A little about us...
At Rupa Health, we’re on a mission to fundamentally improve the health of every person on the planet. We see functional medicine as the missing piece for millions of people suffering from chronic health conditions. That’s why we are committed to creating the technology for this thriving area of scientifically-backed integrative healthcare. We’re building the infrastructure for the next generation of medicine.

Our first product is the Rupa Labs portal. Rupa Labs makes it super simple for functional medicine practitioners to order, dispense, and receive results from 15+ lab companies in one place. It is essential infrastructure for functional medicine practitioners, turning a 15 hour-a-week archaic process into a delightful 15 min task. With Rupa, practitioners can get back to what’s important - helping people get well!

We’re fortunate to be advised by the best in the industry, including the Head of Health and co-founder of IDEO, the co-founder of Honor HomeCare, domain experts with backgrounds from Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Johns Hopkins, and more. We also have some super fun ones including the acupuncturist who led the Eagles through last year’s super bowl win, and the holistic health provider who gets referred patients from the Dalai Lama! Our investors include some of the best in the world: Mike Maples (Floodgate), Sequoia Capital Scout Fund, Hustle Fund, healthcare domain experts, former founders with successful exits, and the product brains behind Gmail, Facebook newsfeed, Dropbox, and more.
We’ve been growing like crazy this year, with exponential month-over-month growth. To help fuel this rapid growth we’ve recently closed investment from First Round, one of the top venture capital firms in the world. A company is only as good as its people, and so we’re looking for an engineer who can join us on this fast-paced journey.

So, what’s the role?
You’ll be Rupa Health’s first engineering hire! We’re a close-knit, scrappy, and hardworking small team, and that means we’re looking for talented engineers who can offer more than just code. You’ll work closely with the founding team to iterate on the Rupa Labs portal and build delightful new features for our practitioners and patients. There’s a lot of unexplored territory in this space, and we’ll be relying on your ingenuity and problem-solving skills to come up with novel solutions that can scale. We’ll also be looking for you to provide your thoughts on the product direction and UX design.

As an early engineer, you’ll be able to grow as a leader in your role and define the technical direction and vision for the company. You’ll have a lot of autonomy, responsibility, and ownership. You’ll also help define and contribute to the culture of the company as a whole. You’ll be working directly with our technical co-founder who has 10+ years of experience coding, founding startups, and building multiple products in the health / wellness space.

What we're looking for

    • At least 3-5 years of professional software engineering experience creating frontend and backend applications.
    • Ready and able to jump straight into building in ReactJS and Django. Ideally you have experience with AWS and Postgres too.
    • Experience working in other early-stage tech startups. Bonus points if you’ve been a founder!
    • Ability to move fast and write code with a startup mindset.
    • Being able to take a broadly defined task and implement it without every aspect being laid out for you.
    • Security-by-design mindset. Let’s keep our patients’ data safe.
    • A passion for functional medicine and creating the infrastructure for the future of healthcare.
Current Team
You’ll be joining our all-star founding team who have 10+ years experience in the space, have won awards for their biotech research, worked hands on with chronically ill patients, and much more. The founding team comes from Stanford, Wharton, Parsley Health, Lululemon, Everlywell, Coffee Meets Bagel and more. We each have very personal reasons for wanting to transform this space. We’ve experienced firsthand the impact functional medicine can have and are committed to this cause.

Beyond our collective excitement for the space, we’re a super close team who values personal development, being active, growth mindsets, a great sense of humor, and a healthy balance of optimism and realism. We work hard and have a ton of fun. 🙌

If this sounds like you, we’re stoked to meet you!
