Engineering @ Ready Surgery

Join a Mission-Driven Team. Build a Mission-Critical Product.

You’ve heard it. Our healthcare sucks. We spend the most and yet have some of the worst outcomes. Healthcare touches all our lives at one time or another, and yet it is bankrupting us. Are you willing to be part of the solution? Not just on the periphery of healthcare; but deep in the heart of healthcare. With hard medical science and real patient data; with empathy and courage. Ready Surgery is tackling one of Healthcare’s biggest problems - surgical complications. Over half of surgical complications are avoidable. Today, more lives are lost due to errors of ineptitude than errors of ignorance in medicine. What if your code can wield the power to stop this?

What we do

We are tackling one of Healthcare’s biggest problems - surgical complications. Over half of surgical complications are avoidable. We build software that help surgeons and nurses make better decisions and get patients through surgery safely.


Ready Surgery delivers AI-enhanced recommendations to avoid surgical complications. Founded by a surgeon and technologist team, we are bringing the best of Silicon Valley to serve our healthcare system. The surgical workflow entails a series of decisions from when and where to have the surgery to personalized precautions after surgery. Even a small approximation or error in one decision compounds into a bad outcome for the patient. Our workflow system starts from when a surgeon plans surgery and stretches all the way to the patient's recovery making sure every step is optimized, ultimately to make each surgery safer.

Today, Ready Surgery keeps people alive and well after surgery. It helps determine if surgery is worthwhile. But we are going for a moonshot. Our vision is to bring such rigorous risk management to all medical interventions, from chemotherapy to stem-cell injections, with the ultimate goal of ensuring thoughtful use of medical advancements.

How we do it

  • Purposeful. What you build matters. Save millions from unnecessary suffering. Unleash scientific evidence into clinical practices around the world. Surgeons and patients will rely on your work to make better decisions.

  • Productive. Choose your work style for delivering at high velocity. Get creative. With a lean team and process, focus and do deep work. Measure your overhead and be ruthless until you get to radical productivity. Experience Flow.

  • Pliable. You intuitively get agile and iterations and pivots. But change doesn’t happen to you. You are the change. Learning is more important to you than being right. 

  • Personal. We care about how your job makes you feel. We care about you feeling fulfilled, energized and happy. That’s why our team strives to practice the 15 commitments of conscious leadership every single day.

  • Persevere. Share the good times and the bad times. Collaborate without blame, guilt or shame when you lose. Be curious on why and learn deliberately. Be open and honest about your weaknesses. Conquer your fears with genuine support.

  • Priorities. Care less about the elevator pitch, office perks, newest frameworks, vanity metrics or the next big round. Care more about delivering reliable software fast to ensure the next big medical breakthrough reaches every patient.
