Working in Engineering at Hinge
We have over 70 people in Engineering and we’re rapidly growing. We’re organized in neighborhoods, where teams who work on similar remits are grouped together. Each neighborhood has engineering, product, and design directors and each team is cross-functional and consists of an engineering manager, the triad (tech lead, product manager, product designer), and engineers (front-end, back-end and quality). The triad collaborates on discovery & design, defining the team’s roadmap, and supporting the team. Engineering managers provide support to the triad and the team. My neighborhood is the Core Components Neighborhood (catchy name to be determined) and our users are teams in other neighborhoods.
We use Slack for the majority of our asynchronous communication, Google Meet for meetings, and Tuple for pair programming. Although we’ve remained productive while working remotely I’m eager to return to an office environment at least part of the week so we can have in-person workshops and easier conversations.
Our tech stack is Nodejs, TypeScript, Nestjs, GraphQL, Docker, React, React Native, Rails, Aptible, AWS, Postgres, Redis, Apollo, and Redux. Our workflow is trunk-based CI/CD, and our security/compliance posture is at the highest standards of healthcare, including HIPAA, HITRUST, SOC 2, CCPA.
Our Site Reliability Engineers are on-call for production incidents, and teams are responsible for supporting services and components that they own. We’re still trying to work out how we want to structure on-call at the team level, but we think it’s important that teams are accountable for monitoring and maintaining their work.
We use a lot of open source projects for our work, including React and Rails.
We have a culture of talented, motivated, collaborative and supportive people coming together to make great things happen. Since we were forced to move to working from home last spring Iâve been thankful that our leadership team has been exceptionally aware of the impact of the pandemic on our mental health and has taken real measures to mitigate burnout, such as encouraging people to use sick leave for mental health, reminding everyone we have a Mental Wellness Budget, and giving us additional holidays.
As managers we are regularly checking in with our team to see how people are doing and that they are maintaining a healthy work/life balance. One of the struggles with moving to a WFH model is that many of us find it difficult to unplug at the end of the day and step back into our personal life when our work laptops are sitting right there waiting for us. We’ve exchanged strategies for making that end of day break a lot cleaner so people can have a relaxing evening, and I encourage my team to remove Slack from their phones and tuck their laptops away at the end of the day so they aren’t interrupted.
In past months we’ve been supporting team building by having virtual lunches (where everyone expenses their lunch and gets together to chat over Google Meet), holiday party events (such as champagne tasting, pasta making, and cocktail parties, where everyone got a kit and could join a virtual party), Hack Days, and an R&D Summit (where we had a full day of programming across 3 tracks of volunteers within the company sharing their knowledge).
We have a Learn-It-All (not Know-It-All) cultural value which carries throughout a lot of what we do. Professional development is a high priority and managers work with their reports to ensure they have a growth plan defined to either continue building their skills at their current level or start demonstrating their skills at the next level. We find opportunities for them to practice new skills and provide the support and coaching they need to feel confident doing so. We get 2 hours of time each week to dedicate to professional development.
I was really pleased that during our last round of promotions I was able to promote several of the engineers I was managing. They worked hard and deserved those promotions and it’s really gratifying to play a role in supporting them!
My favorite part about working here are the people – they’re talented, motivated, collaborative and supportive individuals who care deeply about doing good work and helping our customers. Iâm also excited about the potential applications of the technology we’re building and what kind of difference we may be able to make in the future.

Hinge Health delivers best-practice care that improves chronic pain without drugs or surgery.Fondée en 2014501-1000 employés
Musculoskeletal pain is prevalent across all types of workforces with 1 in 2 Americans suffering from it. To them, chronic back and joint pain is more than medical. It separates them from the activities they love and the relationships that define them. Unsurprisingly, many who suffer from chronic pain also suffer from anxiety and depression.
Until Hinge Health, the only options to treat chronic pain were opioids, costly surgery and in-person physical therapy.
Hinge Health is pioneering the worlds most complete Musculoskeletal digital clinic, starting with chronic pain. Currently, we are combining wearable-sensor exercise with 1-on-1 health coaching and patient education, we’re providing employers with a solution to tackle this #1 cost driver on health plans.
We have exciting expansion plans ahead! Last year Hinge Health began rolling out the world’s most complete Digital MSK Clinic, which includes:
Dedicated Digital Care Pathways for members across the MSK continuum:
- Prevention: tailored to each employer population, job-type specific, and covering 90% of job types in America
- Acute/episodic: covering all joint & muscle groups with unlimited access to 1-on-1 virtual-sessions with our Physical Therapists
- Chronic: Ongoing joint and back pain that afflicts half of working Americans and is the number one cost driver for employer health plans
- Surgical: covering pre/post surgical rehab for the most common MSK surgeries
- Expert medical opinion: focused on replacing unnecessary elective MSK surgeries with evidence-based conservative care; to further enhance our market-leading ROI
This expansion gives employers and health plans the most complete back and joint health solution!
So far we’ve helped over 80,000 working Americans in dozens of industries combat their pain and avoid both surgery and opioid use. Our users report 70% reduction in pain, with 2 out of 3 surgeries avoided.
4 in 5 employers with a digital MSK solution partner with Hinge Health and we have raised $1.1B to date and have 1,100+ employees across our San Francisco, Portland, Minneapolis, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, Austin, and remote offices. If youre passionate about improving the health of others and working on a big problem, were always looking for talented, ambitious, empathetic, and creative people.
