About Eargo

We’re Eargo. A company made up of ENT surgeons, tech geeks and dreamers, united in our belief that people should be able to hear life to the fullest. Because the world is full of great things to hear. And because, well, we really like people.

Job Description

We’re Eargo and we’re on a mission to disrupt and transform the hearing health industry. We’re looking for those passionate individuals who jump out of bed in the morning dreaming of new ways to improve the lives of our customers. We’re tech geeks and dreamers. We believe that every voice is unique and every idea is worth talking about. Moreover, we believe in passion and having fun. Because it takes passion to change the world and if you have passion in what you’re doing, you naturally have fun doing it.
 
Over 44 million Americans currently experience hearing loss and 73% of them do nothing about it. Their denial has many different shades, but more often than not it’s related to social stigma. We at Eargo exist to give people their hearing without the social stigma so that they can go on being the cool person they are. That’s why we get out of bed in the morning and we take that seriously. And we’re looking for some great minds to join us on our journey.
