About the role


Mednet is StackOverflow for doctors. We are a question and answer platform where doctors can get questions answered by leading practitioners in their field. This solves a huge problem in medicine: getting every doctor the best possible information on how to treat their patients.

We started with oncology, and are now the most used digital platform in the field: over 80% of oncologists use Mednet. Our business model is based on teaching doctors about newly developed drugs that can improve their patients' outcomes. Our users say we are the best online resource to get help with difficult cases and our revenue is growing at 3x YoY.

  • Doctors first - Any decision we make must start by asking whether we are helping doctors make better decisions for their patients
  • Have a can-do attitude - No work is below any member of the team. We all pitch in to help achieve our mission
  • Take ownership - Develop your strategy, execute on it, iterate until you get the results that you want
  • Treat each other right - Treat your colleagues with respect, kindness, professionalism and integrity
