Cureus | Careers


What are we?

Cureus is the medical journal and professional sharing platform for a new generation of doctors and patients. Based in San Francisco, California, Cureus is a Springer Nature journal leveraging the power of an online, crowd-sourced community platform to promote medical research and discovery with tools to better serve and highlight physicians and researchers around the world. The result? Better research, faster publication and easier access for everyone.

That’s why we created Cureus, an online medical journal with no or minimal cost to publish and free reader access - a freemium business model based on digital advertising, hosting mini journals and publishing competitions. We’re working to reduce the barriers to publication whenever possible with the goal of increasing the global literature of medical knowledge.

Who are we?

We are a tight-knit group that hires smart people and trusts them to do their best to meet goals. We check egos and entitlement at the door, but welcome intellectual honesty. We take pride in our work to drive change and challenge the status quo. We're here to solve a big problem in the publishing industry. We're passionate about creating remarkable experiences and products for our customers.
