Why Clipboard Health Exists:

We exist to lift as many people up the socioeconomic ladder as possible. We dramatically improve lives, by letting healthcare professionals turn extra time and ambition into career growth and financial opportunity. We achieve this with our app-based marketplace that connects healthcare facilities and healthcare professionals, allowing healthcare professionals to book on-demand shifts and healthcare facilities to access on-demand talent. Our mission is to enable healthcare professionals to work when and where they want, and to enable healthcare facilities to meet their talent needs.

About Clipboard Health:

Clipboard Health is a post-Series C, extremely fast-growing tech startup with classic two-sided network effects, revolutionizing the market for healthcare talent. We are a diverse and inclusive company with a global, remote team. We have been named one of YC’s Top Companies for two years running, and have grown 25x across all key metrics in the last 18 months. There has never been a more exciting time to join our growing team and help us serve even more healthcare professionals and healthcare facilities, who can then better serve patients.

About the Role:

We think we can build many, many more labor marketplaces than “just” our current Long Term Care business. In fact, we’ve already proven that we can run multiple verticals on the same infrastructure. We brought our Dental and Pharmacy verticals to over $1M annualized GMV each without building a single additional feature to support them.

We’ve never had more conviction that the list of attractive opportunities in front of us is as long as we’d hoped, and we have already learned a lot about how to launch and scale verticals. We install what are effectively vertical-level CEOs (“vertical owners,” in our lingo) that push through ambiguity within the following framework:

  1. Discovery: A ~2-week motion where you exclusively speak to operators and professionals in potential next verticals to get signal on the size and quality of the next opportunity.
  2. 0→1: Pushing ruthlessly towards a first transaction with the goal of getting a read on (a) pull from the market (how bad does their problem burn?) and (b) “smoothness” (how quickly do we think we could scale the business with our current infrastructure?).
  3. 1→10: Scaling aggressively to hundreds of transactions per month while building conviction that the end state of the business is financially lucrative (even if the path to get there is costly).
  4. 10→∞: Integrating the vertical into our core marketplace, i.e. systematizing our core motions like demand generation, supply acquisition, pricing, and launching new markets, with the goal of ultimately firing yourself as CEO to launch another vertical.

For those who get excited by the idea of building something out of nothing, we think being a vertical owner is the ideal role.
