Who we are:
Our mission is to help our members achieve their health goals. Our vision is to be their health concierge and help them discover what works so they can live healthy ever after.

Founding a company is a chance to do things differently. We have the opportunity to build a culture that prioritizes health and empathy. We believe in creating a transparent, inclusive, and mission-driven company with a focus on building great products that empower people to make intelligent decisions. We want to build a company that everyone wants to work for, starting with ourselves.

• High-Quality Food: Healthy snacks, daily lunch, and dinner if you’re working late.
• Flexible Hours: We trust you to get your work done. We accommodate night owls and early birds through 11 am - 4 pm shared in-person hours and a flexible WFH policy.
• Unlimited Vacation: Minimum 2 weeks per year with at least 5 days in a row. Part of being healthy is taking time off to relax and recharge.
Health, Dental & Wellness: Full Medical and Dental Insurance coverage plus a Wellness stipend to support healthy habits.
• Choice of Workstation: We spend a lot of time with our technology; make sure it's the ideal setup for you.
• Offsites & Team Building: We believe in building an empathetic, inclusive, and mission-driven culture. Offsites allow all of us to come together and get on the same page so we can move forward together while also having a great time.
• Great Swag: Jackets, shirts, backpacks, water bottles and hoodies so good your friends will want to join.

Qualitative Health is an equal opportunity employer; in keeping with our beliefs and goals, no employee or applicant will face discrimination or harassment based on gender, sexual orientation, race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, marital domestic partner status, physical ability, gender identity, disability status, or veteran status. Above and beyond discrimination and harassment based on 'protected categories,' we also strive to prevent other, subtler forms of inappropriate behavior (e.g., stereotyping) from ever gaining a foothold in our company culture. Whether blatant or hidden, barriers to success have no place at Qualitative Health.
