About the Company

Tembo Health offers services and technology designed to make managing dementia and senior health easier. Despite accounting for less than 9% of the Medicare population, dementia seniors account for more than double of plan costs, inpatient hospitalizations, and emergency room visits. Meanwhile, 55% of PCPs report that there are not enough dementia specialists in their communities to meet senior demand and 50% of PCPs report that they do not feel adequately prepared to provide on-going care for individuals with dementia. Our dementia care management solution allows for patients, caregivers, primary care physicians, and health plans to handle the complexities and burdens of dementia care while also reducing medical spend for this population.

We're venture backed, with funding from big tech investors like Bloomberg Beta, B Capital, Resolute, AARP and led by a cadre of entrepreneurs who have built and scaled unicorn tech companies (e.g., Flatiron, Oscar, Imagen). Our team includes startup veterans, physicians, and more. We're here to make a big, meaningful impact on healthcare and have fun while we're at it. We're looking for smart, mission-driven, goal-oriented team members who are creative problem solvers and big dreamers. If that sounds like you, let's talk!

  • Great Ideas. It doesn't matter whose idea it is, if it's a great idea, let's do it!
  • Get Stuff Done. Ideas are nothing without implementation. So go ahead and try things, break stuff, learn and improve.

In line with our values, we look for people who are

  • Customer-Focused. You are able to identify and work towards what customers want and need. You see customer satisfaction as tantamount to success.
  • Smart and Curios / Solution Oriented. You're constantly learning and applying your knowledge to find innovative solutions.

  • Efficient + Effect / Good at Time Management. You know what it takes to accomplish your goal and aren't afraid to put in the work. More importantly, you know how to ruthlessly prioritize and focus on the important activities.

Our team features a wide breadth of experience in various industries and functions. This means we're bringing different ideas to the table that yield lively discussions and creative solutions that couldn't happen with industry experts alone.
