Work With Meaning
We believe work should sit at the intersection of what you love doing, what you’re good at, and what the world needs. We try to offer the kind of work/passion fusion that turns into the reason you spring out of bed in the morning. In return we look for uncapped drive, outstanding capabilities, and an innate desire to make a dent on the world - by revolutionising healthcare.
To Care Is Human
Human-centric care is at the core of everything we do: care by individuals, for individuals. It just so happens that machines can simplify, enhance and strengthen our human prowess at taking care of each other. At Holmusk, we’re people people, crafting technological products that empower better human interactions, at scale.
Ask All The Questions
The path to success is not predetermined - this domain is evolving at an insuppressible pace; it’s experimental, demands a predilection to risk, and a readiness to commit originality, skill and pragmatic momentum. It’s never “just a desk job”; we care fiercely about what we do, and often find ourselves roaming uncharted territory in the search for solutions. We celebrate intellectual ambition, imagination and infinite curiosity.
Stay Humble, Stay Hungry
We live for that start-up hyper hustle vibe. We thrive on flexibility and try not to squash creativity with too many rules. On the flip side, we roll our sleeves up, get out and learn from our product users, order in for late night sprints; see dawn from the wrong end on occasion. We’re humble and hungry! Innovative young companies inherently entail elating highs and challenging lows. We knuckle down and weather, because when the results come they’re glorious.
Stand Apart, Together
We stand apart from what others are doing in healthcare because of our diversity. Our work necessitates deep interdisciplinary collaboration: we couldn’t do what we do without the kaleidoscope of inputs ranging from medical professionals to data scientists, behavioural economists to engineers, creative designers and engineers. We’ve been drawn here from all corners of the globe, and celebrate widely varying perspectives, backgrounds and approaches. Our differences make us so strong, together.
We are always on the lookout for talented and passionate individuals to join our growing team. You will have the opportunity to do what you love, and develop any aspects you're interested in.
