Q provides a platform for preventive data-driven healthcare by making it simple for individuals and their physicians to comprehensively quantify and track changes in their bodies. Based on landmark research done in system biology in the Snyder Lab at Stanford University, in about an hour the Q physical exam gathers, blood, saliva, urine and does a non-invasive whole body scan to build a quantitative snapshot of a person's health.

Active Roles

Why join us?

  • We have an extremely talented multi-disciplinary team. We love working together on unsolved problems that have the potential to save millions of lives around the world.

  • It's incredibly humbling and motivating to work on a product that can significantly alter the course of someone's life. Nearly 50% of our users learned things about their health in their first visit that significantly changed their behavior, and 92% of are repeat users or have scheduled a second visit.

  • We are funded by some of the worlds greatest investment firms including: Andreessen Horowitz, Khosla Ventures, and Founders Fund

  • The human body is one of the most amazing things in the known universe but we still barely understand it. We are just beginning to have the tools to non-invasively measure and quantify our biological state. In the coming years, the combination of these tools with exponentially increasing computational power will lead to a transformation in our understanding of our bodies, disease and aging. We are excited to have the chance to contribute to this effort and help improve the lives of generations to come.

Engineering at Q Bio, Inc.

Engineering team and processes

Our software engineering team is small and flat and works closely with our research and development teams, as well as internal and external clinicians.

We are passionate about elegant system design and architecture. We believe simpler is better and that good software abstraction layers are critical in order to contain complexity in large software projects that need to scale to large numbers of developers while maintaining quality. We embrace functional programming paradigms like immutability, but aren't dogmatic and believe in using right tool for the job.

Our customers and their doctors use our platform to make decisions about their health, so code correctness is critical. We believe that automation and tooling are crucial to ensure code is highly testable and that issues are reproducible across local and cloud environments.

Technical Challenges

Building technology to measure more about the human body, cheaper and faster.

Developing high-perfomance numerical computing resources, and making them available as a platform to scientists and bioinformaticians for analysis, visualization, and discovery.

Designing a data model that represents the biological state of a human being and how it changes over time without introducing bias based on the current state of medical knowledge.

How to reliably process and make sense of both structured and unstructured data from many different sources.

Projects you might work on
  • Design, build, and deploy a high-performance numerical computing architecture in distributed environments.

  • You would work on toolkits for the analysis and visualization of quantitative health data.

  • Design a data model and API for storing and accessing data that describes the human body.
