Alpha's Health Moonshot
Worldwide, healthcare costs have been increasing faster than GDP for 50 years, whilst key indicators such as life expectancy have plateaued in many countries. The root cause is a change in disease burden – across the world, today’s biggest diseases and biggest killers are chronic diseases such as cancer, heart attack, stroke, and mental health disorders. In fact, for every life saved from infections since 2000, we’ve lost two lives to chronic disease.
However, it’s now well-established that the main cause of chronic diseases is everyday behaviours such as poor diet, lack of exercise, using tobacco, excessive alcohol, or lack of sleep. To make tackling everyday behaviours even harder, pioneers in neuroscience and behavioural economics have begun to reveal that people are not even really in conscious control of their behaviour.
The Engineering team is divided into several five-person feature teams. Each feature team has a Tech Lead, four Engineers, a Product Owner and QA. We also have a matrix support structure across feature teams.
Engineers are very autonomous, we guard against one Engineer directing others. Tech Leads co-ordinate but do not control. We are open, very courteous and our retros are both focused and impressive - we continually improve. We make joint decisions and we are collectively responsible for our choices.
We use Scrum extensively. Our current software stack is Typescript on NodeJS, Angular+Ionic, MongoDB, Docker amongst others. We’re building distributed services using DDD.
A recent team survey told us our engineering team feels their opinion is valued and we've an incredible peer learning culture. We're focused on building a brilliant, bright engineering team. Most Engineers are software polyglots.
