About Cake Health
Cake Health is looking for brilliant people to help us fix the U.S. health care system[1]. We believe that your benefits and care options should be described in simple language, that you should always have immediate access to all of your data, and that you should always know what’s covered by your insurance.
Our team has built some great momentum in just the last ten months, going from idea to prototype to private beta in May, and then launching Cake Health to the public in September at TechCrunch Disrupt, where we made it to the final round. We came away from the conference with a large and growing base of enthusiastic users and potential partners. We’ve raised money from some of the top angels and funds in Silicon Valley, and have been featured in Forbes, Wired, TechCrunch, Business Insider, and the Financial Times, to name a few.
We have a big vision for where Cake Health can go from here, which is why we’re looking to build our team. You will be a critical team member that will have significant responsibility. You are bright, hard-working and relentlessly resourceful[2], and most importantly, you are excited by the challenges and opportunity for an early-stage startup to change the world.
