Founded in 2013, Tidepool is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to make diabetes data more accessible, actionable, and meaningful. Tidepool creates software that connects people to the health data they want and empowers them to make better health decisions.
Tidepool’s latest effort is a project to build and support an FDA-regulated version of Loop, originally a do-it-yourself mobile app for automated insulin dosing. Tidepool Loop is being designed to connect to commercially available insulin pumps and CGMs (continuous glucose monitors) using Bluetooth wireless communication. The intention is for the app to be accessed via prescription and available for download in the iOS App Store.
An interactive web application for visualizing diabetes device data from multiple devices all in one place.
A universal uploader app that allows users to retrieve data from over 85 supported devices, including every brand of insulin pump and CGM available in the United States, and a variety of blood glucose meters.
A notes app — and companion to the Tidepool Data Platform — for iOS and Android that allows users to add context to their diabetes data.
This dynamic team is fully distributed and all-remote. Tidepool boasts 56 employees, contractors, and interns spanning 14 states and 8 countries. Tidepool employees can be found in the United States, Canada, Australia, Bulgaria, Croatia, New Zealand, and Wales.
