In the fastest growing economies in the world, people are spending $100B a year on pay-as-you-go healthcare that delivers poor outcomes. Every year,150M families fall back into poverty due to catastrophic healthcare expenses. And now a tsunami of chronic disease is making things even worse. In a market like Kenya, where we are first focused, only 3% of the population has decent health insurance coverage.
The COVID pandemic has created a once-in-a-generation moment to reimagine healthcare. Antara’s virtual-first primary care with health navigation is the only model in an emerging market to have demonstrated world-class health outcomes with simultaneous cost reductions.
Scaling Antara’s model will make quality healthcare affordable for billions of people who need access and protection in healthcare. We use cutting edge automation and machine learning to help our clinical team serve more people, more effectively. We use the latest data science methods to optimize our members’ risks, costs and satisfaction.

We’re growing quickly and we need your help
We are looking for our first head of engineering who can recruit, nurture and super-charge a world-class engineering organization and culture, starting with our small-and-scrappy team of 6 (and growing) engineers.
As Head of Engineering, you will be responsible for software development, architecture, and infrastructure across the organization. This is an opportunity to do consequential work that directly improves the lives of those who need it the most.
Antara is building a time-zone aligned & remote-first product development team with centers of gravity in Nairobi and Lisbon. Presence in Nairobi and Lisbon highly valued (in 2022, we will sponsor permanent residence opportunities in Portugal for non-EU citizens).
