An Insider's view of PatientPop

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There's a lot of chemistry. All of us are, honestly, really good friends. I know that sounds cheesy and everybody probably says that, but we do a lot of fun stuff together outside of work. Those relationships make communication and collaboration that much stronger during work.

Kirsten

Manager of Customer Success

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are currently working on ways to streamline our internal workflows. I love creating and improving our automation tools so that our implementation managers can focus more on their providers and less on the backend.

David

Web Administrator

How does the company support your career growth?

PatientPop allows the flexibility for us (graphic designers) to push our platform's limits and learn how to create within boundaries, which is vital to the success of any artist.

Patric

Sr. Website Designer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At PatientPop, we’re big believers in transparency. It’s important to Travis and myself that we arm our employees with all of the information they need to make decisions. We empower them to make those decisions autonomously.

Luke

Co-Founder and Co-CEO

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

On the engineering team, everyone from interns all the way to a Sr. Engineers are given a lot of autonomy and responsibility. So you’ll notice as early as your first day, you're already working on the product and with the team to get something delivered. That's really unique.

Director of Engineering
