Sitka brings specialty expertise to doctors and patients in a way they understand, in a setting they control and on devices they already carry with them. Doctors gain rapid, on-demand access to our network of specialists through our unique technology platform. Patients receive personalized reviews of their medical data with our experts providing empathetic guidance through life-changing medical events. Patients love it, doctors love it, even insurers love it.
Software and medicine have traditionally not gotten along. Building software to replicate centuries old medical workflows isn’t fun and, more importantly, isn’t what the industry needs. Sitka is founded on the premise that meaningful improvement in medicine requires new systems enabling convenient, conversational workflows, not the tedious and documentation-heavy processes of the past. The current systems don’t work for anyone, so it’s time for something radically different.
As a small startup, there are no big-company cog-in-the-machine roles. Everything and everyone matters, so we hire with that in mind. We value diversity, not just because building services for diverse populations requires a diverse team, but because we personally feel it's the right thing to do.
Sitka engineers progressively bring order to the chaos of medicine. We work closely with our clinical practitioners and patients, rapidly iterating on the product and workflow to solve real problems in real clinics.
Multiparty workflow systems are complicated and challenging in ways that the uninitiated may not appreciate. Any sufficiently complicated workflow system requires building for intervention: when the unexpected happens, your system must be resilient enough and sufficiently well-constructed to allow humans to intervene without demolishing your carefully designed and automated state flow.
You’d report to the CTO, with tremendous flexibility to define the shape of the product, technical architecture and company itself. As an early engineer, you will be a critical member of the team, with your work directly affecting the success or failure of the company. The scope of your potential impact is limited only by your ambition and ability to get things done.
