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!


Data Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

Our team works within an Agile framework with 2 week sprints. Tasks in my sprint that I tackle daily range from ideation, research, designing wires and mocks in Sketch, UI kit updates, prepping for an engineering handoff, etc.


Digital Product Designer

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.


Full Stack Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Modeling after my manager, I like to provide both regularly scheduled one-on-one meetings, where developers and engineers get to set the agenda. We can talk about career development, design and architecture ideas, industry trends, or traditional HR topics like goal setting. It’s up to them. I also have begun setting regular “office hours.”


VP & Data Platform Architect

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We hire smart individuals who thrive on accomplishment and purpose. Our teams are exposed to the bigger picture through constant communication and dialogues – that encourages them to come up with innovative solutions to problems. We've made significant adjustments on our direction in technology and process that were initiated by the team.
