Meet Matt Peck, UI Lead at Populi. He writes code that allows our customers to easily navigate Populi Connect and manage user provisioning and reference data, including making updates to their organization’s Populi Connect users, provider aliases, and provider relationships. If you’re looking for a steak and a nice bourbon to sip on, pay Matt a visit.
Q: What’s your role at Populi, and what does an average day look like for you?
A: I’m the UI Lead. I spend most of my day collaborating with our UI/UX Designer Kevin Cote and implementing his designs using React in our Populi Connect product. When I’m not coding, I’m checking in with the product team to make sure we are working on the next most important thing.
Q: What do you like most about working for Populi?
A: 100% the culture. I can be myself here. I also have a big family, and I’ve never had any issues when I’ve needed to pull away to take care of them. It’s not like a normal startup, it’s better.
Q: What do you think is the most important benefit of the detailed healthcare analytics and insights that Populi provides?
A: That’s a really good question. To me, the most important benefit is the ability for providers to gain insights about their local population so that they can learn how to better serve them. It’s connecting the interests of healthcare as a business to the medical needs of people whose health would improve from knowing about and using their services.
Q: Why should someone join your team at Populi?
A: The UI Team is building with the latest tech, stunning visual designs and cutting edge frontend architecture. If you pride yourself on meticulous detail, eloquent programming and customer-focused design, then we have a spot for you.
Q: What do you do in your free time?
A: A little bit of everything. When I’m not hanging with the fam, you can catch me grilling, playing guitar, lifting some weights or sipping on some bourbon.
Q: What’s your favorite part about being a dad?
A: Re-exploring my childhood hobbies with my kids and the dad jokes of course!
Q: Marvel or DC? Bonus question: Who’s your favorite character?
A: Marvel all the way. Spider-Man for sure. He’s strong, fast and doesn’t take himself too seriously.
Q: What’s your go-to midnight snack?
A: I’ve been making chips and cheese a lot lately. My wife made me watch “This Is Us” with her recently, and I’m pretty sure that’s when it started… and now I want some.
