About Working at Tidepool

We’re a small, focused team on a mission. We are inclusive, collaborative and driven. In addition to working with great people on a great project, we also offer for full-time U.S. employees:

  • A really amazing health benefits plan with $0 deductible. (We have to have a great plan: most of us have a personal connection to T1D.)
  • Flexible Spending Account matching for out-of-pocket medical expenses.
  • A 401k plan.

We’re  supportive of remote work – over half of our team works remotely from home, some internationally. We also have a great office at 450 Townsend in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco. And we have a flexible vacation policy. We do all of this because this is not just a job. We support the whole person and take the rest of life into account.  We want the happiest and healthiest you.

Recruiters: Thanks in advance for your offer to help us find great people. If you can help us pro bono, that would be awesome! But we’re a tiny non-profit and can’t afford to pay placement fees right now.
