Grand Rounds – Why Work For Us?


The Grand Rounds vision is a path to optimal health and healthcare, accessible to everyone, everywhere.

undefined

Founded in 2011, Grand Rounds orchestrates the analytics, expertise, and technology needed to deliver positive outcomes and cost savings through its Outcomes Management platform. In addition, employers are able to power their network strategy with Grand Rounds proprietary Quality Algorithm that scores physician quality on metrics that are predictive of future outcomes. By delivering better outcomes to patients around the world and cost-savings to groups ranging from 1,000 employees to Fortune 50 employers, Grand Rounds is uniquely positioned to enhance medical care for millions of covered lives.

Grand Rounds is for:

Individuals and families confronting serious health issues.

Grand Rounds boosts the speed with which they receive accurate clinical diagnoses–from weeks to only days–and provides measurably better outcomes.

Benefits, HR, and Finance Executives.

Grand Rounds dramatically reduces companies’ healthcare expenses and gets employees back to work sooner by providing accurate clinical diagnoses and proper options for treatments from the start.

Preeminent physicians.

Grand Rounds connects physicians to the patients who need them most—and whose cases directly align with their experience and training—while providing an ancillary revenue stream.

At Grand Rounds, we’re dedicated to guiding patients to better healthcare outcomes.

People are often treated well by their standard physicians—that is, as long as the medical issues they experience are general in nature. The problem occurs when people need to see a specialist. What if they have a particular form of pancreatic cancer, or a highly unusual back problem?  When this happens, people may get the right diagnosis—but are they getting the right treatment, the kind informed by state-of-the-art care and technology?

They will if they happen to be a politician or a celebrity. But when those resources aren’t available to everyone, that’s when incorrect treatment (and the medical complications that result) end up wasting billions of dollars a year, all of which work to drive up healthcare costs. The impact on people’s health and quality of life is even worse.

At Grand Rounds, we think there’s a better way. We think we can build a physician network that’s so strong and so deep that all people in the world, when they need to, can find the exact specialist who can diagnose and treat their particular condition. And when they need to see someone in person, we think we can provide a path to the most qualified physician in the patient’s geographic area.

Our vision is that a path to positive healthcare outcomes is available to everyone, at any time.

That’s huge. Because by putting the odds in the patient’s favor and ensuring that the right treatment is recommended, we help save lives. We guide patients to better outcomes.

Our vision is that quality healthcare access isn’t limited to the wealthy or the privileged. Our vision is that a path to positive healthcare outcomes is available to everyone, at any time. And every day, with each new case we treat and every new physician we add to our network, we’re making that vision a reality.

WE HAVE A MISSION.

Everyone gets sick, but not all of us have equal access to state-of-the-art care. Grand Rounds levels the playing field. We connect patients to world-class doctors, giving them extraordinary outcomes. As part of our team, you will literally witness lives being saved. The work here matters.

WE HAVE THE TEAM.

Check out our management page, advisory boards, and our investors—these people are experienced, they know how to create success, and they’re hyper-focused on making Grand Rounds the new name in healthcare.

WE HAVE THE CULTURE.

Our team members genuinely enjoy working with each other—whether it’s helping our latest patient find the right physician, going out to happy hour, or collaborating on our latest product innovation. We work hard to support one another.

We’re only missing one thing…you. Review the jobs on the left and click the ones you want.

Grand Rounds: Impactful Collaborative Engineering

Ken Berland, Head of Engineering

As software engineers at Grand Rounds, we build a product that changes—and sometimes even saves—lives. Making software that impacts lives requires great engineers, meaningful collaboration and a supportive environment. None of this is a secret but, in my experience, most technology companies fail at building this foundation because they can't provide one or all of those three prerequisites.

With that in mind, Grand Rounds built its Engineering team around these guiding principles:

Create an environment where teamwork is encouraged and rewarded.

At Grand Rounds, we foster an environment of collaboration where our business team and developers work together, all the time, to get the job done. Our engineering group is composed of small, self-organizing teams that avoid combinatorial explosion; we encourage development; we design processes that guide us from planning to deployment, making measuring progress a key part of the process; and we limit the size of our projects so that we can demo something every week and get things done.

Invest in systems that don't need constant firefighting.

We run on Rails and write Ruby. We practice TDD and have over 10,000 specs running with each commit. We love having this safety net because it allows us to be bold and refactor all the time. We fight and make up over code reviews. We emphasize full-stack development. And we deploy in the Cloud and favor managed services. Of course, every engineer has a specialty and expertise that we harness, but we don't over-index. Rather, we spread that expertise among projects and services and prize expertise in software development over a narrow technical focus. The result is that engineers can focus on their work and benefit from great uptime and infrequent fires.

Hire great engineers.

We set the bar high when it comes to hiring, and we’ve kept it there. As we've scaled through 30 engineers, it becomes increasingly tempting to hire contributors who can pull tickets and commit passable code. However, we're looking for more than that. We want engineers who are driven to automate and who believe that a smaller group of highly effective and focused individuals can easily accomplish more than a group twice their size. If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grand Rounds (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Very efficient process that was well-communicated to me in advance. There were just enough meetings for them to get to know me, and no more or less. Nearly everyone I met with was great; they were surprisingly supportive, considering the interview process can be so awkward for all involved. Unlike some reports I see below, the recruiters I worked with were fantastic also.

    Only weird observation is that I was continually confused by the conflicting messages I received about the role, and kept wondering, "what exactly is the role's objective?" Even within the same team, one person would say, "We really need someone to do XYZ" while another would say, "We don't do XYZ here and don't plan to." Naturally, not knowing if your skills are relevant or not can make it difficult for you to sell yourself. Plan to pivot quickly because you may not have another opportunity to course correct.
