Full Stack Software Engineer

San Francisco, CA

Kit (Kit.com) has turned the home into the exam room of the future, making health testing simpler, easier and more reliable for patients. With Kit, patients no longer have to go into a doctor’s office to receive certain exams or visit a lab for a diagnostic test—they can do it all from the comfort of their home.


Kit remains as an independent subsidiary of Ro and enables other leading healthcare companies, as well as telehealth providers and hospitals, to send a test kit to a patient's home with the click of a button. Kit’s office and CLIA and CAP-accredited clinical laboratory are located in the Dogpatch district in downtown San Francisco.


Since 2017, Ro has facilitated more than eight million digital healthcare visits in nearly every county in the United States, including 98% of primary care deserts. Ro has been named a Best Place to Work in 2021 by Fortune, Inc., and Forbes, as well as Fast Company's 2019 list of the World's Most Innovative Companies.


This position is an in-office, San Francisco-based position.
