Curious about our challenges?

Much has been done, but it’s far from over. We are currently working to review our technological environment and our work processes to redefine ourselves and move to the next level and we’re aiming for world-class. Think about efficient, highly scalable, and responsive infrastructures, think interoperability, think multiple languages, think security - where to start! GDPR, PIPEDA, SOC2, and so on - we work in healthcare, that's a given.


What to expect when joining the team

Let’s talk stack

The Mobile application is built on React Native library for delivering solutions both for iOS and Android. The app uses modern tools, such as Hooks for managing the local state, Redux for global state and React-Navigation for navigation. Also, we use Jest and React-Native-Testing-Library for unit and component test and Typescript, ESlint and Prettier for static testing. The backend is fed by Ruby on Rails. It mainly consists of APIs built on top of Redis, ElasticSearch, Sidekiq, Docker and MySQL. This backend coordinates multiple different data streams and allows for complex healthcare ecosystems to be optimized and efficient. Our frontend apps utilize modern frameworks such as Angular, RxJS, Redux, and Storybook. Quality being at the center of our principles, all of this code is tested using frameworks such as Jest as well as end-to-end testing libraries and services. Finally, we strongly believe in a continuous delivery approach and have achieved a strong maturity in this regard, deploying code in production environments multiple times a day.
