About the Cloud Operations Team

The "Cloud Operations" organization at Syapse is responsible for the Cloud platform that enables healthcare providers to bring precision medicine to every cancer patient today.  This organization is responsible for the platform reliability, Information security, customer support, innovating user experience leveraging Cloud technologies and improving product delivery excellence.

We’re now in the process of scaling our platform and expanding access to precision cancer care. Because most cloud technologies aren’t HIPAA-compliant, we often build from the ground up. Our autonomous, feature-focused scrum teams work in two-week sprints and own projects end to end, while our domain-based guilds encourage collaboration across teams.

As Syapse continues to grow, we’ll expand our use of Docker containers on Kubernetes, micro-services, CI/CD tools, automation frameworks, Cloud capabilities on data visualization and data metrics tools to expand the scalability features of our platform. And we’ll do that while prioritizing collaboration, ownership, and career progression. Our belief is the focus on building a reliable high performing Precision Oncology platform will help doctors deliver the best cancer care.
