Engineering at CrossComm

Engineering team and processes

We use a technology team structure, employing a mix of junior, mid, and senior developers reporting to a lead in each technical area. Examples of our technical focus areas include backend, frontend, mobile, and AR/VR. All team leads report to the director of engineering who reports to the CEO.

CrossComm employs an agile development and deployment process to get feedback from our clients as soon as possible. We work together with our project managers to create user stories and define the tasks required to create the desired functionality. We deploy to multiple environments on multiple projects every week.

Technical Challenges

Due to a variety of clients and technology requirements, it is a challenge to create universal processes and tooling. We work in a wide range of environments that each provides its own technical challenges. Our work in VR needs to be technically impressive, immersive, all while running on budget hardware. Our backend team regularly deploys to a variety of cloud platforms from custom provisioned VMs to serverless APIs. Our mobile team has experienced some unique challenges building applications that integrate with evolving prototype medical devices.

Projects you might work on
  • MyPatientPal is a mobile app to help cancer patients better cope with and improve side effects related to treatment, while also equipping them to more effectively share their symptoms with healthcare providers. CrossComm developed an iOS and Android app that allowed patients to input their medication and symptoms on a daily basis. The app features informative charts that provide visual representations of the patient's symptoms over time, and the relationship between those symptoms and the patient's adherence to medication.

  • The FocuSStem NextGen initiative introduces underrepresented students in Southeastern Michigan to STEM careers through virtual reality experiences. CrossComm developed three distinct virtual medical modules (ICU, Operating Room, Research Lab), with an ability for over 15 individuals to share the same virtual space at the same time. Interactive virtual objects were created to help demonstrate real-world medical scenarios. Another feature was real-time administrative control over the VR environment, and timed challenges for students within each VR scenario.

  • Medfusion's vision was to create an app that would allow patients and caregivers to aggregate healthcare data from multiple providers onto a mobile app within seconds. The team at Medfusion was actively developing the iPhone app and selected CrossComm to develop the complimentary Apple Watch app. The watch extension app leverages notifications and glances to alert users when medical appointments are coming up, as well as when new results are ready to view. CrossComm also integrated the Medfusion Plus app with HealthKit to read and write vitals information.
