There is one good answer, our mission is to “Explore the boundaries of the possible, and create life-changing experiences through feature-rich, defect-free software that works everywhere and every time.”

Our websites and Web applications are available in over 35 countries and 28 languages; we reach more than 6 million people per year. Over the past 18-months, we architected, developed, tested, and deployed more than 260 digital healthcare projects. We serve a mix of Rx and OTC/CPG brands. And, we won 2 design awards in 2018. We are stacking our team because our client responsibilities are growing rapidly.

When you join Arteric, you will experience opportunities and challenges that will catalyze your growth. We believe in a Just Culture that focuses on technical competence, the merit of ideas, hard work, and innovation. We value a passion for learning and discovery, industriousness, selflessness, resilience, rigorous honesty, and exceptional competence.

We make it easy for you to enjoy life inside and outside of work. We have a generous paid-time-off policy that mandates unplugged time off (bonuses are paid for disconnecting - no email or phone communication), 100% paid employee medical insurance, 401k retirement savings plan with non-elective employer contribution, long- and short-term disability insurance, vision, dental, and more.
