    We're a technology and product company, looking to fundamentally change the way that people access healthcare around the globe.

    Being ill is difficult enough, getting healthcare shouldn’t be. For many of us getting access to healthcare can be inconvenient or costly. But for some, the problem is more serious: almost 50% of the global population has little access to quality healthcare.

    Yet irrespective of where we live, most of us have a mobile phone in our pocket. Our mobiles are getting smarter every year: mobile phones today are a thousand times more capable than they were only 10 years ago and they will be at least a thousand times more powerful in the next ten years. Can you imagine the possibilities?

    We're on a mission to put affordable, accessible healthcare into the hands of everyone, globally; our platform allows you to speak to a doctor within an hour, and we're automating many parts of the patient journey with a powerful series of AIs that can triage and diagnose patients, as well as predict future ailments.

    We recently secured our Series B funding ($60m), and been profiled quite heavily in recent times by CNN, WSJ, the BBC (we were featured on BBC2's Horizon in June 2017) as one of the most exciting AI companies to watch, globally. We're launching in 25 countries over the next year.

    We interview using a simple 4 stage process:-

    1. Phone Screen with an internal recruiter - informal discussion for us to share more with you and for you to tell us how you think you can contribute to the babylon team

    2. Technical Challenge - out is designed to engage in conversation with your potential fellow team members. We've found this approach to be a great way to share ideas and learn (both parties) new styles, whilst giving insight your abilities.

    3. In person meeting - we encourage you to come to our offices and meet the rest of the team.... including our hanging garden, resident birds.

    Finally, culture - for us, this is a mission and attitude is everything. We set the goals high and set out to beat them. Everyone contributes and has a relentless drive to always improve and beat expectations.
