Chief Medical Officer

San Francisco, CA
Clinical
Part-Time
Our mission is to give every patient a guide in the healthcare system.

Karuna's software allows patients to stay in touch with their care teams using the same channels they use with friends and family: from Whatsapp and text messaging to voice calls and video. To handle the increased volume and quality of engagement, our automation tools help care teams prioritize, measure their performance, and cut through back office work so that they can focus on doing what they do best: building authentic relationships with the patients who need them most.

Our focus today is on care management, a niche part of the healthcare ecosystem dedicated to serving the most vulnerable and sickest members of our communities. In the future, we will enable healthcare organizations to build deeper, more impactful relationships with every patient, while also helping them expand the scope and accessibility of their services for all.

As Karuna's Chief Medical Officer (part-time or full-time), you will work closely with our executive, business development, and product teams and be responsible for bringing our product to market through physician-led sales and product design.

Karuna is a venture-backed startup founded and advised by leaders in healthcare technology. Our investors include First Round Capital, SV Angel, Founder Collective, and BoxGroup.
