CNA Hospice Aide
Guaranteed is a care company that makes tough moments easier. By blending at-home treatment with cutting-edge technology, we’re here to deliver care how you want it. Guaranteed is backed by some of the best investors in the game (including: BrandProject, Precursor, Springbank Collective, Lakehouse and Cake Ventures) and have raised $6.5 million in seed funding - one of the largest seed rounds for a Black female solo founder.
Our goal is to provide tech-enabled hospice services in a hybrid setting: best in class in-person and telemedicine care. Our care providers are highly-trained healthcare professionals focused on support, comfort, and dignity. We are obsessed with providing for patients and families and want to change the cultural conversation around death.
Who You Are
You are obsessed with patient-experience and delivering excellence in care, support, and comfort through technology.
You are driven, in work and in life, by your compassion for people.
You believe the US Healthcare system is deeply problematic and inequitable, and you want to help architect a solution.
You are always learning new things from your friends, you colleagues, your communities, and the world.
You thrive when building alongside diverse teams, opinions, and cross-discipline roles.
You are more than comfortable in a 0 to 1 startup. You manage yourself as well as anyone else and you love iterating quickly.
Who We Are
We are equally obsessed with patient-experience, and also caregiver-experience, family-experience, and care provider-experience. We strive to support everyone affected by death.
We are compassionate by nature.
We dream of healthcare systems that are more equitable and more human - and we work everyday to make them that way.
Medicine often ignores end of life care - we don’t. We talk about death. We talk about dying, about grief, about losing our patients and losing our loved ones.
We love teaching what we know and bringing humility to what don’t.
