Senior Full-stack Engineer - WorkUp Health

Menlo Ventures

Menlo Ventures

New York, USA
Posted on Saturday, June 17, 2023
Work·up (noun)

  • a diagnostic examination of a patient
  • a period of training or preparation, typically for a specific operation

The company

WorkUp is building tools that allow providers to invest in developing the talent needed for tomorrow’s healthcare. We’re building a software platform to empower health systems to engage, expand, and convert their clinical talent pipeline.

Healthcare is facing a dire clinical workforce shortage. More than 20% of clinical healthcare jobs go unfilled, resulting in high cost temporary staffing, delayed services, and even facility closings. This is a challenge the healthcare system is underprepared to face.

On the flip side, the next generation of talent is seeking careers (not just jobs) and are looking to partner with their employers on career paths that result in ever increasing skills, impact, and quality of life.

WorkUp is led by a trio of entrepreneurs who’ve collectively launched and scaled five successful tech platforms. We’re excited to build tools to help providers and talent co-invest in the skills needed for tomorrow’s healthcare. WorkUp is backed by accomplished investors at Menlo Ventures and Fika Ventures.
