Forward is on a bold mission to make high quality healthcare available to a billion people across the globe. We’re building the world’s most advanced healthcare platform from the ground up, combining hardware, software and doctors under one roof.
Our ideal care provider is someone motivated to provide high quality, patient-centered care in a remote telemedicine setting. Doctors who do well at Forward embrace system-based practice and are interested in working in an evolving care setting where the tools you use to provide care are frequently updated and improved. This includes actively participating in feedback to our engineering teams to inform new products and product updates. This is an ideal opportunity for those seeking a flexible opportunity to deliver primary care via telemedicine.
Forward was founded in January 2016 by former executives and engineering leaders from Google and Uber. We are funded by some of the world's best investors and entrepreneurs including Founder's Fund, Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Eric Schmidt (Google/Alphabet Chairman), Marc Benioff (Salesforce Founder), Joe Lonsdale (Palantir Founder), and Garrett Camp (Uber co-Founder).
