About the role

Rinse is looking for a [founding] Head of Engineering to lead the transition away from its no-code tech stack. As our first technical hire, you'll work closely with the founder to determine the go forward architecture and build a V2, either on your own or with the help of a small team you recruit.

What you'll build

Software in dental is as antiquated as the industry which means we’re starting from scratch...including:

  1. Beautiful, easy-to-use, mobile first consumer experiences for booking, onboarding, and exams.
  2. EHR/Practice Mgmt. solution that automates insurance tasks, makes it easy for in-studio clinical teams to collect health data (x-rays, intra-oral images, etc.), and for dentists to deliver high impact exams. You'll explore opportunities in AI/ML and figure out ways to hack integrations with notoriously antiquated industry incumbents.

What we're looking for

  • A former technical founder or early hire with some relevant experience.
  • A strong background in computer science with a degree in CS or a related field.
  • Experience building/managing technical teams.
  • Although experience in healthtech is great, we're most interested in those with a consumer tech background.
  • A love for the pace, energy, ambiguity, and scrappiness of an early stage startup.
  • Someone as pissed as we are at dental and excited to get behind a mission driven company with some ambition.

Why join Rinse?

  • You'll work to reimagine an entire industry, solving a real consumer problem...and you'll do it with an incredibly experienced and passionate team who knows this space better than anyone!
  • We offer excellent benefits, unlimited PTO and competitive comp (including equity).

Why you should join Rinse

As consumers, most of us recognize that going to the dentist sucks. Dig a little deeper and you’ll start to understand why… It's a broken, fragmented industry full of antiquated tech, outdated science, and financial incentives that push the treatment we’d all rather avoid.

At Rinse, we're building the One Medical for dental. Beautiful studios, easy to book appointments, and anxiety-free care focused on prevention, not the upsell.

We’re not interested in an incrementally better approach to dental - we want to redesign and rebuild the industry from the ground up. Early and well-funded, join Rinse and be a part of the most ambitious startup in the industry's history and work with passionate experts poised to make it happen.
