About the role

Background Information

SiPhox Health is a hardware-first health-tech company.

Backed by Y Combinator, Intel, and Khosla Ventures we've spent 3.5 years building a hardware platform for at-home consumer blood diagnostics. In parallel, we launched (October 2022) a B2C + B2B2C platform that fuses mail-in blood biomarker testing with wearables data for personalized health insights.

We are the only D2C diagnostics or DaaS (Diagnostics as a Service) company that builds blood testing hardware.

Company Mission

SiPhox Health is focused on increasing human healthspan by:

  1. Deploying a consumer blood testing platform that delivers lab-quality results in the home
  2. Building an ecosystem around this platform to enable data-driven healthcare
  3. Democratizing access through chip-scale integration/Moore’s law (cost ⬇️ scalability ⬆️ performance ⬆️)

Company structure

SiPhox Health has two divisions. SiPhox Home, the R&D team working on our next-generation blood testing platform, and SiPhox Kit, our business division which delivers more traditional home blood testing to 1000s of end users (and growing) every month. SiPhox Kit will be using the SiPhox Home hardware to augment its current offering.
