At Vida, we empower individuals to overcome chronic mental and physical health conditions, once and for all. The impact of chronic conditions on healthcare is immense: in the US alone, chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease drive 80% of the $3 trillion healthcare spending, which is at 18% of GDP. One in 3 individuals has a chronic health condition, and 1 in 4 struggles with mental health.

Vida provides expert, personalized, on-demand health coaching and programs from a network of experienced health care providers and leading medical institutions. Vida is a next generation continuous care platform for both consumers and businesses, combining a consumer mobile app, an enterprise care platform offering on demand 24/7 solutions for chronic conditions. Vida platform runs in the cloud, captures real-time data from 100+ devices and apps, and integrates back to the employer, payer, and provider. We are trusted by Fortune 1000 companies, major national payers and large providers to enable their employees live their healthiest lives.

Vida is authorized to do business in many, but not all, states. If you are not located in or able to work from a state where Vida is registered, you will not be eligible for employment. Please speak with your recruiter to learn more about where Vida is registered.


Our Medical Team is the vanguard of Vida’s mission. Our task is to scale our services into millions of patients without sacrificing any of the transformational outcomes or human touches that make them special. Doing so requires a crack team with the most diverse skills in the company spanning computer science, data engineering, clinical operations, and medicine. Doing so requires a team with diverse skills in technology and medicine. Thus, we are looking for a dynamic physician (MD or DO) leader.

Our team shares a passion for learning and innovation, and so we take supporting career growth and skill development very seriously. Our team motto: 1.01**365 = 37.8 Learning compounds!
