    curai

    Senior Software Engineer

    Curai is a health tech company operating a virtual primary care clinic. As one of the earliest teammates, I wore many hats - from leading company wide DEI initiatives, running giving & receiving feedback trainings, defining recruitment strategies and interview processes, and managing external vendor partnerships. As a senior product engineer, I shepherded projects & processes from ideation to design to implementation and beyond. Project highlights included: creating our first engineering dashboards, writing our first Stripe integration and building out our payments service, managing an application rewrite from Backbone to React, architecting state machine based, flexible onboarding flows, and building the core engineering infrastructure to expand operations nationwide. Stack: Python, Flask, React Native, Postgres, GCP, FHIR
