This snarled state of affairs was the backdrop against which Anant Gupta, a Bay Area-based engineering manager, was considering his next career move. He was coming off of a nearly five-year run with Uber's "new mobility" team — focusing on bikes and scooters. It had been his most fulfilling job to-date. "Meaning in work hasn't always been an option — my first few jobs were all about how I was gonna pay my student loans." But after Uber, he started to realize he had options. "I realized I could work on anything, so I started thinking about the legacy I want to create."
He was methodical, meeting with mentors and structuring the world into existential challenges. One mentor helped him in his thinking about healthcare — "healthcare affects every one of us at multiple stages of our lives." So he joined that mentor at Grand Rounds, a service that helps patients navigate the healthcare system from end-to-end. He's now hiring for his team, and the rest of Grand Rounds is too.
