Salvo is a new approach to help millions of Americans facing chronic health conditions, centered on chronic gut health and metabolic conditions from IBS to obesity. Our patients are assigned a “whole patient” care team and have seven day a week access to app-based care, using Remote Patient Monitoring (“RPM”) to bill under the patient’s insurance. This is a major step forward to go beyond episodic appointments to continuous care at home, and deliver interdisciplinary wraparound care in partnership with the patient’s existing local doctor.
Salvo is backed by leading health care investors from innovators like Livongo, Ro, Ginger, Forward, Brightline, Tia, and others. Salvo care draws on expertise from Board-certified specialty physicians, registered dietitians, nurses, psychologists, and therapists who have developed our evidence-based protocols, for a personalized, multi-month journey to better health.
Salvo is the first to bring a scalable and tech-enabled, more integrative approach to these chronic conditions, going beyond treating only the symptoms in order to identify and address the root causes of chronic illness.

Salvo believes that the most inclusive and equitable culture makes for a better business, so we welcome diverse candidates for this role. We are committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal employment opportunities are available to all applicants and teammates. A core mission is to increase access to better and more convenient care for patients, especially among Millennial and GenZ women whose complaints are often not taken seriously by the existing medical system. Many of our patients struggle to get access to the right doctor given the shortage of specialists, and often their doctors are not trained in the relevant areas of behavioral medicine, nor have the financial incentives to give daily support for follow-up care.
Salvo aims to offer a comprehensive benefits package to support our employees. Aside from a competitive salary and a remote-first environment, we offer medical/dental/vision insurance, membership to One Medical, a 401k program, generous PTO, and more!
