Kinsa’s mission is to stop the spread of contagious illness through early detection and early response. To accomplish this mission, we’ve spent the last 8 years deploying an extensive smart thermometer network that has proven to accurately predict how flu is spreading across the US weeks ahead of other systems. Over the past 8 years, Kinsa thermometers have guided millions of users to care to get better faster, while aggregating population health insights to stop the spread of illness.

This mission is perhaps more important today than ever before, as our global society struggles to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 18, Kinsa launched, which showed unusually high levels of fever in the population — in many cases, this has been confirmed as the first and only signal of COVID-19 spreading in a community. Kinsa’s findings have been profiled in the New York Times 3 times in as many months (here, here and here), and have support from public health experts, scientists, business leaders, and politicians from both sides of the aisle.

A career at Kinsa is an opportunity to both make a real difference in public health and to work alongside a world-class team of incredible professionals – we can’t wait to meet you!

A whole company centered around making the world a healthier place? This isn’t just lip service – it’s who we are and why we do what we do. And it has a number of benefits, such as ensuring that we’re all aligned and collaborative, focused on growing ourselves and those around us whenever we can. It also tends to attract people who aren’t just smart – they are also kind, humble and passionate.


Kinsa offers the unique challenge of a product at the intersection of hardware and software that collects unprecedented types of anonymous illness information. We have best in class analysts, engineers, designers, marketers and passionate spirits that believe together, we can change the world. We collaborate to give families the tools they need to stay healthy while trying to stop illness from spreading.


Our work is serious, but that doesn’t mean we’re no fun! Before COVID-19, our office in downtown SF and Portland came with ping pong, beanbags, free beer, snacks, and weekly team lunches. Now, we’re all remote but working hard to keep the team spirit alive! Virtual events, socially-distant happy hours and a very active #petsofkinsa slack channel are more our speed these days. Of course, we also check all of the boxes when it comes to a good health plan and benefits.
