👋 About Walnut
Our Mission
We believe that nobody should struggle financially to receive healthcare. Every year, 500,000 families in the United States declare bankruptcy due to large medical bills. People should not have their lives destroyed because they can’t afford something they require to survive. At Walnut, we’re on a mission to increase access to healthcare by making it more affordable.  
What we do
Walnut is a fintech company that expands financial access to healthcare. We’re building a point-of-sale embedded lending platform that makes healthcare more affordable for patients by breaking up large medical bills into small, monthly payments. The best part? No fees ever. This helps patients actually afford healthcare and helps healthcare providers capture more revenue and increase collections. We’ve raised over $110 million from prominent investors including Gradient Ventures (Google’s AI-focused venture fund), Plaid, Afore Capital, 2048 Ventures, Newark Venture Partners, Supernode Ventures, CityRock Venture Partners, and others.

- Lay a solid foundation for the product to scale, keep our technical debt in check and help us hire a team of incredible engineers.
- Have something you want to learn or accomplish in this role? Tell  us about it! We want to give you the best career opportunity you've ever  had.
