I couldn’t be happier with the partner I found in Persimmon. We’ve grown to a 40-person team that handles design, apps, data, analytics, and integration across multiple product lines. Persimmon understands the dynamic nature of startups, and adapts our team to have the skills we need as soon as we need them. They haven’t let me down.

What sets us apart?

We vigorously screen applicants, and only hire the best. We then train them further. First, on the best practices in industry for engineering and remote collaboration. And then on the terminology, data formats, and workings of the US healthcare system. This prepares them to seamlessly integrate with your team with minimal ramp-up time. No (re)training is needed, our people plug right in to accelerate your team.


We hire only 2% of the people who apply. We evaluate them on their skills, curiosity, attitude, and ambition.
