Senior Scientist - Lateral Flow Immunoassays

About us:

We are Simple HealthKit, a consumer-focused health tech startup focused on innovation and delivering rapid diagnostic solutions for all. Our customers and their patient populations can order kits, test themselves, track their results, and even get meds delivered. We’re breaking down barriers and providing affordable solutions to allow better health for everyone. And not “everyone,” as in “everyone making a good salary”, or who live in a specific zip code or have a specific health plan.

Everyone as in everyone.

We’re operating in a $100 billion market, and we’re backed by the same investors who invested in Amazon, Genentech, and Instacart. This is a great time to join Simple HealthKit.

About the role:

We’re looking for a Senior Scientist who will develop at-home and point-of-care diagnostic products. You’ll work alongside other scientists and researchers in our R&D department, interacting with vendors and manufacturers as we grow our product offerings. You’ll be part of a team that literally starts out with an idea and ends with a product. Your contribution to that team will be your assay development skills, troubleshooting skills, and your experience with membrane-based immunoassays.

If you’re looking for a home where you can work independently on projects that matter, while growing into a potential future leadership position, we should talk.

The position pays at or above market rate and includes health care, a 401(K), and unlimited PTO. Equity is a part of every package.
