Hinge Health is building the world’s most patient-centered Digital Musculoskeletal (MSK) Clinic™. It is now the leading Digital MSK Clinic, used by four in five employers and 90% of health plans with a digital MSK solution.

Our Quality Engineering organization’s vision is to accelerate feature delivery to customers with confidence. Our mission is to reduce software quality risk at every stage of the SDLC by measuring & analyzing risk, implementing quality best practices and strategic test coverage. We do this by engaging early to develop robust test plans that ensure customer use cases are tested AND automated, identify quality metrics to guide successful feature rollouts. We also automate the release process to save human effort, reduce mistakes, and speed overall delivery.
As a Staff/Lead Automation Architect, you will work closely with other technical groups (developers, product owners, designers) to improve the software quality through automated and continuous testing. You will help define the appropriate test strategies, tools and best practices for automation processes. You will identify bottlenecks to the testing process and find solutions that remove developer frictions to quality and continuous integration. You will serve as a mentor to developers and other SDETs to improve test automation coverage, and help create, implement, maintain and improve automation test environments for multiple application platforms (web, mobile, backend services).
Fostering a culture of ownership, putting customers first and high quality engineering is key.
Our tech stack: Aptible, AWS, GraphQL, Postgres, Rails, React, ReactNative, Redis, Redux, Node and Typescript. Our workflow is trunk-based CI/CD. We deploy iOS and Android updates to users every two weeks. For automation, we use Cypress, Appium and other tools such as SonarQube. Our security/compliance posture is at the highest standards of healthcare, including HIPAA, HITRUST, SOC 2, CCPA.
