Engineering at CrossComm

Engineering team and processes

Our engineers benefit from both collegial collaboration and guidance from technical and organizational leadership. We use a technology team structure, employing a mix of junior, mid, and senior developers reporting to a lead in each technical area (i.e., backend, frontend, mobile, and AR/VR). All team leads report to the director of software engineering who reports to the CEO.

CrossComm employs an agile development and deployment process to get quick feedback from clients. Engineers work alongside our project managers to create user stories, map out desired functions, and define necessary tasks. We deploy to multiple environments on multiple projects every week.

Technical Challenges

Because we embrace a variety of technologies, and serve a wide range of industries, consistent learning is required from project to project. Depending on your role, you may be challenged to: create VR applications that are technically impressive and immersive, deploy backend applications to a variety of cloud platforms from custom provisioned VMs to serverless APIs, or build mobile applications that integrate with evolving hardware 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.

  • The Hololens Augmented Reality Application for Wayne State University's Medical Department allows therapists to provide AR exposure therapy to patients suffering from phobias, PTSD, or OCD. Patients wearing a Microsoft HoloLens AR headset are shown simulations of feared objects (such as spiders or snakes) in their real-world environments. The purpose is to gradually lessen the patients' fears of the object. Through a companion web application, therapists can control the size, type, color, and movement of the feared objects—even from another room or remote location.
