About Suki

Suki is a leading technology company that provides AI-powered voice solutions for healthcare. Its mission is to reimagine the healthcare tech stack, making it invisible and assistive to lift the administrative burden from physicians.

Job Description

What we want to accomplish and why we need you
Suki is creating a new category in the health-tech space: the digital assistant. Our product will be the voice user interface for healthcare. What does that mean? Currently, doctors use electronic health record systems to take notes on patient encounters. This is a digital version of the paper charts that you may have seen in your doctor’s office or on TV. These systems can be hard to navigate and time-consuming to manage. Doctors would rather spend that time with patients. We are creating the solution. Doctors that use Suki already spend over 70% less time on administrative tasks, and we’re striving to do even better. Come and join us! 
We are a user-driven company and are committed to making sure every pixel of our product is in service of the doctor. We’re a team of technologists, clinicians, and industry experts working together to push the limits on technology used in medicine. We’re confident enough to move fast and talented enough not to break things. Check out this short video to learn more about our mission and our culture.
What you will do every day
You will play the essential role of representing the physician’s point of view both to external stakeholders and internally within Suki. You will be the primary bridge between the worlds of technology and clinical medicine.
You will help doctors and health system executives imagine how Suki can transform clinical workflow. You will showcase Suki’s technology using believable and engaging clinical cases. You will listen deeply to the needs of clinicians, and figure out what problems Suki can solve for them. You will help our team configure and deploy Suki so that doctors get the most out of the product’s current capabilities. You will bring your insights back to the product development team so that Suki’s future capabilities solve the right problems for doctors.
While you know how to work hard, you also know how to have fun at work, make friends with your colleagues and contribute to our diverse and inclusive culture. You will contribute to making doctors’ lives better by reducing the administrative burden they face every day.
