Full Stack Engineering Lead, Founding Team

About Birches Health:

Online gambling has taken over the US. More than 175m Americans now regularly bet on sports and the rates of gambling addiction have skyrocketed since online gambling’s legalization. As widespread gambling creates record levels of addiction, debt, and bankruptcy, millions of problem gamblers still cannot access specialized, comprehensive care that they desperately need.
At Birches Health, we’re beating the online gambling epidemic with virtual therapy for gambling addiction from specialized clinicians. Our care is covered by insurance and state funding to ensure access to treatment for problem gamblers. We work with patients throughout their gambling addiction journey to improve clinical outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.
Our mission is to build the medical and technological infrastructure for behavioral addiction in the US to make sure millions of patients receive the highest quality clinical outcomes and path to recovery they deserve. We’re backed by leading healthcare and gaming investors including General Catalyst, Will Ventures, Haystack, Operator Partners, and C-suite angels at private and public companies.
Join us to bring addiction care into the present day.
