About the Company

Change the future of dementia care with Tembo Health. We’re making it effortless to manage dementia and senior health by deploying evidence-based clinical pathways and embedding technology built for seniors. Most PCPs may be uncomfortable diagnosing and managing dementia, leaving families feeling confused and unsupported. Making matters worse, dementia families can see medical costs, hospitalizations, and ER visits increase exponentially over time. With our innovative dementia care management solution, we empower patients, caregivers, primary care physicians, and health plans to navigate the complexities and burden of dementia care. Together, let's create a brighter and easier future for senior care.

We're venture backed, with funding from big tech investors like Bloomberg Beta, B Capital, Resolute, AARP and led by a cadre of entrepreneurs who have built and scaled unicorn tech companies (e.g., Flatiron, Oscar, Imagen). Our team includes startup veterans, physicians, and more. We're here to make a big, meaningful impact on healthcare and have fun while we're at it. We're looking for smart, mission-driven, goal-oriented team members who are creative problem solvers and big dreamers. If that sounds like you, let's talk!

  • Families First. We're here to make the lives of families better and every activity has this in mind.

  • Great Ideas. It doesn't matter whose idea it is, if it's a great idea, let's do it!

  • Get Stuff Done. Ideas are nothing without implementation. So go ahead and try things, break stuff, learn and improve.

In line with our values, we look for people who are

  • Person-centered. You are able to identify and work towards what each person wants and needs. You see satisfaction as tantamount to success.

  • Solution Oriented. You're constantly learning and applying your knowledge to find innovative solutions. You love sharing your ideas and workshopping ideas to get to great answers. You're excited by the prospect of iterating on products and processes to make them better over time.

  • Efficient & Effective. You know what it takes to accomplish your goal and aren't afraid to put in the work. More importantly, you know how to ruthlessly prioritize and focus on the important activities.
