Job Description

Come change lives with us as Zest’s Physician Leader

Zest delivers transformational, high-quality care that makes the lives of those with chronic dermatology conditions dramatically better. Conditions like eczema and psoriasis can be life-altering for patients, and traditional care options are limited. At Zest, we’re building a product and team that changes this.

Much more than “telehealth,” we build products and provide services that treat these diseases as they should be, more than skin deep. We offer responsive, rapid, and comprehensive care to patients through access to dermatologist prescribers, wellness coaches, and disease education - all within one platform. This unique approach enables more timely care, markedly better clinical outcomes, and improvements in both patient and provider satisfaction.

We are seeking a Physician Leader to collaborate closely with our Physician CEO, driving and owning the delivery of care on the platform. You will be responsible for hiring and managing the clinical staff servicing the platform. You will contribute to defining and refining the clinical workflow that delivers efficient, high-quality medical dermatologic care, collaborating cross-functionally with Product and Leadership teams to improve the provider experience, and proposing strategic next steps for the business based on your deep knowledge of chronic dermatologic conditions.

We are looking for a leader who strives for excellence, is a strong strategic thinker, can manage a stellar team, and actively and creatively shares ideas. We endeavor to create an environment where there are no wrong answers, where people think differently, where there is never just one "right way" to solve a problem, and will lead with humility. We will value your ideas, recognize your efforts, foster your growth, reward your contributions, and celebrate success together.

You will:

  • Build and lead the clinician organization, creating a culture of high-quality, efficient, engaged, and compassionate care
  • Be a provider on the platform yourself, actively treating patients and generating your own insights on how Zest can improve the platform
  • Draft, iterate upon, and maintain clinical Standard Operating Procedures, holding provider staff to a high standard
  • Be the final decision maker on clinical matters, providing chart review resulting in clinical outcomes-maximizing decision-making
  • Coordinate with Product, Marketing, and Executive teams by curating, prioritizing, and delivering recommendations on platform improvements and strategic growth into new indications, patient segments, and therapeutic approaches
  • Represent the Zest brand within the dermatology community, serving as an ambassador to drive excitement about the product and provider experience
  • Grow your skills, have fun, work with great people, and help make the world be healthier and better!


  • Board certified dermatologist
  • Licensed to practice medicine with a willingness to obtain additional state medical licenses as needed. 
  • Entrepreneurial mindset with meaningful enthusiasm for the business model
  • Strong integrity and commitment to exercising independent medical judgment and quality of care
  • Experience managing other clinicians, acting in a leadership capacity

Nice to have:

  • Experience working with digital health or telemedicine products, particular in a capacity working cross-functionally to deliver product feedback
  • Thought leadership within dermatology with experience collecting, analyzing, and presenting clinical data at industry-leading conferences, meetings, forums, etc.
  • Day-one licensure and credentialing in multiple states is a plus, particularly in California or Georgia or other states within the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact

This is a remote position. The time required to hold this position is flexible and open to discussion, with our preference being a ramp to full-time. At Zest, we offer competitive salaries, medical/dental benefits, open PTO, 401k, paid holidays, parental leave, and equity compensation. 

At Zest, we are driven by the values of excellence and compassion, and that means we believe great ideas can come from anyone, regardless of their race, color, gender identity, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, physical abilities, age, sexual orientation, or veteran status. We embrace employees and candidates from these underrepresented groups to help make this vision a reality. The more diversity we have in our team, the more unique perspectives and great ideas we share.

If this position at Zest sounds like a fit for you, we’re looking forward to talking with you!
