Sapien makes it easier for people to mentally and physically prepare for surgery, and recover safely.

We remotely coach patients through their surgery by combining personalised digital guidance, smart connected devices, and access to an expert health coach for a human touch when the patient needs it.

The Sapien approach helps to deliver better clinical and financial outcomes, whilst providing a better experience for patients.

Engineering at Sapien Health

Engineering team and processes

1) We are a small team of product, design and engineering.

2) Highly collaborative from design > front-end > back-end.

3) Have a very lightweight process that answers two key questions (1) what’s the right thing to build? and (2) what’s the right way to build it?

4) Our primary focus right now is finding product-market fit but we operate in a space (healthcare) where we need to move quickly but with integrity.

5) We have a strong bias for infrastructure as code.

6) We understand that optimising the developer experience is a necessary prerequisite to building valuable products for our customers.

7) Our engineering culture and processes are still being defined and we are looking for someone to have an influence when they join.

Technical Challenges

1) Creating beautiful user experiences that instil trust with our users.

2) Designing and developing highly-secure, cloud-native solutions that handle patients’ medical data.

3) Codifying behavioural science techniques and combining them with data science to empower healthy behaviours by our users.

4)Making educated choices on which tools to build, borrow and buy.
