About the role

We’re looking for an experienced Medical Director to help us build a world-class telemedicine platform tackling chronic conditions like obesity. Specifically, we’re looking for someone to help create the underlying SOPs, oversee our provider network, enforce care standards, measure efficacy and success rates, and stay abreast of state-specific compliance needs.

Ideal candidates will be experienced operators with a clinical/medical background.

What you'll do

  • Build and maintain clinical operations systems and guides for our synchronous and asynchronous telehealth products.
  • Work with our operations and product teams to optimize flow and maximize care quality and delivery time.
  • Work with our legal team to ensure we are always compliant in every state we operate in
  • Recruit, onboard and manage our provider network of MDs, PAs and NPs.
  • Research third party vendors and spearhead partnerships.
  • Manage individual priorities, deadlines, and deliverables.

What we're looking for

  • 4+ years experience of relevant telehealth experience. We are looking for someone who has worked at a digital health startup and can bring with them knowledge and experience having gone through the motions.
  • Licensed, board-certified physician with some clinical experience is strongly preferred.
  • Experience recruiting, hiring and training teams is strongly preferred.
  • Excellent problem-solving and systems design skills — you should feel in your element thinking about how to organize organizations and teams to run them efficiently.
  • Strong organizational skills and the ability to multi task efficiently. You’ll be wearing many hats, and as such need to be great at rapidly switching contexts.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Who you are

  • Team player with a passion for learning and has the ability to write.
  • You are energized by ambiguity, fast-paced environments and being the underdog.
  • Desire to help people live happier and healthier lives.
  • Desire to build a truly great and lasting company.

Why Measured?

  1. Huge opportunity. A large percentage of Americans suffer from chronic conditions and have few means to manage them. We have an incredible opportunity to help a lot of people by providing them with affordable and accessible care.
  2. Challenging problems. Our mission is to help people suffering from chronic conditions get access to sustainable, accessible, and affordable longterm care. This requires rethinking the system as it works today.
  3. A great team. Our team is scrappy and experienced in building great products and growing massive brands.
  4. Culture. Having worked at high growth, early stage startups in the past, our team understands the value of work-life balance. We take weekends off, go on vacations, and have quarterly team retreats.
  5. Resources and growth. We're well capitalized and backed by stellar investors like Y Combinator. We keep a lean team, and this is a rare opportunity to join us - you'll learn a lot, build amazing products, and grow as our company scales.

What we offer

  • Competitive cash compensation and equity package
  • Comprehensive medical/dental/vision coverage + 401(k)
  • Opportunity as an early hire to take on significant responsibility and ownership in building a product that can change millions of lives

Where you'll work

This position is based in New York, however we will consider talented and qualified applicants from across the US.

We're interested in a 20-40 hour per week contract initially.

About Measured

Measured is a telemedicine platform on a mission to make healthcare more accessible and affordable. We believe in a future where anyone suffering from chronic illness can access a world-class specialist within hours, not days, and via the comfort of their home.

Our first and flagship product is centered around obesity, which impacts over 100 million adults in the United States alone. We take an evidence-based approach to weight loss that is medically supervised and combines:

  • Prescription weight loss medication delivered by providers trained in obesity, as well as lab tests and monthly check-ins.
  • A tailored health plan that includes healthy recipes, customizable meal plans, educational courses, weekly goals and a number of tracking tools.
  • 1:1 coaching sessions by Registered Dietitians.
  • Assistance in getting insurance to cover any medication costs you might incur.

We're well funded and backed by Y Combinator and several other top-tier investors. We've got plenty of runway and are laser focused on building the future of telemedicine, where technology/AI allows specialists to scale their services to thousands of patients instead of dozens.

We're looking for teammates who are interested in being early players and helping shape company culture. We care deeply about a culture that is inclusive and equitable for people of all backgrounds and experiences. If you do not fit this exact description but feel strongly about us and this role, please reach out regardless.
