Why work at Tilda?
- Be part of a moment to redefine medical innovation: Site-level research is one of the major bottlenecks in the development of new medical innovations. Through our work, we have the ability to institute a meaningful impact on millions of lives. You can help us realize that goal.
- Work with some of the best engineers and investors in the world: We are a team of repeat founders, who have built companies in cloud infrastructure, mobile security, and life sciences. Our small team of founding engineers is passion-driven and has a long history of achievement. Our investors include leading VCs and some of the largest healthcare organizations in the United States.
- Tackle our most interesting and impactful problems: Our team is still small, and people wear many hats. You'd jump between product, marketing, internal tools, process — participating in every phase from inception to implementation. Absolutely no boredom.
- Join us at a magical time: We've hit revenue growth and product-market fit, which gives us a huge green field to work with. You'd join at the perfect time to shape what we build and how we grow.
