About the Engineering Team
The engineering team is a small and nimble group that takes a structured agile approach to build and update our telemedicine platform iteratively and efficiently. We meet daily for short standup meetings and once a week for extended planning meetings. We release updates once a week and work very closely with all departments of the company including clinical operations, customer success, marketing, as well as the executive team.
Although all of our engineers tend to code and test independently, we strive to collaborate as much as possible. This includes, but is not limited to, code reviews, planning sessions, pair programming, and tech debt backlog grooming. We develop software primarily in Python (Flask) on the back end and Typescript (React) on the front end.
