Happy New Year from Cliniko! 🎉 We hope you had a bit of a break and that you’re heading into 2022 feeling refreshed. We’re back in full swing at Cliniko and looking forward to another year of supporting you as you run your practice. Read on to find up what we’ve been up to so far this year!

New team members at Cliniko

The Cliniko team keeps growing! 🥳 At the end of last year, we hired a few new people who we want to introduce to you, including two developers. The development team is always working on improving Cliniko, so you can simply focus on caring for your patients without having to worry about anything else.

Meet our new hires:

  • Nick joins the development team from Australia. He has 10 years development experience working with the platform on which Cliniko runs. Nick is looking forward to digging into features that’ll help practitioners be more effective in their day to day use of Cliniko. When he isn't working, Nick enjoys cycling, skiing and firing up the Xbox.
  • Lou is a software developer based in the Philippines. He has a background in embedded systems software engineering and web development. He also has experience in providing technical and administrative support. He’s excited to learn the ins and outs of healthtech and contribute to making Cliniko as good as possible. Outside of work, he can be found trying to keep up with his girls' unlimited energy and laughing with his wife. He likes coffee, composting, reading blogs, listening to podcasts and catching up on the latest in boxing and MMA.
  • Aisling has come on board as our new content writer. She lives in Australia and previously worked in universities as an academic and a curriculum writer, while also writing fiction. She can’t wait to work with the guest writers who feature on the Cliniko blog and to continue developing Cliniko’s original content. In her spare time, Aisling is an aerialist and plays the cello.

We’re bringing on more new developers later this year, so if you’re a developer who is keen to work with Cliniko and you missed our last hiring round, never fear! Keep an eye on our social accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram)  👀 We’d love for you to apply!
