About Stepful

Stepful is reimagining healthcare training making it 10x more accessible, effective and fun.

Anyone with a high school diploma can jumpstart their career in healthcare with, on average, only 5 weeks of training. Our graduates, mainly from underprivileged communities, go on to work at leading healthcare institutions (Quest Diagnostics, Davita, One Medical, etc…). On average, Stepful students increase their salaries by 60%.

The founding team is uniquely positioned to grow Stepful to be the leader in healthcare education. Each founder brings relevant experience from leadership roles at Udacity, Apple, Uber, and Triplebyte.

Stepful is backed by YC, Reach Capital (one of the largest edtech VCs), Dunce Capital and Harvard Management Company.

Engineering at Stepful

At Stepful, each product engineer is empowered to lead feature-development from end to end. From design, spec, and full-stack development, to data-driven iteration. We encourage engineers to share their best ideas & discuss over alternatives.

Our success metrics (graduation, certification, and placement rate) are directly driven by how well our technology helps our students to overcome their learning challenges. Each engineering project at Stepful is data driven and it’s strictly tied to a core success metric.
