About us 

Working at Boulder

Founded in 2017, Boulder Care is a digital clinic offering long-term support and treatment for substance use disorders. Collaborating across medical, behavioral, and psychosocial dimensions, Boulder’s dedicated Care Teams deliver evidence-based care and help participants work toward their individual goals.  

Boulder's model is grounded in value. Through innovative partnerships with leading national health plans like Blue Cross Blue Shield, Boulder’s progressive payment arrangements realign incentives to reward outcomes and reduce total cost of care. We can unlock billions of dollars for the US health system by ensuring patients who are gravely underserved today have the opportunity to get well.

Backed by world-class investors like First Round, Greycroft, Acumen, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with more than $20M in funding, Boulder is in an exciting stage of rapid growth.

Our mission

  • Based in science: Boulder care teams provide comprehensive, evidence-based treatment that is tailored to each individual’s unique needs and goals. Boulder teams also help manage a host of co-occurring conditions, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Hepatitis C, women's health, and more.

  • Grounded in empathy: We provide unconditional support rooted in harm reduction and trauma-informed care. Patients, peer recovery specialists, and caregivers make important decisions together. Boulder Care focuses on long-term health, happiness, and wellness by addressing non-clinical goals like safe housing, employment, parenting, and financial security just as much as clinical outcomes. This model has resulted in a Net Promoter Score of 91 and 12-month-retention rates that are two times higher than the average outpatient program.

  • Breaking down barriers: Boulder's proprietary technology suite makes care accessible, comfortable, and convenient through secure video, phone, and messaging. We're reaching rural communities of the country, where more than 80% of people have little to no access to buprenorphine (Suboxone) prescribers. Boulder provides low-threshold care that is inclusive, empowering, and heavily influenced by participants' stated preferences and goals. Wherever our patients wish to go, we're grateful to go there together.

 Our values

  • The people we care for always come first
  • Our opportunity is also our duty, in service to others
  • Share facts to change minds, instill empathy to change hearts
  • Move the industry forward: follow the data
  • Strong individuals, stronger together

About the role

  • The Nurse Practitioner works directly with patients to deliver medication-assisted recovery for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and empowers patients in their recovery journeys in coordination with the Care Team (primarily Care Advocates and Peer Recovery Specialists).

  • This is a high-impact, patient-facing role, which involves delivering compassionate and empathetic telephonic, text-based, and video-based (telehealth) patient engagement and monitoring, assisted by Boulder clinical decision support tools and platforms.

  • As Boulder’s model is built on telemedicine, this role is unique in the autonomy and convenience that it offers compared to other Nurse Practitioner positions. You will have the opportunity to work from your own home and maintain flexible hours.

  • Make a difference. The devastating impact of the opioid crisis, “war on drugs,” and care gaps for the underserved are at the forefront now more than any time in US history. By bringing care to more people, we are changing and saving lives. Value-based partnerships help move the industry forward toward a more modern, compassionate, and equitable healthcare system.

  • Build your career with talented peers. Boulder brings together a diverse team of expert clinicians, technologists, researchers, and business strategists aligned under a common mission. Boulder’s clinical teams are the leading voices in addiction medicine and industry transformation. Our technology leadership has built products and services that scaled to hundreds of employees and hundreds of millions of end-users. Our team is wholly driven by mission, recognizing that our immense opportunity is also our duty to serve others.

  • Grow with us. Boulder is a Series-A-stage, venture-funded company supported by some of the best investors in the country. Together, we're building a massive business through social impact. According to White House estimates, the opioid crisis cost the US $500 billion in 2015. A member with untreated opioid use disorder (OUD) drives 550% greater healthcare costs to payers than the average member (UHC analysis, 2019). Boulder partners with leading commercial and Medicaid health plans to bring better experiences and effective services to their members, significantly reducing costs and sharing in the economic savings we create.

 Success in this role

  • Deliver proactive, clear, and constructive feedback and collaborate with Boulder’s Technology and Operations teams to troubleshoot as we continuously build out our digital treatment platforms.

  • Interpret and share lab results with patients, without judgement, in order to help them meet their goals and stay safe.

  • Enable care coordination, connecting patients to clinical resources outside Boulder through referrals where necessary, working with Peer Recovery Specialists and Care Advocates to help patients access social resources and navigate the healthcare system.
