Job Description

About Ophelia
 
Ophelia is a mission-driven organization that aims to help individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) improve their health and quality of life. We make evidence-based OUD treatment accessible, affordable, and discreet.
 
Opioid overdose is the #1 cause of death for Americans under 50, and accounted for 100,000 deaths in 2020. Unfortunately, 80% Americans with OUD are not getting the help they need. There is a proven, evidence-based solution to manage OUD: it’s called medication assisted treatment and Ophelia is creating a state-of-the-art, tech-driven platform to make it accessible to everyone who need it.We’ve recently raised a $50 million Series B Investment (Tiger Global, Menlo Ventures, Y Combinator, General Catalyst, and others) to expand nationally and grow our founding leadership team.
 
We are a team of medical providers, scientists, and White House advisors, backed by leading technology and healthcare investors working to re-imagine and re-build OUD treatment in America.
 
Join us, save lives, and help fix healthcare for those who need it most.
