About Heartbeat Health

Heartbeat is cardiology, modernized. It is reinventing the field of cardiology by combining technology and top-notch specialist level knowledge to focus on the early diagnosis and management of heart disease and its risk factors.

Job Description

Heartbeat Health is a venture-funded health tech startup in New York City. We are working to deliver the most effective, efficient, and engaging heart care in the world. By 2030, over 40% of the US population will have heart disease, with direct and indirect costs approaching $1 trillion USD. Heart disease may be the most important health crisis we confront in our time.
Imagine the potential to save over a half a million lives in the United States. Now imagine saving these lives every year. This is how many cardiovascular disease deaths are attributed to preventable factors – nearly 80%. Tackling this issue requires addressing the two major drivers of cardiovascular disease prevention and management: knowledge and behavior. 
Our product directly addresses these gaps for both patients and providers. Our members follow easy steps to improve their heart health and receive virtual guidance from a network of world-class cardiologists empowered with evidence-based insights. This simple idea of connecting people and technology with purpose gives every Heartbeat user the superpower to save millions of lives.
Our team consists of passionate and proven physicians, engineers, scientists, designers, and founders attacking this problem from first principles, applying human-centered design, and developing evidence-based AI to solve this global issue. 
We collaborate with the American College of Cardiology, and we have been recognized as one of the 150 most promising digital health startups by CB Insights. We are backed by .406 Ventures, Optum Ventures, Kindred Ventures, Lerer Hippeau, Designer Fund, and Max Ventures. We’ve been featured in TechCrunch, CNBC, Fast Company, and Forbes.
Our Ideal Candidate
We are looking for an exceptional, experienced product manager with a demonstrated track record of shipping cross-platform, user-facing applications in a digital health startup.  You have the technical and design chops to build the apps yourself with little direction, but your real superpower is guiding a diverse and talented team to realize an even bigger product vision.  
You’re an amazing problem solver who is open to new ideas, thoughtful and empathetic in your approach, pragmatic in your delivery, constantly learning, and up for a challenge. 
You elevate the work of those around you.
