Job Description

About us

Pomelo Care is building the first at-scale, evidence-based pregnancy and newborn care platform, transforming outcomes for pregnant people and babies. Our technology-enabled care platform engages patients early, conducts continuous risk assessments, creates a personalized care plan and team for each patient, and delivers coordinated virtual care and care management throughout pregnancy, NICU, and in the postpartum year to improve outcomes. 

Pomelo manages individual risk factors for poor pregnancy outcomes (e.g., diabetes, hypertension, behavioral health, substance use disorder, social determinants, etc.) to reduce preterm births, NICU admissions, c-sections, and maternal mortality and morbidity. We also support families whose babies are in the NICU to help them care for their newborns, prepare for timely discharge, and confidently transition to home care with 24/7 telemedicine access to the Pomelo care team.  

We are a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, technologists, and problem solvers who are humble, eager to learn, and passionate about improving care for moms and babies. We are backed by leading investors, including a16z, First Round Capital, Box Group, SV Angel, Operator Partners, and the founders of leading digital health companies such as Landmark, Flatiron Health, and Pillpack.
