An Insider's view of Cricket Health

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

We are highly motivated people tackling one of the hardest problems in healthcare. When we are in the office, we dare mighty things. But we also treasure our lives outside the office.

Working in lean teams allows employees to step up and take on new responsibilities. I’ve learned about different parts of the business through a wide variety of projects. High exposure to senior management encourages career growth through formal and informal interactions.
