The Digital Innovation Group (DIG) at Providence is a small but mighty product development and incubation team. We build next-gen tools that give patients convenient and easy access to health care anywhere, anytime. DIG is both a healthcare startup and a technology/product incubator.

  • Configure CI/CD systems to automatically build and publish your solutions to Apple and Google app stores.

  • Ramp up on new techniques and best practices for mobile development, and advocate improvements with the team.

  • Mentor junior developers through code and design reviews.
