  • Doximity's Dr. Pete Alperin shares his take on the state of the health care worker shortage with Talent Economy.

    The State of the Health Care Worker Shortage - Talent Economy

    Health care work needs a check-up. An aging population and expanding health care coverage means there are more patients to care for, but the supply of workers is struggling to keep up. Additionally, some areas of specialty and nursing will soon see the providers retiring en masse.

Doximity – Why Work For Us?

5 things to know about Doximity

1. We’re No. 1 for clinicians

Doximity is the largest community of healthcare professionals in the country - with over 70% of US doctors and 45% of all NPs and physician assistants as verified members, and thousands of nurse practitioners, PAs and pharmacists. In just three years, our vertical social network has grown to a larger membership than the American Medical Association and more physician users than Epic, the top EMR in the country, and has continued to grow. Aside from the iPhone, there’s never been a piece of technology adopted by clinicians as quickly as Doximity. If you’re a clinician, claim your profile today.

2. Caring for clinicians is our focus

You might call us medical groupies. Doximity’s passion for working with clinicians is what helped us grow to No. 1. We believe that when the whole care coordination team is connected, patients benefit and the medical sector works better. Listening to what clinicians need and then building simple tools to solve complex problems is what we do. Our vision is a future where medical communication is effortless — fast, simple, seamless and secure.

3. Medicine is mobile, and so are we

Clinicians are mobile by nature, so Doximity has a mobile-first development perspective. Physicians, nurse practitioners and PAs use Doximity to instantly connect with other healthcare professionals, securely collaborate on patient treatment, grow their practices and discover new career opportunities. 70% of our activity is on mobile devices and 85% of our doctors use iPhones Download our mobile apps.

4. Our expertise in digital health runs deep

The Doximity team includes health tech leaders from Cleveland Clinic, Practice Fusion, UCSF, Medscape, Brown & Toland, Stanford University and Rock Health. Our CEO Jeff Tangney previously founded and led Epocrates (EPOC) to IPO. We’ve received $81 million in funding from top VC funds with a focus on digital health, including Emergence Capital Partners, InterWest Partners, Morgenthaler Ventures (now Canvas Fund), Draper Fisher Jurvetson, T. Rowe Price and Morgan Stanley Investment Management. Doximity had its first cash-flow positive month in January 2014.

    * "Feels" like a smaller company, everyone is in it together and working collaboratively
    * Amazing retention rate: people really do love working here and it shows in how few people leave
    * Pay, benefits, competence of a bigger company
    * Good work/life balance. The office is usually empty by 600pm and employees with families are treated well
    * Quarterly offsites are fun, break up the year nicely, and keep people motivated
    * Innovation is encouraged at every level
    * Promotions have come from within -- opportunity for advancement
    * Mentorship and continuing education, budget for conferences


    Not many here.

    * Some growing pains around data, but these have been addressed
    * Work from home policy could be a bit more flexible

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Trust the people you've hired to make the right decisions. Also monitory burnout better among the veteran employees.

    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Doximity (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.


    Phone screen with recruiter
    Home assignment - Rails app (3 tasks)
    Onsite - 2 rounds - 2 engineering managers
    Engineering Director call
    It took 3 days to complete the home assignment. The engineering mgr/dir reviewed the pull requests and 2 days later I received onsite invitation. Impressively fast turn around after that. The recruiter was very knowledgeable and quick to answer any questions. Onsite wasn't heavy on algorithm, it was more of knowledge on ruby, rails and database.
