Amino is a mission-driven healthcare startup working to help Americans find experienced,
cost-effective, in-network care. When I joined in early 2016, our product was a free website offering unique
experience data on almost every doctor in America by virtue of one of the largest (if not the largest) collection
of private, anonymized health insurance claims. Using these "receipts" we could string together a patient story,
sometimes called an "episode of care," and wrap insurance network and plan specific prices around a given procedure.
Eight months after joining the team, I was invited to participate in the Meraki tribe of Remote Year, traveling the world with a group of digital nomads for a full year. Amino worked with me to transition my role away from product design and add flexibility to my hours so that I could more easily work away from San Francisco. I will forever be grateful to the team and especially the cofounder and design lead, Sumul Shah, for valuing employee growth and making the year possible. I stayed with Amino through the end of my travels, and left the team as they pivoted toward an HSA offering.
