Why you should join Starling

At Starling we're bringing the future of a proactive and predictive home based healthcare system to patients today.

In our vision, we will identify and predict chronic health exacerbations of patients earlier at home so we can activate preventive care measures in an non-emergent setting vastly improving outcomes and costs for the whole system.

Our team of serial entrepreneurs, engineers, and clinicians are building the next generation of medical products at the intersection of hardware, software, and artificial intelligence. We develop these next generation products to improve the lives of chronic care patients by passively monitoring changes in their urine over time with our AI and care team infrastructure.
