Associate Product Manager
San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Friday, June 2, 2023
Forward is on a bold mission to make high quality healthcare available to a billion people across the globe. We’re building the world’s most advanced healthcare platform from the ground up, combining hardware, software and doctors under one roof. As an early member of our world class product team, you’ll have a key role in rebuilding our country’s most important and most broken industry from first principles.
Forward was founded in January 2016 by former executives and engineering leaders from Google and Uber. We are funded by some of the world's best investors and entrepreneurs including Founder's Fund, Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Eric Schmidt (Google/Alphabet Chairman), Marc Benioff (Salesforce Founder), and Garrett Camp (Uber co-Founder).
Many industries have successfully cut out the middleman by selling directly to consumers. However, no one has ever accomplished this in healthcare—arguably the most important and personal industry to consumers—until now. We know that at the heart of our success is our team. Become a part of the growth team that is focused on bringing better health, happiness and peace of mind to consumers everywhere

What You'll Do:
- Work on an inspiring team alongside our founders, PMs, designers and engineers hailing from top companies like: Google, Amazon, Facebook, Uber, Palantir, IDEO
- Combine the best of humans and technology to deliver an amazing user experience and define how the world’s first at-scale healthcare system should work
- Own the roadmap and implementation of our biggest projects; think Google vision + startup speed
- Work across a truly “full stack” product -- Forward spans hardware, software, industrial design, data science, service design, and more
- Challenge yourself working on a massive scope (many of our products could have been their own startup - we built our own telemedicine app, exam room screen, body scanner and electronic medical record)
- Lead interdisciplinary functional teams of designers, engineers, doctors and operations to build “clinical programs” - imagine redesigning dermatology from scratch and you start to get the idea
- Learn what it takes to build a world-changing startup, both by osmosis and through constant interaction with our founders
- User-obsessed. You are deeply empathetic, constantly putting yourself in the shoes of our users (whether that be our patients or great clinical team)
- Impact-driven. You care about your impact upon the world. That means more building and less talking as you work toward something that has a chance to change people’s lives
- A Renaissance (wo)man. You’re curious. You’re always learning. You’re as comfortable talking shop with an doctor as you are with a designer or engineer
- A good helicopter. You can alternate between 10,000 foot and 10 foot views easily, and at the right time. Product vision? Fit-and-finish? All in a day’s work
- Creative. You don’t need to be asked to think outside of the box… you know when to climb hills and when to jump them
- Scrappy. You’re a hustler who will get your hands dirty and protect your builders at every turn
- A leader. You’re kind, charismatic and humble. Teams want to be in the trenches with you, and to build something great by your side
- 1-2+ years of Product Management experience shipping impactful products and features
- 1-2+ years of Engineering experience working in collaboration with product and a strong product intuition
- BA/BS in STEM major required (CS, CE, EE, ME, symbolic systems, Physics, Math or Chemistry)
- Startup experience preferred
