know just how to engage their unique skills to efficiently and effectively bring products from lab to launch.
