Startups are hard, and it takes a certain type of individual to want to work in one. The Candescent Health team is made up of people who have an overriding belief and passion for what the organization does. They're driven to overcome challenges and have the willingness to take risks. They do things quickly, learn from those decisions, and move on.
As self-directed learners, the Candescent Health team has the desire and intellectual curiosity to look up problems on their own. Employees also have an interest in sharing knowledge with others. The organization has quarterly engineering summits, brown bag lunch-and-learn sessions, informal town halls, and ever-busy Slack channels helping staff stay in-the-know about what's new and interesting in their work, their industry, and their lives.
