Making Healthcare Right. Together.” is the cornerstone of all we do. Our vision is through powerful relationships with Care Partners, we help all people live healthy and brighter lives. To successfully achieve our mission and vision as we operate in a dynamic health care environment, we expect Bright employees to embody and uphold our core values in work and interactions, both internal and external: be brave, be brilliant, be accountable, be inclusive, and be collaborative.

Our Sr. Software Engineers are responsible for building the API and data models powering our virtual care platform. They work closely with members of the Architecture, Product, Quality, and Integration teams during various phases of the development cycle. They also help the engineering team communicate about app functionality during team demos and as needed for the implementation and support teams. All of our software development teams work using the Scrum process with a two-week sprint cycle.

The DocSquad Virtual Visits engineering team is currently working on a few large scope projects including an Internationalization framework (starting with Spanish translation of all content), functionality to allow supervising clinicians to review visits by advanced practice registered nurses (e.g. nurse practitioner or PA), and the ability for patients to schedule their own virtual visits (including integration with external scheduling systems). We’re also looking at enhancing our video capabilities to be as good or better than other virtual care products in the market.
