As a kid, Jim wanted to build things, and that desire led him to earn his PhD in mechanical engineering. While in school, Jim started learning to code in his spare time, and followed that by learning to write iOS apps on the side. Jim was soon offered a job in Silicon Valley and has been happily engineering ever since.
Jim arrives early, at 7:30 AM, so that he can ease into his day and get his coding accomplished. When the team arrives, they chart out the day’s tasks or issues, and the rest of the afternoon is spent working on the latest projects, such as adding new features to the app or training the newest mobile engineers.
“Health care in the United States is incredibly complex, so any time we can take the complexity of health care and simplify it—make it more straightforward and more understandable and more easy to use—that’s great. That’s our goal.”
“How can we build the best possible mobile app, the best experience for our customers? That’s our starting point.”
