About us:


Zealthy is a telemedicine company on a mission to provide critical healthcare services to all who need them. We are building the world's largest and highest quality telemedicine company and fundamentally expanding access to high-quality care.


While the Founder was most recently Founder and CEO at a unicorn healthcare company, the full-time team is currently only 13 people. The company is focused on sustainable growth, and the company is growing quickly to achieve its mission.


We work hard at Zealthy to ensure that patients can access high-quality healthcare from anywhere. This means working Monday-Friday in the office. Hours tend to be longer than at most companies because we work hard to serve our patients and make sure that we can achieve our mission of building the world's largest and highest quality telemedicine company.


The culture is focused on what we can do to serve our patients and all full-time members of the team will be equity holders in the business, as we firmly believe that all team members should be literal and figurative owners in what we are building. Additionally, all team members will have the opportunity to grow as the organization scales, including growing quickly into leadership roles regardless of tenure so long as performance is strong.


The Role:


We are currently seeking a full-time Associate General Counsel. Please note that this position will start out in person in our Miami Beach office, and then transfer to our NYC office once it opens in Summer 2024.


What You'll Do:


  • Serve as a thought partner to the CEO: As we build the world’s largest and highest quality telemedicine company, you will be the CEO’s trusted advisor to ensure that we are making the most intelligent decisions bearing in mind risks associated with those decisions.
  • Complete transactions: Lead all legal work associated with corporate transactions, including VC financings and potential acquisitions of other companies.
  • Regulatory Compliance: In partnership with an external compliance consultant (as necessary), monitor, interpret, and ensure compliance with federal, state, and international healthcare regulations, including but not limited to, HIPAA, HITECH Act, and other relevant laws.
  • Regulatory Awareness: Stay current with federal, state, and local healthcare laws and regulations relevant to telehealth services, and ensure that the company's practices adhere to these requirements.
  • Policy and Procedure Oversight: Establish, review, and update policies and procedures to align with compliance standards and best practices.
  • Risk Assessment: Identify potential compliance risks and develop strategies to mitigate them effectively.
  • Auditing and Monitoring: Implement regular compliance audits and monitoring activities to assess adherence to policies and procedures, identifying and addressing areas of non-compliance.
  • Incident Reporting: Establish a confidential system for employees and stakeholders to report compliance concerns, investigate reported issues, and take appropriate corrective actions.
  • Data Privacy and Security: Ensure compliance with data privacy laws, such as HIPAA, and oversee data security measures to protect patient information.
  • Third-Party Vendor Oversight: Monitor compliance of third-party vendors and contractors to ensure they meet the company's standards.
  • Reporting: Prepare and submit compliance reports to management and regulatory authorities as required.
  • Collaboration: Collaborate with Product owners, including Founder and Senior Medical Director, to ensure we can effectively promote access to high-quality care while maintaining full compliance across all of our states.
  • Contract Management: Draft, review, and negotiate a variety of contracts, including service agreements, vendor contracts, and partnership agreements.


What You'll Bring:


The ideal candidate will have experience in healthcare law at a firm, in-house at another healthcare startup, and/or experience as an AUSA. We believe that the most successful candidates are likely currently 4-10 years out of law school with extremely high motivation and a desire to work directly with a CEO who has scaled another healthcare company from an idea to a multi-billion dollar company.
