Employee Testimonials

Office Manager

Q: How does PatientPing recognize an individual's successes?

A: At PatientPing, we encourage public praise through channels like Slack and Lattice. We also set aside time for shout-outs at our weekly all-hands meeting. At our quarterly company meetings, each department recognizes one or two employees as "Star Pingers” -- we call out the company values they embody and present them with customized pins.

Senior People Operations Lead

Q: How have you experienced career growth?

A: I started working at PatientPing as an Office Manager/EA. Being the 6th hire at a startup means that your role knows no bounds, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to explore all aspects of our business from customer support to accounting. I currently support a team of over 100 employees as a Sr. People Operations Lead.


Q: How do you go about fostering creativity amongst your team?

A: Giving them freedom to fail. Creativity inherently means trying something new, which implies risk. We want people to feel free to take risks without feeling the fear of failure! That, and very powerful cold-brew coffee.

VP of Growth

Q: What does success look like on your team?

A: The people that have been successful have these attributes. 1. Grit–they never give up. 2. Adaptability–startups change at a hyper-fast pace, people that embrace change really thrive. 3. Curiosity–they’re constantly learning and improving their skills. 4. Humility–they look at how they can improve themselves and regularly talk about their mistakes.

Lead Software Engineer

What is a day in the life of an engineer at PatientPing?

Every day can be different. You can be heads down implementing a feature, solving problems with the CI infrastructure, hashing out technical designs with fellow engineers, collaborating with product managers and UX designers on solutions for our customers, or sitting in on user research calls to learn first hand about pain points that different people in the healthcare industry face. This, sprinkled with a couple of ping pong matches if you are so inclined, makes life fun and challenging in all the best ways at PatientPing.
