About Hinge Health

Hinge Health’s mission is to rebuild healthcare delivery for the 21st Century. Chronic conditions are now the number one public health concern around the world, and yet our tools to deliver care are firmly stuck in the 20th Century. To solve this, we are digitizing the delivery of care - starting with musculoskeletal conditions. 

We’ve already achieved some remarkable things: The people we’ve worked with have overcome chronic pain, avoided surgeries, returned to work, and got back to doing the things they love. How do we know? Well, they’ve told us. And that’s a pretty rewarding thing to work on.

In joining Hinge Health you’ll be getting involved at a leadership level with a team that has just raised Series A investment and is still small, potent and rapidly signing customers. We’re firm believers in letting you own your role and continuous learning, both within your area of expertise and from other members of our diverse team. Finally, as an extra sweetener, we have lunch together every day (on the company dime) at one of the many restaurants in Downtown San Francisco, to relax, appreciate our team members, and take in the big picture of why we’re here. 

At Hinge Health we’re a team with a big vision for how healthcare should work, and we’re really passionate about what we do. If you’d like to help us redefine healthcare for the 21st Century we’d love to hear from you.
