Reasons to Work for athenahealth

It's fun to work with a team this good. We hire the best of the best. If you're considering Google, Apple, or TripAdvisor you'll feel right at home here. Our development team recruits right on campus. We hire alums from MIT, Harvard, Georgia Tech, Olin, and many more. We find the Putnam fellows, the two-time Silver Medalists at International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) and other smart folks who do math for fun. We even have weekly math club meetings and hack-a-thons for those who need more than algorithms.

We put problem Solving First—Code second. We are continually innovating and in the business of bringing the cloud to healthcare. Our developers don't consider themselves code monkeys but pioneers who are helping leap frog the entire healthcare industry forward! We encourage developers to ask, why are we doing this? Why are we doing this, this way? Is there a better way?

Enjoy a startup atmosphere in a non-start-up. After celebrating our 13th birthday, we realized that athenahealth is no longer a start-up, but that doesn't mean we can't act like one. We believe that the only way for creative, brilliant minds to succeed is by fostering a fun and flexible environment. Where else can you celebrate talk like a pirate day, Pi Day, take a field trip to the movies, and get free fountain soda whenever you want? Halloween is not only celebrated, it's encouraged!

You DON'T need healthcare experience to work here. Healthcare costs in this country have quadrupled over the last few decades and 200,000 people die each year from "preventable medical errors." We all have been patients, wouldn't you like to improve your experience? Doctors can actually treat more patients if we decrease their administrative duties. This is why they went to medical school! And why we trust them with our health! Healthcare is a HUGE numbers problem, with 200-300 million patients, close to a million MDs, thousands of insurance providers, thousands of rules with each insurance provider, and constantly changing government requirements. So our challenge: make this system work, while it's running! Come help us solve this problem!

Experience a true meritocracy. On the athenahealth core development team, everybody codes, from fresh college graduates to the Chief Software Architects. The teams are small, there is lots of opportunity to get recognized, and you'll be working with our business leaders to solve some of complex and interesting issues. We value results and reward those who find a way to succeed. If you're driven, focused, and capable, athenahealth is a great place to make a difference.

Make yourself at home. We don't hire resume builders and we don't switch to the latest technology fad every six months. If you want an atmosphere where successful people grow, then you'll be very happy at athenahealth.

If you don't feel like reading the aforementioned, this is us in a nutshell: We hire smart people. We listen to you. We have proven success. We are making a difference.
