An Insider's view of Bright Health

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office has a relaxed and laid back vibe but people are very serious about their work - perfect!

Anthony

Data Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

My day is so varied, given how quickly we're growing, which is fulfilling for me. I have a good balance of strategic and tactical work in my day as well as time to focus and time to collaborate.

Jen

VP, Digital

What makes someone successful on your team?

A hard-working team player who thinks first and codes next is likely to learn a lot and quickly become a valuable member of the team. Lots of experience with some of our tooling is always nice, but if someone can't knowledge-share well or responds poorly to code reviews and other requests for collaboration, it'll be a tough fit.
