Job Description

Who we are

K Health is a venture-backed, fast-growing start-up with a mission to use the power of shared knowledge to get everyone access to higher quality, more affordable health care. We’re looking for mission-driven individuals to join our growing team and help us eliminate healthcare inequalities and build a better, healthier future for us all. 

Named to the 2021 CNBC Disruptor 50 list, K Health is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to build the smartest digital healthcare platform in existence. Our data-driven app brings together the knowledge of thousands of doctors and the anonymous medical records of millions of people to help diagnose and treat what’s wrong. We offer a free symptom checker and 24/7 access to doctors to ask questions, refill prescriptions, get care for your kids, and more. Right from your phone—no insurance needed.  

Since we were founded in 2016, K Health has raised over $270M in VC funding. Our recent valuation brought us to Unicorn status. Our current partners include the Mayo Clinic Platform, Anthem, and Maccabi Health Services.

About the role
We are looking for strong telemedicine clinicians who want to push the boundaries and fundamentally improve the health care system through an innovative platform. As a K Health Affiliated physician, you will be responsible for delivering remote care through our platform without the need for video.

In 2016, We gathered a small group of technologists and doctors together and started discussing some pretty big questions:
1.  How can we make it easier for everyone to find personalized health care information
2.  How can we remove barriers that limit access to quality health care from doctors
3.  Could consumer-focused technology ultimately improve health outcomes?
4.  Why don’t individuals take more control of their health information?

At K Health, we’ve spent the last four years addressing those questions, and we’ve built an amazing team to do just that. With almost 3 million members and hundreds of thousands of users joining our every month, help us make K Health the home for the world’s primary care needs. We use data and technology to deliver smarter, more personalized healthcare information, and increase access to quality care that costs dramatically less and leads to better outcomes.
