About Highmark

Highmark has been operating for nearly three years. In that time, our team has created a mobile app and web platform, signed on thousands of paying customers, attracted a global medical advisory board including scientists from Harvard, UCLA, Canadian and Australian universities, and has enlisted a number of Olympic gold-medal athletes and former professional NHL players as brand ambassadors. 

Our current platform is helping thousands of athletes, trainers, and doctors to make personalized, data-driven decisions about concussions. Concussions affect millions of people every year but we currently know very little about them, and diagnosis and treatment remain largely subjective. Our mobile application allows athletes and clinicians alike to perform at the top of their game.

Highmark Interactive is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse company culture and a multicultural workplace and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.
