Employee Spotlight: Duane Hilton

News | April 23rd, 2024

The pandemic forever not only changed healthcare, but changed workplace culture. To support a growing team in a hybrid remote-office company, Rimidi reinforced our mission and our core values: tenacity, collaboration, curiosity, dependability, and diversity.

This year, we’re excited to feature the people and faces behind these core values with our employee spotlight series.

Meet Duane Hilton, Sr Django Python Developer.

Tell me about yourself.
Every day at Rimidi, I rely on Django, the open-source web framework, as my go-to tool for creating seamless clinical management platforms. Alongside my role as a software engineer, I've had the privilege of contributing to Django's documentation, enhancing its usability and accessibility for developers worldwide. Prior to diving into software engineering, I honed my professional writing skills as a copy editor at a news website.

What do you like most about the work we do here?
I have the opportunity to utilize cutting-edge technology to develop features that have a meaningful impact on the world. One crucial aspect of this is our advanced integration with Electronic Medical Records (EMR), leveraging real-time analytics and remote patient monitoring for our clients. By harnessing these innovative capabilities, we streamline workflows, empower healthcare providers, and ultimately contribute to improved patient outcomes.

What do you like about our company culture?
I like our collaborative culture that not only enables everyone to do their best work, but also drives our innovation. Rooted in our client’s feedback and partnership, this mindset extends to our internal team, empowering each member. It serves as the bedrock of our success, fostering a dynamic environment where teamwork and innovation flourish hand in hand. With open communication and mutual respect, we continually improve together.

Which company values resonate with you?
Tenacity. More than just a trait, it's a guiding principle that drives my approach to problem-solving. I believe in the potential for healthcare to be better, and I am committed to seeing that vision realized through our work. With each challenge we encounter, I strive to maintain a relentless pursuit of solutions, knowing that our efforts have the power to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

What motivates you?
I'm motivated by overcoming tough challenges and forging lasting connections. Each obstacle I conquer reinforces the importance of resilience and strategic problem-solving. But what truly drives me is the opportunity to build enduring relationships. These connections help us solve problems, create lasting impact, and build a strong sense of community that goes beyond the challenges we encounter.
