About Curv

Curv Health is building a platform for delivering digital therapies, starting with physical injuries and pain. Given that most healthcare does not occur in clinics or hospitals, but rather in people's homes, our platform is designed to optimize compliance and outcomes through an asynchronous and remote approach to patient care. The mobile applications you will be working on are a core component in this system.
Our mission is to help everyone build better and healthier lives.

How We Work

As a startup, our main goal is to validate that we are building the right thing. We focus on shipping functioning code and do our best to avoid extensive design debates around already-written features. We reserve these discussions (and most non-critical work) for regularly scheduled work periods, when the development team can redesign and refactor to their hearts' content.
All team members support each other through code review, pair programming and other venues, but we also each take responsibility for ensuring our work meets requirements. We enforce minimal gatekeeping on getting code into production. If you have built a feature and are confident it works as expected, you are more than welcome to ship it. Of course we all make mistakes occasionally, so we maintain a safety net in the form of:

  • Automated test suites;
  • Automated development and staging environments which adhere as closely as possible to production specifications.# The RoleYou will work closely with our mobile development team, Product Manager, and members of our backend platform team to implement new features and fix bugs in our Android applications.
