An Insider's view of CirrusMD Inc.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There is so much trust and positivity and collective desire to make healthcare a better thing for so many people to experience, that I walk in the door every morning and feel inspired and feel a lot of gratitude for the people with whom I get to work.

Elizabeth Moore

Director of Marketing

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

I joined CirrusMD primarily because I was interested in working on a set of technologies, a platform, that could have impact on everyday people in healthcare.

It’s very rare to get to work on a product where you can see that it helps people in their day-to-day lives.

Gabe Varela

Chief Technology Officer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I like working at CirrusMD because I have an opportunity to make a lasting impact in healthcare.

By partnering with payers in the health system, we can really create the technology that acts as a catalyst to help them take additional risk and really achieve the goals of their value-based models.

Robyn Dietz

VP Account Management

What is your vision for the company?

I started CirrusMD because I was texting a ton with my friends and family and I realized I was actually providing a
really incredible service, they weren’t getting from the medical industry.

I said to myself, “It isn’t fair that only doctors’ own friends and family have this level of amazing service."

Blake McKinney, MD

Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

As a Mobile Engineer, I work here because we have a cohesive team of engineers that are all dedicated to building awesome software.
