About Us
At Sprinter Health, we are on a mission to dramatically improve health outcomes for millions of people who fall through the cracks of American healthcare.
To access healthcare today, people have to take 3 hours off from work (often unpaid), drive or bus across town, hunt for parking, find room 714B in a labyrinth of a clinic, and then wait in room after room. How is this considered normal—all just to get something checked out?
We rethought all this: What if 80% of the things you do at clinics could be done in the convenience of people’s homes? What if we redesigned the healthcare experience around the person receiving services (rather than the convenience of fax machines and clinical interfaces from 1988)?
We now dispatch the highest quality, friendly medical professionals directly from patient home to patient home (think ‘DoorDash for healthcare’) making it so simple and convenient that we’re able to reach people who would otherwise not have gone in. Every time we sprint to a home is a chance to catch diseases early enough to make a difference.
About the Role:
We’re at a critical stage in our company’s trajectory and are excited to hire a strong Director of Finance. This pivotal role entails not only elevating the current financial systems and processes but also fostering a culture of financial discipline and strategic foresight. The Director of Finance will serve as a key advisor to the leadership team, offering insights and guidance that drive sound financial decision-making and operational efficiency. This is an unparalleled opportunity to leave a lasting imprint on the financial landscape of a growing organization and play a central role in shaping its future trajectory. This is a hands-on role for someone who enjoys doing both the strategic and tactical work.
We are open to this being a remote role, but preference will be given to Bay Area candidates that are willing to commute to the Menlo Park office a few times per week.
