Remote Global Post Series C

Short-staffing hurts healthcare workers, facilities, and patients. Fixing that is our mission.

As many as 90% of registered nurses have considered quitting the profession next year if critical workplace issues like short-staffing aren’t resolved, according to this study. This crisis touches us all, because we all need healthcare.

Clipboard Health exists to solve the problem of short-staffed facilities and to lift as many people up the socio-economic ladder as possible. To do this, we've created an efficient and transparent marketplace for healthcare facilities and healthcare professionals to fill shifts.

About Clipboard Health:

Clipboard Health is a post-Series C, extremely fast-growing tech startup with classic two-sided network effects, revolutionizing the market for healthcare talent. We are a diverse and inclusive company with a global, remote team. We have been named one of YC’s Top Companies for two years running, and have grown 25x across all key metrics in the last 18 months. There has never been a more exciting time to join our growing team and help us serve even more healthcare professionals and healthcare facilities, who can then better serve patients.

Why Clipboard Health Exists:

We exist to lift as many people up the socioeconomic ladder as possible. We dramatically improve lives, by letting healthcare professionals turn extra time and ambition into career growth and financial opportunity. We achieve this with our app-based marketplace that connects healthcare facilities and healthcare professionals, allowing healthcare professionals to book on-demand shifts and healthcare facilities to access on-demand talent. Our mission is to enable healthcare professionals to work when and where they want, and to enable healthcare facilities to meet their talent needs.

About the Role

Quants at Clipboard Health develop, deploy, and monitor mathematical algorithms to clear per-diem transactions across labor markets. They are independent thinkers who can innovate rapidly in a domain with virtually no pre-existing literature.

This is a high ownership role, where contributors own pricing problems all on their own. They're expected to find clues, design solutions, run experiments, and deploy successful strategies to the entire marketplace at an extremely fast pace (every 1-2 weeks). Quants also talk to customers, write a lot to keep the organization updated on their thinking, and participate in weekly meetings where they report on the progress of their initiatives (in writing).

What is the Pricing Team?

The Pricing Team is a new team at Clipboard Health that builds real-time, automated systems to price (and reprice) each shift in the marketplace to reflect the evolving dynamic between labor supply and demand.
