Manager, Software Engineering

| Greater Boston Area
At Wellframe, we reimagine healthcare relationships through a new approach that uses high-tech to deliver the high-touch support people need, when and where they need it. We call it Digital Health Management. Our comprehensive suite of Digital Health Management solutions for care management, advocacy, and navigation help organizations forge more meaningful connections with members, across their healthcare journey. 
Wellframe was founded to counter a pressing industry problem: the healthcare system has struggled to find ways to support people in between care settings, at scale. We believe health plans are in the best position to advocate for their members as they navigate their health and care, but know that technology alone can’t help us achieve this ambition. That’s why our team of physicians, clinicians, public health experts, data scientists, engineers, and healthcare industry experts ensure our patented technology works in service of the person-to-person connections that make healthcare work best.

An Insider's view of Wellframe

What are some social events your company does?

Wellframe’s social events go beyond the regular happy hours (which we also do). Earlier this week, my team went bowling; with the Women of Wellframe group, we watched Ocean’s 8 together and have a potluck picnic coming up; and later this summer, we’ll all indulge in a beach day. It’s all made me feel a part of the company even as a new member.
