                    Who are our employees?-- At Virgin Pulse we're passionate about changing lives for good. We want to make a difference in the world by helping people---be healthy so they can perform at their best, every day, at work and home. Our award-winning solutions support leading employers in improving and simplifying the employee health and wellbeing journey and engaging people in all aspects of their health. But our world-class products and programs are nothing without our people - the employees who design, build, promote, sell, test and perfect the latest innovations in workplace health and wellbeing.

At Virgin Pulse, we have so much more than a strong, supportive company culture - have a shared vision for a healthier, happier world.-- Virgin Pulse values and celebrates diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We believe in creating teams made up of individuals with various backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, inspires innovation, collaboration, and challenges us to produce better solutions. As a global employer, we seek to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool.-- As we are committed to diversifying our company, we strongly encourage candidates that are historically underrepresented in the tech industry to apply. Our Technology Our next generation SAAS platform is using an exciting mixture of technologies: Large scale,--highly available, public-facing websites built in React/Angular/Angular2 and leveraging tools like Puppet, Pug, Grunt and NPM to make things automated and repeatable. Our Java/Scala/Kotlin-based REST API is built on Spring Boot and Hibernate which serves traffic to both web and mobile consumers. We're using--a combination of Mongo, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Cassandra and Redis. Redis, specifically, is used extensively in a distributed locking system, responsible for supporting real-time data processing. All of this uses Amazon Web Services extensively for stability and high availability.
