Role Description

Our mission is to give every patient a guide in the healthcare system. Karuna's software allows patients to stay in touch with their care teams using the same channels they use with friends and family: from Whatsapp and text messaging to voice calls and video. To handle the increased volume and quality of interactions, our automation tools help care teams prioritize, measure their performance, and cut through back office work so that they can focus on doing what they do best: building authentic relationships with the patients who need them most.

Our focus today is on care management, a niche part of the healthcare ecosystem dedicated to serving the most vulnerable and sickest members of our communities. In the future, we will enable healthcare organizations to build deeper, more impactful relationships with every patient, while also helping them expand the scope and accessibility of their services for all.

As a frontend engineer at Karuna, you will work closely with our engineering and product teams and take responsibility for bringing Karuna's vision to life.

About Karuna Health

Karuna's software empowers high-need patients to stay in touch with their care teams using the same channels they already use with friends and family: from Whatsapp and text messaging to voice calls and video. To handle the increased volume and quality of interactions, our automation tools help care teams prioritize, measure their performance, and cut through back office work so that they can focus on doing what they do best: building authentic relationships with the patients who need them most.

Karuna is a high-growth digital health company backed by early investors in Uber, Square, PillPack, Oscar Health, Flatiron Health, Cruise, and other startups that have redefined their industries. We work with some of the most influential community health organizations in the world and are scaling our user base ~30x over the next quarter.

Company Culture

We value a strong bias towards action. Good enough is better than perfect, and we always strive for forward progress. This applies to code quality, solution quality, and product quality. Our approach to healthcare is about making the largest impact on the greatest number of patients, and there is a ton of low hanging fruit in that space. The key is actually shipping usable, useful products, which is what we obsess over doing!

We also have a strong culture of being thoughtful about the future, and building flexible infrastructure which is extensible and future-proof.
