Watsi is a global crowdfunding platform that enables anyone to directly fund healthcare for people around the world.
We’re a team of engineers, designers, doctors, and marketers working at Watsi because we believe that everyone, everywhere deserves access to healthcare. We move fast, take risks, and come to work every day excited about building an organization that matters more than we do.
The Watsi platform is built on Ruby on Rails. On the crowdfunding side, we build tools to connect patients with donors across the world. On the medical operations side, we collect extensive data on patients, their diagnoses, and personal stories that allows us to quantify our impact.
