Job Description

About Openloop
When our CEO & Co-Founder was a kid, he thought his dad must be the best doctor in the world. Why else were people driving from all over for their appointments? He realized that, while his dad was a great doctor, he was also one of the only specialists available in his rural community.

That’s why we built OpenLoop. We’re passionate about powering telehealth companies in all 50 states of US to expand access to affordable, convenient, and quality care. We do this by connecting our network of leading clinicians with innovative digital health companies, and managing many of the HR and Operations challenges that come with licensing, credentialing, insurance, PC groups and scheduling, all through our SaaS platform.

We have a flat organizational structure. Everyone is encouraged to bring ideas to the table and make things happen. This fits with our core values of Autonomy, Competence and Belonging, as we want everyone to feel empowered and supported to do their best work.
