Director of Engineering

Who we are

At Ayble Health, our vision is to revolutionize the standard of care for chronic GI conditions like IBS, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. We combine behavior science, clinical protocols, machine learning and predictive AI to help chronic GI patients get better, faster - all with the human touch of a dietitian/nutritionist and certified health coach. Our patented personalized nutrition program has been shown to improve clinical symptoms in 81% of users with a 92% satisfaction rating by finding and removing patients' unique trigger foods. Our research is published in some of gastroenterology’s highest impact factor journals. Patients can find Ayble through our physician partners, their insurers or online.
We are backed by some of the country's most well-known venture capital groups, including early investors in Headspace, Classpass, Venmo, Lyft, Bonobos, and Snap. We are led by a founder who has firsthand experience living with a GI condition for a decade and a diverse team of clinicians, academics, operators and hustlers.
Ayble Health is headquartered in Boston and is building a remote-friendly team.

The role

We’re looking for passionate, empathetic, and ambitious hustlers who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves. As a Director of Engineering, you will be part of the founding team as we design, build and launch the first comprehensive digital solution for GI that delights users and delivers real, tangible results for patients.

Talk to users (patients), providers, health plans, employers and other stakeholders to gain a deeper understanding of the business and the Ayble Health customer base.
