Who is Modea?

We are a technology consultancy with a mission to infuse greater control, transparency, and choice into the consumer healthcare experience. To do this, we work with large healthcare providers to help them build out a digital roadmap, then design and build mobile, web, and other digital experiences. We fundamentally believe that this work helps consumers have better information and access to care, and our clients to build stronger customer relationships.

Here are a few ways to get to know our work in healthcare:

  • Check out the Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital website. Our team built the entire experience on a cutting-edge, headless CMS implementation.
  • Download the Ballad Health mobile app. We designed this app using the Ionic UI kit and built it on a cross-platform framework for both iOS and Android.
  • Search for a doctor at the Carilion Clinic website. We helped them transform their site experience and digital tools like search and find-a-doc.
  • Flip through this conference presentation deck about some data science work we did with Childrens National.

Here are a few other reasons why you should apply:

First, youll love the work we do and the people youll get to do it with. Weve assembled an exceptionally smart and hardworking team and youll enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow Modeans. We also work with great clients who value us and our contributions. At Modea, design is fundamental and essential to our work.

Second, Modea offers a great benefits package that provides both a fun and enjoyable workplace and great perks that will improve your quality of life:

  • Paid time off
  • Modern, open plan office (Due to COVID 19, we are currently 100% remote)
  • Fully stocked kitchen
  • Team lunches
  • Regular employee events (parties, community service, etc.)
  • Discounted gym membership
  • Paid downtown parking
  • Generous health, dental, and vision insurance
  • 401k with fully vested company matching
  • Long term & short term disability insurance

Some of these benefits, like parties and snacks, have had to adapt to the remote work environment we are currently in, but our operations team has found innovative ways to support our team, from regular care packages to a work-from-home stipend. We take care of our team.

The working environment here at Modea is one of accountability and autonomy. We are working to solve big problems. So we expect a lot, but give team members the tools, freedom, and flexibility to come up with great solutions. Together, our team is developing world-class technology that will change the way healthcare is delivered.
