Tiny Health is the first research-backed platform to profile a baby’s microbes during their first 1,000 days, which begin at conception. This includes the mother’s microbiome within 9 months of pregnancy and the baby’s microbiome within their first two years. Catching patterns of gut dysbiosis unique to pregnancy and infancy can give parents the opportunity to protect against immune-mediated diseases that are programmed during this window of development. Research shows that these imbalances may lead to chronic conditions such as eczema, food allergies, asthma, type I diabetes, and obesity later in life.
Using at-home test kits, next generation sequencing, a proprietary knowledge base, and AI technology, Tiny Health provides key insights during this critical period as the microbiome rapidly takes shape and sets the trajectory for lifelong health. This helps us to generate personalized, actionable recommendations and early interventions that give each baby the best possible start in life.
🚀 Crazy ambitious mission: we're reinventing how we should think about pregnancy and infant wellness, leveraging all the exciting research in the early-life microbiome space. This is an opportunity to have a trajectory-altering impact on humanity
🤑 Competitive equity compensation structure: we don't have "founders" and "early employees" - only founding team members. As a founding member, you will be granted shares instead of options (on top of other generous benefits)

👾 Lots of room to experiment, iterate, and build: we have a huge vision and you'll have the opportunity to grow rapidly and influence the strategic direction of the company (and we have 2+ years of runway to make that happen)
👓 Transparent culture: we do the right thing: by the team, users, stakeholders. When you have complete trust in your teammates, you can be much more open and move faster ;)
Remote-First Company: While our founder is based in the SF Bay Area, we have a really diverse and international team from the midwest, east coast, Europe and South America. As long as you can work within 3 hours from the 9-6pm PST timezone, it doesn't matter where you live.
