Xealth, one of Geekwire's 10 most exciting startups, is growing!

About Xealth

Xealth (xealth.io) enables healthcare teams to order digital content and services as easily as they do medications today. Patients can then access these digital health prescriptions from the provider's portal, so that they can actively manage their health — improving both client care and the doctor-client relationship. Xealth was incubated in Providence Ventures last year with an open charter to disrupt healthcare. Based in Seattle, the company was founded by the team of serial entrepreneurs behind Swype, an innovative keyboard that shipped on over one billion phones, and Boost Mobile, now Sprint's prepaid mobile service generating over five billion in revenue.


About Us

We are a seasoned group of entrepreneurs who have started and sold companies with units shipped in the billions. We are honest, capable, smart, well-balanced, but very driven to succeed. Now we're tackling healthcare—not an easy task—but we're energized by the idea that we can help both doctors and patients be better. We make positive difference in other people's lives through your work - we're not selling ads - we're revolutionizing healthcare for all. Join our small, passionate team working across the entire product stack. Also, you can enjoy our fancy new digs in Seattle's historic Smith Tower!


About You

You are hardworking, humble (but secretly you think you're pretty good), bright, a nimble thinker, problem solver, and adventure seeker (brain or body or both). You take direction but you speak up when you see issues you don't agree with; you prioritize intelligently and focus on the things that really matters; you have integrity and are ready for a challenge. You have an insatiable thirst to learn. You want to make a difference in other people's life with your work.
