Job Description

About Digbi Health:

We are a team of doctors, software engineers, data scientists, genomic experts, clinicians, and proven business builders focused on empowering over 100 million American adults who struggle under the misguidance of one-size-fits-all chronic care programs, and the stigma of poor self-control while fighting obesity and weight-related inflammatory digestive disorders, skin condition, chronic pain, hypertension, elevated cholesterol & diabetes. 

Making an Impact: 

Digbi is a leading Precision Digital Care Platform for inflammatory comorbidities associated with gut health and obesity. The risk of these illnesses varies significantly across ethnicity and gender because they are rooted in the interactions between a person’s gut microbiome, genetics, and lifestyle risk factors. We are the first company that has successfully integrated gut microbiome, genetic, blood, and lifestyle based risk signals to provide personalized care for a diverse workforce and their families.

Our care programs are vetted and paid for by large insurance carriers and employers because they demonstrably deliver superior health outcomes and financial savings.   

We are actively engaged in human trials with leading medical schools.

  • Accountable - We are responsible for building care systems that will bend the curve of healthcare cost in the US, while solving the root cause of illnesses vs. masking and managing symptoms. We encourage employees to act like an owner. So whenever you run into a problem, try to fix things first. If you can't, give constructive, actionable data driven feedback. We are a zero whining zone!
  • Customers come first - Without customers, we won’t exist and we should always put them first.
  • Build antifragility - We want everyone to take risks. We expect people to make mistakes and will support risk-taking as long as they are bound by ethics and are intended to be in the best interest of shareholders and customers. World-class companies lean into uncertainty, take risks to grow and get stronger.
