Health Economist

We are a 150+ person team funded by top-tier firms, based in Santa Monica, CA with satellite offices in San Francisco. We are a low-key but tight-knit group of hard-working people working to fix America's broken healthcare system. Americans spend over $400 billion per year on prescriptions and too many people simply can't afford the medications they desperately need. Join GoodRx and help us solve meaningful problems that help us make people’s lives better every day.

The GoodRx Research team taps internal and external data to generate insights about medicine and drug pricing in the U.S. We produce data-rich content, build new products, and work with journalists to engage and inform millions of Americans about their medication options. If you have a passion for using data to help people understand their health, GoodRx wants to hear from you.
