Do you want to design a better world?

Join us! Kinsa was founded with a mission to stop illness from spreading by knowing where and when it starts. We’ve done this by transforming the first device you grab when sickness strikes - the thermometer - into a sensor to detect when and where illness is rising, and communicate with those who have just fallen ill. Our connected products help people and communities stay healthy while advancing a broader mission: to create a real time map of human health in order to track — and stop — the spread of disease.

Great design is at the heart of everything we do, and there’s no shortage of exciting design challenges at Kinsa. Our products have won numerous design, tech and parenting awards, and have been featured in an Apple TV commercial, The New York Times, CBS This Morning, CNN, NBC News, CBS News, The Today Show, Good Morning America, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Bump, New York Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Business Insider and many more!
