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?

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.


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.


Software Engineer 3

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.
