  • Establish continuous deployment of automated build, test and release pipelines

  • Take an entrepreneurial mentality to identify new opportunities
  • Have a front row seat to a fast growing, early stage YC company
  • Work directly with the founders, who have experience building consumer health products at 23andMe and helping build the healthcare personalization domain at McKinsey
