At K Health we are on a mission to give everyone access to smarter answers and quality health care that costs dramatically less.

We’ve built the most informed primary care platform in existence, combining the knowledge of thousands of doctors with deep clinical data from around the world. By applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to medicine, we are solving the healthcare inequities of access and affordability and constructing the future of care for us all.

Since our founding in 2016, K Health has raised over $270M in VC funding and our recent valuation brought us to Unicorn status.


K Health is a venture-backed, fast-growing start-up that aims to make healthcare information accessible to the world. Our approach is unique in that we are a combination of doctors, mathematicians, data scientists, data architects, and engineers working together to create a complex, challenging, consumer-facing product. K Health is an exciting, accelerating workplace, and there's no better time to join the team than right now. We are building a team of energetic, forward thinking software developers to ensure that our software architecture supports and helps drive the dramatic growth we expect.

We are looking for a highly-motivated and talented Senior DevOps Lead to lead the execution of a DevOps team in a challenging, innovative, fast-paced environment.
