Senior Software Engineer

| Greater Boston Area
If you or a loved one has ever experienced a major medical event, you know how overwhelming it is to process the flood of information that follows—whether it’s hastily delivered guidance from your doctor, or a pile of paperwork on managing your recovery. And once you get home, it can feel impossible to know where to start, or how to stay on track to reach your health goals.
At Wellframe, we’re helping healthcare organizations fill this gap, so people can get the holistic resources and support they need to feel their best, outside traditional care delivery settings. Through our patented platform, Wellframe translates evidence-based, peer-reviewed guidelines and literature into an interactive daily checklist delivered to patients through the Wellframe mobile app. As patients engage with the Wellframe app, their data is shared in real time with their care team through the care team dashboard, which utilizes advanced algorithms to generate early intervention alerts. With secure two-way messaging, Wellframe facilitates long-term, trusted relationships between patients and care teams.

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.
