Nice to meet you, we’re Vesta Healthcare.

 

Vesta Healthcare is a Series B startup with a simple mission: Delivering extraordinary outcomes by unlocking the power of caregivers.  We enable people with personal assistance to thrive at home, in their community by assuring their caregivers have the resources, data, and support they need.  We achieve this through a combination of analytics, technology, services, and deep healthcare expertise.

Our program monitors in real-time, identifying issues before they become health events, and helping connect those in need with those who can help via technologies such as video, chat, and telephone. Our technology platform includes home-based mobile applications, a clinical dashboard, and data analytics on data not previously available to health professionals. We are disrupting a $109 billion industry and have recently closed our latest funding round with a blue-chip list of investors.

We’re looking to add to our team of experts who care deeply about our mission.  

Our team is passionate, driven, collaborative, intellectually curious, and excited about the opportunity to transform our  healthcare system. We're inspired by caregivers and seek to create a platform that recognizes, utilizes and supports the vital role they play.  We strive to  continuously learn, explore, experiment and achieve results. We are here to improve the quality of life for caregivers and care recipients, allowing them to focus on the important things (like going to the mall with their grandkids).

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
