I’m proud to announce and celebrate our new growth.
We’ve made four exciting hires in the past few months. Each one has a unique and diversified background, bringing our culture to new heights.
The bios below will give you a sense of who they are, what they stand for, and why they joined MIC. You can click their names to learn more.
Meet Heather Hitchcock, VP of Marketing
When I met Heather, I was blown away by her energy and enthusiasm. She told me one of her former CEO’s called her a “tornado of positive energy,” and I couldn’t agree more.
Her 25 years of healthcare sales and marketing experience was a plus, but it was her creative approach to marketing that caught my eye. Heather believes marketing is educating people about the problems you solve, finding people who have that problem, and discovering if they believe your solution can solve it.
She loves marketing, because if you look at it from this angle, you’re really just helping people. This philosophy embodies why Craig and I founded the company, and the reason every member of the MIC team is here.
Why Heather Chose MIC
“Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect opportunity – a job where you can’t wait to get up in the morning and start working, where you love collaborating with your colleagues, and where you feel like you’re making a difference.
I’m happy to say I’ve found that at MIC.
I couldn’t be more excited to help bring their technology to life. To help spread the word of how it’s one of the first healthcare IT solutions with the ability to transform healthcare and save lives. To prove to the industry that it isn’t vaporware; that it’s a substantial, proven software platform with the intelligence behind it to deliver on its promises.
I am also so excited to have the opportunity to continue to learn each and every day by working with some of the most intelligent, compassionate, and dedicated individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.” – Heather
Meet Sacha Csicsery-Ronay, UI/UX Developer
With over 10 years of experience in music production, social gaming, and interactive software development, Sacha Csicsery-Ronay brings a diverse background to MIC and a whole new life to the UX of our products.
Sacha has the ability to push past the status quo of healthcare designs and create something that looks like the innovative software products consumers use today. When I saw his previous work, and his ability to achieve the look of Google and Apple products, I knew he’d be a valuable addition.
Why Sacha Chose MIC
“I love working with passionate, opinionated, and incredibly intelligent people. Every day I become a better and more knowledgeable person by being around the MIC team; a team that’s dedicated to making life better for people on a grand scale.
I am excited to use my skills on a product that can actually save lives.
As a UI/UX Developer, I want the Sickbay Platform to offer an intuitive, inviting, and elegant user experience.
My primary goal by the end of the year would be to have a cohesive suite of integrated applications available, with intuitive interaction flow between them. And my ultimate goal is to make the product look and feel as amazing as the underlying technology.” – Sacha
Meet Raajen Patel, Analytics Developer
Raajen Patel uses math to solve real problems and over the years has found himself working with space cameras, oil wells, and cephalopods. His machine learning skills will help us further develop our products based on real user needs and requirements. I couldn’t be happier to have him on our team.
Why Raajen Chose MIC
“I jumped at the chance to help treat people who are suffering from an illness. I am especially excited to work alongside my fellow MIC colleagues. Everyone brings a unique skill set to drive innovation, collaboration, and accomplishment. We work together to solve problems and reach incredible goals. My goal is to work directly with physicians to further improve our research tool and ensure its usefulness exceeds all expectations.” – Raajen
Meet Christian Pesantes, Developer
Christian is a new graduate with a BS in Computer Science and a Math minor. During his time as an intern, he demonstrated great passion for programming and perseverance to overcome any obstacle. He is self-motivated, eager to learn new things, and always on the look-out for ways to improve himself and his contributions to the team. Christian’s skillset and determination makes him a great asset for MIC.
Why Christian Chose MIC
“I always told myself that my eventual job had to satisfy 2 major personal requirements: first I wanted to learn a lot by helping solve complex problems and second, and most importantly, I wanted my work to make a difference in the world. So, I was naturally impressed and excited when I met MIC during a presentation they gave at the University of Houston. MIC develops technology that saves lives; I couldn’t be happier to be part of this.” – Christian
What These New Hires Mean To MIC
The expansion of our team is exciting. It makes me proud that such talented individuals want to be a part of what we’ve built; I feel like it is a true testament that we’re doing something right. And we’re not done.
MIC is planning to make additional hires throughout the year, specifically in the sales and technology space.
More importantly, we’ll be leveraging all these great minds to develop and bring to market more clinical apps throughout the year to support additional clinical needs around virtual patient monitoring and predictive analytics.
These apps will transform our research based and alarm optimization solution to a true Clinical Intelligence Platform.
