Startup out of Austin, Texas, Enzyme Health, has recently secured $1.7 million in a seed funding round to expand on goals of offering healthcare providers the ability to work with flexibility in terms of location and hours.
Silverton Partners, an early-stage VC firm also headquartered in Austin, led the funding. Private investors also participated.
Founded this year, Enzyme offers a telehealth job marketplace for clinicians. The company said 90 percent of its available positions allow providers to work remotely.
Through its platform, machine learning matches physicians and nurse practitioners with jobs suited to their know-how and availability. The company’s website lists open family medicine, emergency medicine and nurse practitioner jobs. Clinicians can choose from full-time, part-time and work-from-home telehealth positions.
Employers can use the Austin startup’s services to help find clinical talent. Currently, companies like Doctor on Demand and MDLive utilize Enzyme to fill telehealth roles.
“Traditional healthcare jobs require spending 50-80 hours per week in a hospital, which often means clinicians give up work-life balance and doing the things they enjoy,” Enzyme co-founder and CEO Michelle Davey said in a statement. “We started Enzyme Health after speaking with hundreds of doctors who wanted more career flexibility, but couldn’t find the time, resources or job opportunities to make that a reality.”
