An Insider's view of CancerIQ

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We all believe in our product and want to see it succeed, which means we're always pushing the boundaries of healthcare and of ourselves. We work fast and encourage each other, so we learn fast. Here you can propose an idea, see it built and launch it, which you don't get at a larger organization. In my first 6 weeks I released a brand new product!

Hilary Mohs

Product Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I get to sell to people that are excited to hear from me. Our product solves a problem for everyone - including our sales channel partners that I get to interact with and learn from. From drafting proposals & negotiating terms to providing feedback on product & marketing ideas - it's never a dull moment at CancerIQ

Annie Stoik

Account Executive

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I initially joined to get some practical experience before going to grad school for genetic counseling. While observing workflow and supporting clinical users, I fell in love with CancerIQ's user-centered design process and never wanted to leave. I'm now transitioning to the product team and look forward to a career in product management.

Sadie Freedman

Product Specialist

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to be a product-focused, "apple" of the health tech world that is able to build products that make the most complex concepts in genomics easy to understand and apply in everyday care. Sadly there are few healthcare solutons that are simple, elegant, and informative enough that doctors and patients will actually love

Haibo Lu

VP of Product & Customer Success

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Healthcare data, specifications, and interfaces tend to be archaic and non-standard across healthcare systems. Developing a modern platform that is inter-operable with old systems requires designing and building around inherent complexities through careful domain-driven modeling, flexible micro-services, and sophisticated adapters.
