Bilingual Health Educator
September 14, 2022
At Snow Companies, we believe that our work helps people living with chronic conditions by empowering them to find and share their own stories. And we enable them to have meaningful dialogues with the people who make and market breakthrough treatments for their conditions. We can’t do that alone, though.
Our company is growing fast, and we’re looking for creative, compassionate, and self-motivated people to build it with us.
Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just starting a career in marketing, we want to hear from you.
If you’re ready for a career that can make a difference in the lives of patients and the people who love them, we can’t wait to hear from you!
The Health Educator is responsible for answering incoming calls on the educational support line, which is open 24×7 (in some cases) and will have varied shifts.

Snow’s business is centered around the patient journey, and the Health Educator, like all positions at Snow, must be open, compassionate, and sensitive to the unique life experiences of these patients and caregivers. The Health Educator must be able to incorporate the unique patient/caregiver experience into the strategies and solutions we provide to our clients.
