  • I joined PurposeMed as I wanted to be actively helping the 2SLGBTQ+ that I am a part of. What quickly became and remains my favourite thing about working for PurposeMed is the freedom to bring my whole self to work.

  • It's not often you hear of tech start-ups that are queer-centric, community-focused, and on a purpose-driven mission to eliminate the transmission of HIV. To find the type of work I love and feel good doing it? That's a dream job if I've ever heard of one.

Why join PurposeMed?

Make an impact, every single day.

Over 70% of the people we serve have never received care for their condition before. Were it not for us, they probably would not receive care.

Flexibility you desire.

We have built a fun and knowledgeable team with top talent from across the country. While we have an office in Calgary, we are very open to remote candidates and flexible working. Work should fit around your life.

Great people who don’t take themselves too seriously.

Our team is highly mission-driven. People join us for a reason, and they tend to stay. While we’re serious about the problems we solve, we believe in having fun along the way. There are no egos here!

Our values

We are patient first.

We believe everyone should receive high quality, accessible, and compassionate healthcare. Our starting point is to build a 10 out of 10 experience for the patient and to always go the extra mile, as if the patient were a friend, family member or colleague. Because all of us have been, are or will be patients.

We are inclusive.

Inclusivity is core to how we take care of our patients, our teammates and ourselves. We create spaces that are safe and affirming. Spaces where we can be our true selves and be vulnerable. Because it is here that we can truly support and empower one another.

We work with urgency.

There are big problems to fix in our healthcare system. It is complex, slow and invalidating. We work with urgency because high quality healthcare delivered faster leads to better outcomes. And there are millions more people who need our services.

We take ownership.

Achieving our mission is not an easy task, but we are up for the challenge. We see all the ways that healthcare can be improved and we leap on those opportunities as we see them arise, not because we're told to do them, but because each of us can have a major impact. We do right by our patients even when no one is watching, and we own our wins and failures, big or small.
