Policy Analyst (Remote)
Posted on Tuesday, August 15, 2023
At Plume, we’re on a mission to radically transform healthcare access for the transgender and gender-nonconforming communities. As a trans-founded company, we're proud to be building a virtual care home that makes a difference in countless lives. Are you ready to be part of our growing team in the healthtech industry?
Available to over 1 million transgender individuals across 45 states, we're growing fast and need passionate, talented individuals like you to join our journey and help us to increase access to life-saving Gender Affirming Hormone Therapy and transform healthcare for every trans life. If you have a heart-forward approach and resonate with our values, we'd love to hear from you!
Our Core Values:
🌈 We Are Authentic: We opt for honest and direct conversations. We strive to be vulnerable and connect authentically.
🌈 We Are Accountable: We follow up and commit to each other within the community and to ourselves.
🌈 We Are Growth-Oriented: We take the initiative, we’re proactive learners, and we tackle new challenges.
🌈 We Are Inclusive: We’re considerate of working across diverse experiences. Every voice is valuable in serving our vision. We have an unusual bias for seeking input.
🌈 We Are Collaborative: We put “we” before I, we stay engaged and communicative when we disagree, and we can commit even if we’re not in complete agreement.
🌈 We Are Trans-Informed: We ask “why?” and distrust the status quo. We honor awkwardness & experimentation over polish and how things have always been done.
