An Insider's view of VillageMD

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Aggregating disparate sets into one consumable interface is difficult. We constantly think about how to solve it faster and better while keeping it flexible and scalable.

What makes someone successful on your team?

It’s an individual’s willingness to get into the details, fully understand the current path to delivery, and think critically about the problems that face primary care providers today that will make them successful at VillageMD.

Director, Product Development

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is centered on holding our work to high standards while maintaining an environment focused on fun and collaboration. My coworkers and I will often be working on completely unrelated projects, but when we hit a roadblock we step back and ask each other for feedback and help. That’s usually when we find the best solutions.
