Named among Forbes’ 2014 America’s Most Promising Companies and Glassdoor’s 2015 Best Places to Work, Evolent provides an opportunity to work with top talent in an organization committed to career development. While we come from a variety of backgrounds, we pursue a singular mission: to change the health of the nation by changing the way health care is delivered.

Culture First!

We’ve built a team of dedicated individuals who genuinely enjoy working together. Our accessible leadership team cultivates an open-door environment.

Treadmill desks, healthy snacks and wellness challenges are just part of our resolve to promote a healthy (and fun!) work environment. We recognize and reward our most valuable asset—our team—with competitive pay and annual performance-based bonuses. We offer comprehensive health benefits, a company-matched 401(k) beginning day one and flexible spending accounts for daycare and transit. Each Evolenteer receives 25 personal and 10 holiday paid days off each year and a sabbatical option at 5 years. We proudly sponsor company-wide community service projects.

Apply online:
All of our active roles are posted on our current opportunities page. To find the best career match; you can search for jobs by location, category and keyword. Submitting your resume takes two minutes and can be done from any device - even your phone! Don’t worry if you don’t have an updated resume - you can also apply with your LinkedIn profile. After you have submitted your application, you will receive an email confirmation.

Resume review:
After successful submission, a member of our Recruiting Team will review your information and qualifications - either way you will be notified. When there’s a match, a recruiter will contact you by email to set up a phone conversation.    

Talent Team phone interview:
After the recruiter has viewed your resume, they will reach out to schedule a phone interview. This call will give you time to talk about successful work achievements and experiences. It’s also a great time to ask questions and learn more about our culture, values and mission. After the call, the recruiter will submit your candidacy to the hiring manager for review.

Hiring Manager Phone interview:
When the hiring manager gives a thumbs up, a member of the recruiting team will contact you to set up 30 minute phone conversation between you and the hiring manager. The goal of this call is to give you a more in-depth understanding of the position. From here, the hiring manager will evaluate your candidacy against other applicants and suggest an in-person interview for the top candidates.

In-person interview:
Join us in the office! We’ll give you a tour, let you experience our culture and introduce you to members of the team! The onsite interviews are team based; you will meet individually with four members of the group. Each member will spend up to 45 minutes with you – getting to know your work style and answering any of your questions. During the interview, the Evolenteer will ask you a set of behavior based questions. These questions are designed to elicit a response that speaks to your past experiences. An example of a behavioral based question is: “Tell me about a time you had to work with teams across the organization and how you achieved the goal together.”

Final steps:
After the in-person interview, the team will compile their feedback of all candidates and will make a final decision. Once a decision is made, the group will reach out via phone to deliver the good news! If this wasn’t a perfect match, the team will give you a call to let you know how to stay in touch for any future openings.

    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time (More than a year)


    Where to start? Smart people. Dynamic, fast-paced work environment where there is always something new to learn and someone new to meet. Problems actually get solved here, and you can have a hand in solving them. See something you don't like? Change it--you have the power. Leadership is outstanding--dedicated and knowledgeable. Beautiful Arlington office that feels like Silicon Valley. Love the workout facilities and treadmill desks and standing desks and all of the support for living a healthy lifestyle. The mission is a good one--I sleep well at night knowing that I'm working for an organization that is making health care fundamentally better. We have great camraderie on the IT team. Pot-luck lunches and after-work get-togethers and always someone to eat lunch with. And we eat lunch every day, often walking out to the food trucks which congregate nearby. Evolent Health is the best place I've ever worked.


    Because Evolent is a rapidly-growing (and therefore rapidly-changing) organization, it helps to be flexible and adaptable. People who want reams of written procedures and protocols in order to function may not excel in this environment, where those things are evolving but not yet completely established. I don't know anyone who hasn't put in some extra hours over the course of the last year, but on the flip side, I don't know anyone who couldn't take a break when they needed it either. But it is a demanding place to work. Oh, and this is a land of many meetings. But there are active efforts to streamline and if you don't think you're needed in a meeting, you can say so.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't feel the need to share advice with management on Glassdoor. In the past, when I've had feedback for anyone on the leadership team, I just send them an e-mail and to date I've already received prompt and heart-felt responses. We are treated very well and with a great deal of respect.
