About Canopy 

At Canopy Innovations, we are a software development health company that is transforming the way our healthcare system communicates with underserved patients. The language barrier undermines quality of care for the 27+ million patients who have limited-English proficiency, and creates enormous workflow and financial constraints to the health delivery organizations that serve them. With support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Canopy has developed a suite of products to tackle these challenges. 

We offer an exceptional opportunity for a conscientious and ambitious individual who is dissatisfied with the status quo and the glacial research-to-impact speed, who is energized by the possibility of applying the scientific rigor of academia to the trenches of software development and community-based evaluation, and who is unafraid to embrace the grueling challenges and frustrating uncertainties that the high-risk, high-reward startup world entails.
