At Kinsa we are driven by our mission to track and stop the spread of contagious illness. We’ve
done this by transforming the first device you grab when sickness strikes - the thermometer -
into a sensor to detect when and where illness is rising, and communicate with those who have
just fallen ill. We are technologists, designers and health professionals who have built best-
selling products, started successful ventures, and brought life-saving treatments to millions of
people. We are backed by successful entrepreneurs and top VCs like Kleiner Perkins, GSR
Ventures and FirstMark Capital.

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
