About Sitka

At Sitka they believe that EVERYONE deserves access to specialized healthcare. Founded in late 2018 by Founder/CEO Kelsey Mellard, their mission is to foster informed, effective, and trusted care delivery for all patients by every provider. Timely access to specialty care is often out of reach for too many Americans, often because of the inefficiencies of the delivery system. Sitka is reimagining specialty care by giving primary care providers access to network of specialist physicians. Sitka’s platform enables virtual consults on patient diagnosis and care between PCPs and specialists. With Sitka, patients avoid unnecessary specialist visits and receive answers in hours, not weeks, all while keeping PCPs at the helm.

Sitka’s women-led leadership team has decades of experience in medicine, technology, policy, and product to help address what they already knew to be true: the current healthcare system deserves thoughtful innovation. In addition, their investors are leaders in investing in early stage healthcare companies. Most recently they closed a Series A round of $14 million led by Venrock.

Sitka is committed to bringing a diverse and inclusive team together focused on solving specialized healthcare.


As a fully remote company, they take community and culture seriously! From weekly culture events to biannual in-person retreats, Sitkanauts are encouraged to build social connections and share their passions with the collective. At Sitka, they believe they’re all responsible for building the community and culture they want. Sitka’s values are a reflection of this intention and inform every aspect of their business and product.

About the job

Sitka is looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join their small but growing engineering team of 10, and join Sitka on their journey to help patients and their doctors unlock access to specialty expertise.
