What do we do?

Akido Labs is a rapidly growing company built out of Keck Medicine’s Digital Health Lab and backed by Y Combinator.

Until now, health care has suffered from incredibly slow technology adoption, setting it decades behind other industries. Recently however, the widespread adoption of Electronic Health Records has generated an unprecedented amount of digital health data.

Akido Labs mission is to use this data to increase access to quality care and reduce the cost of that care for consumers all around the world.

Why join us?

Akido Labs is looking for a full stack web developer to join an organization with nation-wide hospital access paired with a team of seasoned technologists and healthcare executives to revolutionize how data is used in healthcare.
