One in two people experience debilitating back, neck, shoulder, or joint pain — but traditional treatments have failed to meet their needs. Physical therapy can be expensive and hard to access; appointments often involve long commutes and missed work. Making matters worse, unresolved pain can trigger the overuse of opioids and surgeries.
Join us in reimagining healthcare from the ground up. We’re making high-quality care accessible by pairing wearable sensors and computer vision with a world-class clinical team. Hinge Health puts a digital clinic in every member's pocket. Now millions of people can access personalized digital care from a physical therapist, guidance on behavior change from a health coach, and expert consultations with an orthopedic surgeon. With a single app and wearable technology like our Enso device, we’re helping to reduce pain, surgeries, and opioid use.
Data Engineers at Hinge Health are software engineers with expertise in data pipelines, OLTP & data warehouse schema design, data governance, ETL, RDBMS and NoSQL systems. Data Engineers are hands-on, building self-service tools and automation that enable application engineers and data analysts to manage, maintain, and secure their data systems with autonomy while adhering to best practices in a HIPAA environment.
