In the last year, Medtep has grown notably. The company now has offices in San Francisco, Barcelona and Mexico City, and the team members keeps growing month after month.
This is due to the growth the company is going through from the success of our online platform, a system which facilitates healthcare professional-patient monitoring through personalized care plans for rare and chronic diseases.
Amongst the young talents which form Medtep is Marc Cerrato, Backend Developer of the company.
When did you start working at Medtep?
I started working at Medtep in September 2013. I must confess the decision was not easy at the time, as I had many interesting job offers on the table. I ended up choosing Medtep for its project, potential and the opportunity it offered me to grow professionally. I do not regret my decision.
How have you lived the growth of the company?
With lots of hope, but also with a lot of responsibility. It’s true that things are going well, and the team is growing very fast, but it is also true that every time more is expected of us. We are in a sector which is changing very quickly and it is easy to get left behind if we relax. We have to ensure we have our foot on the accelerator at all times.
What do you think the success formula of the company is?
Without a doubt, the team. We have a team of excellent professionals and it is very well balanced. The implication level and willingness to improve every day is key for the growth of the company.
How is a normal day at Medtep?
A day at Medtep is like a day amongst friends who share your same dreams and professional goals. We work very hard and, as in all companies, there are moments of tension, problems and deadlines, but the great environment makes it worth it. At the end of the day it is not rare to see many of us sharing beers and laughs at our office terrace.
What do you like the most about working here?
The product we offer can really make a difference in the life of many people. We are checking this not only with the results we are receiving in various studies and pilots, but also from the positive feedback we receive directly from our users.
How do you see Medtep in 5 years?
In 5 years I see Medtep as what Uber is for transport: taking innovation to a market which needs it and offering the tools to facilitate the relation between healthcare professionals and patients to improve the quality of life of patients and reduce costs.
