About Boulder Care


Boulder Care is a digital health platform for treating opioid addiction.

Opioid overdose is the leading cause of death for Americans under 50, but fewer than 10% of people who need treatment are receiving it. Boulder is closing this gap by providing high-quality medication-based treatment via a digital platform. Patients get the support they deserve from our world-class clinical staff from the comfort and convenience of home.  


Why work at Boulder?


  • Make a difference. Medication-assisted treatment works, but in the midst of a national crisis, the majority of US communities have no access to it. By providing more people with quality care, we can save and transform lives.
  • Work with the best. Boulder brings together the best clinicians, technologists, researchers, and business strategists, with the common goal of expanding access to life-saving treatment. Boulder’s clinical teams are the leading voices in addiction medicine. Our technology leadership has built products and services that scaled to hundreds of employees and hundreds of millions of end-users.
  • Grow with us. Boulder is a Series A stage, venture-funded company with investors like First Round and Greycroft Partners, and the opportunity to build a massive business. Our healthcare systems spend billions combating the opioid epidemic. By offering better care, we save lives and save payors money, creating immense financial value.


Nurse Practitioner at Boulder Care


As a Nurse Practitioner, you will work directly with patients to deliver medication-assisted recovery for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and empower patients in their recovery journeys in coordination with Care Advocates and Peer Coaches. In this high-impact, patient-facing role, you will deliver compassionate and empathetic telephonic, text-based, and video-based (telehealth) patient engagement and monitoring, assisted by Boulder clinical decision support tools and platforms. You will also coordinate with the rest of your multidisciplinary Care Team via Boulder telehealth tools to guide treatment planning and delivery.
