Shifting the landscape of technology doesn’t happen on its own. It happens via the continuous and well-defined rigor of people who have a shared passion and who are dedicated to working toward a common goal. We are looking for exceptional people to join our rapidly growing startup and have a positive impact on our company culture and product. We strongly appreciate positivity, curiosity and above all else the ability to nail things down. We are incredibly conscious of creating a comfortable, flexible, environment that cultivates the desire to be engaged, ask questions and feel a vested interest in the success of our team. Most importantly, you should value honest and direct communication as you recognize that this is the best way for any individual or team to continuously learn and grow. Accomplishing our collective goals will be fun but it will also be hard; you should be in pursuit of an ongoing and rewarding challenge!
We’re passionate about the technology we’ve created and know that we are revolutionizing healthcare. The products you help us create are going to have a real-world impact on a person’s ability to understand what it means to be healthy and provide them with the tools they need to make educated choices about how they move forward. Our pursuit is an altruistic one, but that does not mean we live unbalanced lives. We have families and passions outside of work, and we know that the best work comes from sharp, rested people. We respect each other and each of our contributions, and we believe that the best solutions will come from a diversity of ideas and perspectives.
