Manager, People Partners

HR & Talent Remote

Wheel is the health tech company powering the next generation of healthcare. The entire healthcare industry is racing to serve patients online, but outdated business models, technologies, and mindsets are continuing to get in the way. We pioneered a new way for companies to build and scale virtual care. 

Instead of starting from scratch, companies can leverage Wheel’s virtual care platform and nationwide clinician network to develop a virtual care service — bypassing the 15 months and $15 million it can take to build from the ground up. Today, Wheel powers the most innovative companies in healthcare today, including digital health companies, clinical lab networks, retailers, traditional healthcare providers, and tech companies.

We’re a team of experts and innovators working together to solve some of healthcare’s most challenging problems in order to put great care within everyone’s reach. We’ve raised $216 million in funding and backed by top investors including Lightspeed Venture Partners, Tiger Global, Coatue, CRV, Tusk Ventures, Salesforce Ventures, and Silverton Partners. 

In the last year we’re proud to have been named:

  • Forbes Next Billion Dollar Startups 
  • Built In’s Best Remote-First Places to Work
  • CB Insights Digital Health 150 
  • Business Insider 30 Leaders under 40 Changing Healthcare 

We’re looking for people to join our team who share a passion for making a positive difference in healthcare and feel connected to our core values.
