We will start off by reviewing your resume and then schedule a call if we think you may be a good fit. Since we’re small, you’ll have conversations with the whole team (all staff level developers and PMs) where you will have casual & technical conversations and potentially an RPI*. We'd be looking to understand how you think about problems and design solutions, perhaps most importantly in the context of pairing with another human. If we both want to proceed we would perform a background check. We’ll be in close contact as the process unfolds.
Because we are a young company (4 total FTE) we are not nearly as inclusive as we would like to be. We know that we cannot truly serve the best interests of our clients (public health departments and digital health startups) which is one of many reasons we're specifically putting our job in front of underrepresented folks. We know that teams with diverse backgrounds yield the best results, so by proxy that will translate to better health outcomes for the public.
