Tia is the next-gen women’s health platform fusing empathy & innovation to help women thrive.
Tia is the next generation women’s healthcare platform bringing empathy and innovation together to help women thrive. Our interdisciplinary team of doctors, designers & data enthusiasts have seen first-hand how women's needs have been radically underserved and underestimated, and are on a mission to build a new distinctly female care model from the ground up, online and offline.

Tia’s ecosystem of products, tools and services — from the Tia app to the Tia Clinic, a real-world gynecology & wellness practice based in NYC — is connected by a unique, human-centered approach to care that focuses on listening and learning all about women and their holistic needs, from anatomy to emotions, from gut health to getting it on. Tia encourages honest and transparent conversations about patients’ health, both with their care team and their community of members, to help women make independent and informed healthcare decisions with confidence and ease.

Role Overview
We are looking for a highly driven, product-oriented developer eager to join an early stage team. 

Your foremost responsibility will be to develop the backend systems that power Tia, encompassing the AskTia iOS app, TiaMD enterprise iPad app for doctors, and our patient portal web app. 

Most immediately, your responsibilities will be to support our existing microservice infrastructure with a specific focus on building robust API’s & enabling data collection through our universal health record.
