About the role

Are you passionate about transforming healthcare through technology? Do you want to modernize healthcare and make a lasting impact for pharmacists and patients across Canada? If you answered yes, then this is the place for you.

Hi, I’m Rui and I’m the Co-Founder and Chief Clinical Officer of MedMe. I’m a pharmacist, and despite a $200k Doctor of Pharmacy degree, I still spend most of my time writing notes by hand and fielding phone calls for refills. When in fact, pharmacists can directly prescribe meds (like birth control), adjust diabetes/heart medications, give over 20 different vaccines/injections, and much more!

I was almost ready to leave my profession when I met my co-founders Purya & Nick. Purya was a health data scientist for the government and Nick a product engineer for the Tesla Roadster. They’d watched their own parents struggle with managing 10+ medications and were equally passionate about using pharmacists to provide more services for patients in the community.

Together, we identified the biggest problem to be existing pharmacy software built 20 years ago with the primary purpose to sell drugs. So, we built MedMe.

We are building software for an industry that has relied on paper and pen for a long time. This is why crafting, building, and constantly improving the end-to-end customer experience is an essential part of our company. It’s crucial that we listen deeply to the diverse needs of our pharmacies - located anywhere from dense urban jungles to northern remote communities - to design and build for their needs to ultimately provide more proactive and sustainable care for the patients in their communities.

Our Mission & Vision

Having raised $3.7M USD from M12 (Microsoft’s Venture Fund) and leading Canadian VCs, our mission is to build an all-in-one cloud-based platform that empowers pharmacists to schedule, document, and manage clinical services at scale. Our clients include the 2 largest pharmacy chains in Canada, servicing 3500+ pharmacies across 10 provinces and touching millions of patients. Our ultimate vision is to transform pharmacies from today’s dispensing locations to tomorrow's health hubs. 💡

Who You'll Be Working With

Hello, I'm Eliza, the Lead Product Designer at MedMe. With over 3 years of experience designing health tech solutions and 6+ years in the product design field, I have a track record of building innovative and user-centric products. At MedMe, I create simple yet powerful solutions that empower healthcare providers to deliver the best care for their patients. I strongly believe that incorporating humanity-centric design principles and listening to our users has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry. As the Product Design Lead at MedMe, I am seeking passionate individuals to join our mission and help us enhance our design process and drive innovation in the health tech space.
