Totemic is working to empower older adults everywhere to live their best lives independently.

By combining state-of-the-art technology with empathy and true human connection, Totemic wants to help keep people safe, independent, and connected in their own homes.

Totemic's team is comprised of individuals at the top of their fields, at the intersection of deep technology and healthcare delivery. We're all inspired to help our aging loved ones and the over 50 million older adults in the United States age on their own terms–and thrive in motion. We're giving peace of mind to the 40 million+ caregivers that their older adult loved ones have a support system whenever they need it.

If you are the type of person that likes to solve hard problems with meaningful impact, we'd love to hear from you.

Our Values

humanity before data

We deeply value data in our decision making, but always remember the humans behind the data are what matter most. If we wouldn’t do something to our own loved ones, we would never do it to the families for whom we care for.

Show humility

We go out of our way to empower everyone else to do their best work. Knowing the answer to a problem is nowhere near as important as the willingness to discover it.

maximize impact

The problems we are solving mean something to each and every one of us. We measure our accomplishments based on the impact they have towards moving our mission forward. 

over-communicate to grow

The harder something is to communicate, the more it should be openly discussed. We trust each other to give us the feedback and direct constructive criticism we need, early and often, in order to grow ourselves as individuals, teams, and as leaders.

take ownership

Our magic happens when we are empowered to make critical decisions and when we are proud of the work we are putting forth. We give each other the space that’s needed to achieve our goals, and set a high bar for our collective work.
