Job Description

About Anima

At Anima, we're building the next generation care enablement platform for healthcare teams. You'll be building a product that saves lives; multiple Clinical Engineers (ex-MDs and fullstack Software Engineers) quit lucrative medicine jobs to join Anima for that very reason!

Our mission is to deliver precision medicine to everyone in the world, within 24 hours. We know exactly how to get there and we’re moving ferociously with focus.

Our ambition is to be the OS for all of healthcare and life sciences, through a proprietary active learning, crowdsourcing training architecture - we call it Anima 2.0. We already have one of the biggest, highest quality labelled datasets in the world.

We're profitable, growing at 100% MoM, and went from $0 ARR to $1m ARR in 6 months from launch (Apr '22). We’re on track to hit $5m ARR by EOY ‘23. That's pretty unprecedented in SaaS, never mind healthcare!

Backed by a top 1% VC and Y Combinator (home of epic companies like Airbnb, Coinbase, Stripe) 🚀

We’ve raised a large Series A just 7 months after launch, in the first bear market of a decade. We were one of the hottest companies of YC’s W21 batch and raised our first round in 4 days, led by Hummingbird (consistently top 1% of global returns).

We have a pretty unique hacker culture at Anima with a flat hierarchy: almost everyone is technical and can code. A 'knights of the round table' structure and thinking from first principles is core to our culture, and is how we've made such rapid progress. It's reflected in how we operate:

  1. There's no separate founder, product & engineering teams - instead, we have Clinical Engineers who are both their own customers (MDs) and are strong fullstack engs, collaborating with pure software engineers. Due to the quality of our team, there's a heavy focus on coaching and teaching, with minimal to no line management.

    • We've been able to make huge strides in the NHS because we all deeply understand the problem, grading tasks based on our engineering expertise, and real life clinical trade-offs. This deep domain knowledge is ultimately how we integrated with the major electronic health records (EMIS and SystmOne) in just 4 months.
  2. We're relentlessly resourceful - in 14 months, we've built an extremely loved enterprise app (NPS = 87) that users have said 'seems too good to be true'. Anima can take an information complete medical history as good or better than a typical human doctor, and automates patient comms and clinical notes.

  3. Anima is a safe haven for free thinkers and we've been careful to build a culture where everyone feels comfortable being their complete unfiltered self, sharing their honest thoughts, feelings without ever needing to self-censor. Our hiring acceptance rate is around 0.5-0.8%, which is lower than YC. You're joining hyper elite special forces, and your crewmates will never let you down or waste your time.

  4. We hire talented people who think from first principles and have high growth potential - great decision makers who deserve to have complete autonomy and are forces of nature when empowered with it. Decisions are never made in isolation by the founders. All information is transparently available to the whole team on our Notion - every meeting, decision, success, failure.

  5. At the same time, we are deeply collaborative, and through mutual and self-challenge, we converge towards the optimum, and decisively execute. We are united by child-like intellectual curiosity and experiment and wander freely when the right path isn’t clear. We believe all future managers should be formidable individual contributors & domain experts.

  6. We hire candidates from all over the world. We have remote hubs in EU West, NA and India, and plans to seed some in person teams in those areas too in the next 12 months (in addition to our fully remote teams). We offer unlimited holidays and flexibility over work schedule and location.

  7. We have a good time :) we've had team lunches in Duck & Waffle, Breakfast Club, dumplings in Chinatown, had private screenings in our own cinema, booked out the Sky Pool etc. We get the whole team together at least twice a year for team retreats, with the last one in Brittany, France and the upcoming one in Mexico!

My name is Shun, a medical doctor and CEO of Anima. Thanks for checking out our job ad! We’re tackling a problem that has affected everyone in some way:

  • Globally, millions die every year because their medical problems aren’t treated quickly enough. Hundreds of millions suffer pain, worry and discomfort needlessly because of long waiting times.

  • We’ve built ambitious software to automate the entire healthcare workflow - from history taking consultations, to report abstraction, to recommending & saving a coded action plan for the patient, ready for a human doctor to greenlight.

  • By doing this, we get patients optimal care within 24 hours and 10x the clinical workflow in the process. It's a win-win for patients and healthcare professionals.

We are pretty unique among health techs: we have both medical and engineering domain expertise - there are 4 doctors working full time at Anima, as well as 'pure' software engineers. I wrote the first backend in Node, 80% of which is still used. As a doctor and former HM Treasury health policy advisor managing £4bn budgets in UK health spending, I have full stack domain knowledge and personal experience of the problem we’re solving.

Like me, the whole Anima team have personal experience of the problem we're solving: we're building what we wished we had as doctors.
