What do we do at MeYou Health?
We build web and mobile behavior products that help our members improve well-being and turn small actions into healthy habits. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Healthways, we can focus on product, maintain a startup atmosphere, and be dedicated to building great software – all with the support of a large, well-established health services company. Our goal-oriented process keeps our members’ needs at the forefront and drives all of our design, content, and engineering decisions, every day.
Where do we work?
Our new office is in a stylish building in the Fort Point Channel neighborhood of Boston. We’re a 10-minute walk from South Station (with a shuttle that travels back and forth for those rainy or chilly days), and there’s ample parking nearby for those who drive. It’s sunny and bright at MeYou Health, with big windows that offer great views of the city. The space is modern, with exposed brick and beams, but also cozy, from our lounge to our warm and friendly dining area.
Who works at MeYou Health?
There isn’t one sort of person who works here! The MeYou Health team spans the worlds of design, engineering, science, writing, medicine, and data, creating a culture where collaboration is at the center of everything we do. We share product updates at bi-weekly catered lunches, where designers, engineers, and other team members talk about their successes and see techniques that their colleagues are using. Some of us even work together on outside projects when the day is done.
How do we promote well-being at work?
We don’t just aim to improve others’ health – we’re committed to our own physical and emotional well-being, too! At MeYou Health, there’s a running club that pops out for quick runs, and people play pickup games of basketball and soccer. We take group walks around the neighborhood and eat lunch at our long, communal tables. We enjoy our time together here at work (and spend time together outside of work!). We’ve created an atmosphere that’s relaxed, fun, and genuine.
Why is our work meaningful?
People who work at MeYou Health make a living and a difference. We create products that improve people’s lives and enable them to transform their social networks into support systems. Our flagship product, Daily Challenge, encourages members to complete one small, healthy action each day. Over the last few years, our product suite has grown include a walking app, a weight management app, and a platform that houses all MeYou Health products and lets members track their well-being over time. We are also currently re-designing QuitNet, the largest online community of smokers and ex-smokers worldwide. We feel lucky to have such an impact on people’s well-being, and it’s rewarding to see firsthand how we help our members every day.
