Social.mom is a social network for moms that tackles loneliness. You may not know, but research has shown that loneliness has twice the impact of obesity on a person’s lifespan and mental health. Some specialists have started to call loneliness the new cancer.
Social.mom is all about using social media to empower moms instead of wasting their time comparing themselves to one another.
Using technology for the user’s benefit, we believe that we can have a positive and lasting impact on their well-being.
The team is composed of moms, dads and single people who are all motivated to help moms raise healthy kids.
We all work from our homes, but are intentional about having “virtual coffee breaks” together with the single purpose to socialize. We tackle loneliness, so there is no way we would allow our employees to feel lonely at home.
If you want to be part of a team that really cares about its users and employees, we are the place for you.
Please ensure you meet geographic and skills requirements before applying.
