An Insider's view of Ribbon Health

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We make sure to prioritize everyone's wellbeing at Ribbon. We recognize that every person has different work styles and preferences so we seek to support each other in those preferences. Some practical ways we do this is through “No Meeting Thursdays,” documenting and sharing our working norms, and sharing frequent feedback.

Wyatt

Product Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We are transparent with each teams’ goals and how they roll up to support the company. This allows for a lot of visibility into what each person is working on, and that context is really helpful when engaging in cross-functional projects. We make it a habit to create and share artifacts so we can be sure we are all on the same page on direction.

Stephanie

Head of Marketing

How does the company support your career growth?

I’m grateful for our constant learning opportunities - from cross-team discussions on how our product can improve the healthcare industry, to the greenfield opportunities to build something new. We prioritize putting our team first, which leads to a culture of learning and feedback, creativity, and empathy for each other and the market.

Misha

Business Development Lead

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

We built a process to encourage new ideas and ensure they get attention. First, anyone with an idea creates an artifact for the team to absorb, and then we have a meeting to discuss and make a decision. In the end, when we come to a decision together, we commit to the chosen path to build the best possible product as a united group.

Nate

Co-Founder and CTO

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

We are designing scalable data ecosystems that enable analytics and data science workflows. Our biggest challenges come from automating the maintenance and operation of hundreds of pipelines, determining a reproducible ground truth, and providing our customers with the means to answer key questions.
