An Insider's view of Grand Rounds

What's something quirky about your company?

At 3pm everyday, folks from IT and engineering do planks and increase the time by a couple seconds every day. I'm waiting for them to restart the clock before I join in again, but it's a nice ritual. We are a healthcare company, after all!


Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

To meet the emerging needs presented by COVID-19, we are expanding our capabilities and offering new product packages, building on our core clinical and technological strengths. When the GR team is passionate about a problem, we can deliver life changing products and services to our Members with agile speed


Chief of Staff

What does career growth look like on your team?

We're principled in our approach. Here at Grand Rounds I spend a lot of time understanding where an engineer is going, and then working with them to build out a custom plan to get there. Career growth at Grand Rounds is much more personalized vs. following a standard career ladder description.


Senior Manager, Data Engineering

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to personalize healthcare by leveraging technology and combining with the right human connection to navigate everyone, everywhere to the best medical outcomes. Think Jarvis (from Iron Man) as your personal healthcare assistant!

Anant Gupta

Sr. Director, Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?

Each team member sets the culture of rooting for the team, practicing open communication, and driving healthy debate. They value the importance of their efforts towards making a meaningful difference to the lives of our members which helps them stay engaged and motivated every single day.
