About Synapticure

The era of personalized care is finally coming to ALS. Synapticure gives all ALS patients access to the best care while fueling the advancement of personalized treatments for every type of ALS.

About the role

We are a digital health company focused on bettering care and accelerating cures for patients with ALS. We’re hiring an experienced product manager to help us scale and expand our telehealth services and data infrastructure.

ALS is a 100% terminal illness affecting roughly 6,000 new people per year in the U.S. alone. The care system for this highly complex disease is broken. Every ALS patient needs specialized care, though many never gain access to a specialist. Novel therapies are even harder to come by. Although there are many active clinical trials, by the time most patients get diagnosed and are deemed eligible for trials, they have progressed too far to qualify and are deprived of potential therapies.

Synapticure is on a mission to change that. We’re reinventing the end-to-end experience for patients with ALS and, eventually, for those with other neurodegenerative diseases. We believe that progressive care with comprehensive testing not only improves lives; it unlocks data and insights that will significantly accelerate drug discovery and development, and–ultimately–transform ALS into a disease that can be managed, with individualized, targeted treatment programs.

We’d love for you to join us.
