Who we are

Hello there, we’re Alan.

Wait… what is Alan?

Alan exists to reimagine the health system by creating a better experience centered on the user. Alan is a subscription to better living, where health is a part of the way you want to live, not a restriction on your way of living. Alan is your friend in health and your partner in the system.

We have started our mission by creating the first digital health insurance company in Europe! Specifically, we’re the first new insurance in France since… 1986! And we’ve raised more than €75m in less than three years from leading investors such as Index Ventures and DST Global Partners.

The Engineering team

  • In our engineering team, we build the infrastructure, interfaces, and applications to provide first-class service to our users, health professionals, and even ourselves!
  • Being an engineer at Alan means joining a team of talented, committed and passionate engineers, with a lot of product interaction.
  • We move fast, with a lot of ownership, and are proud to tackle big problems!
  • Our process is very simple: those who make product decisions are the same ones who build them.
  • Our stack is Python/Flask, React/Redux, React Native, PostgreSQL.
