Company Description
UPDATE - In addition to Men's Health, we've branched out into the COVID-19 testing arena. Apply to learn more about how we're helping boost the testing capacity in the US.

We are a personalized men’s health company working to revolutionize preventative health. We’re focusing on solving a big problem rarely talked about and infrequently diagnosed: low testosterone. Testosterone therapy is at the center of preventative health for men, but 97% of men with testosterone deficiency go untreated. We are creating a national network of clinics backed by the world’s top doctors in men’s health. Our medical advisors wrote the guidelines on testosterone deficiency, and we have developed the most sophisticated pathways for diagnosing and treating this condition.

In a market laden with snakeoil and shoddy clinics, Vault stands to build credibility, community, and to elevate the patient experience through a convenient, intuitive, discreet and hyper-customized experience. The result is the Vault platform: safe, effective, and unlike anything else in men's health.

Roles - Quick Notes
-This role is 90% Backend (Python/Flask/AWS) / 10% Front-end (Javascript/React.js)
-AWS experience is preferred, but they’ll also consider experience with GCP or Azure to be a bonus.
-Self-starters who want to have a large impact, with previous start-up experience, will be the most likely candidates to get to offer stages.
