About Lyra Health
Lyra is transforming mental health care through technology with a human touch to help people feel emotionally healthy at work and at home. We work with industry leaders, such as Morgan Stanley, Uber, Amgen, and other Fortune 500 companies, to improve access to effective, high-quality mental health care for their employees and their families. With our innovative digital care platform and global provider network, 10 million people can receive the best care and feel better, faster. Founded by David Ebersman, former CFO of Facebook and Genentech, Lyra has raised more than $900 million.

About the Role
Lyra Health is excited to welcome an experienced content strategist and writer to research and create high-engaging mental health assets for HR business leaders, people managers, and individual employees in global workforces. The right candidate is a talented storyteller who can develop marketing content that resonates with both customers (employers) and members (employees). 

Working closely with marketing stakeholders and subject matter experts, this individual will play a critical role in helping our rapidly growing team draft and revise our short- and long-form collateral, including robust articles, communications guides, and flyers. The successful candidate will also be an editorial expert in making recommendations to iterate and improve existing content. 

Applicants have the option to work remotely while partnering with leading experts in mental health to address one of the greatest problems of our time. We are looking for someone who is eager to understand the audiences we serve, including those receiving care and employers looking to expand benefits for their teams. 

Additionally, this person should be able to apply a thoughtful DEIB lens to all work. Individual identity is a core component of mental health, and the ideal candidate can blend sensitivity with a passion for advocacy for both US and global audiences. To that end, We seek applicants from all backgrounds to ensure we get the best, most creative talent on our team.
