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.

    1. Evolent truly celebrates its values and culture above all, and they work hard to maintain this culture for its employees.
    2. This is a company full of positive thinking staff who truly care about the mission of the company, and who will do anything they can to make the company a success
    3. Each employee is valued, from the top to the bottom of the organization, and there is an open-door policy so any colleague can approach leadership at any time to share their ideas and even discuss general career goals.
    4. The office space and technology are all top quality and contemporary
    5. Teamwork is valued and people are always willing to help out when help is needed!
    6. Health and wellness are important at Evolent, as well as charitable activities, so there are always charity events, yoga, and wellness challenges available. There are even occasionally in-office massages!
    7. Evolent is remote-work friendly, offering flexibility with location and hours


    1. The company is growing quickly, so there are often shifts within teams and new team members coming in, which can occasionally confuse existing and changing processes and structures.
    2. There are occasional slow times, but more often there are very busy times, when Evolent accomplishes a lot of work in a small amount of time, which can occasionally be a little stressful. Overall, Evolenteers try to manage their time and protect their personal time as well.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be for us to continue to value culture, personal growth, and the close-knit family feel of the company, even as we grow ever larger. It is what makes Evolent such a joy and such a wonderful environment to come to each day!

    Easy Interview


    I've been interested in Evolent for a while and a year ago I spoke with a recruiter at Evolent to learn more about the company, groups, roles to understand where I could fit within the company. I ended up deciding to stay at my current job and did not apply at the time. About 8 months later I received an email from an Evolent recruiter asking me to set up a phone screening interview for a specific position. I had not applied but they thought I would be a "good fit." The role wasn't something I would have assumed would be a natural fit from looking at my resume, but I was intrigued and took the call. The recruiter (who was a Booz employee, not an Evolent employee) was terrible. She was not able to provide any information about the position or team - she wasn't withholding, she admitted that she didn't know anything about this new team or the expectations for the position other than what was written in the job description. She asked me a series of stock questions about salary expectations, when I would be available, and what start-up or entrepreneurial experience I had. When I responded "none" she said "are you sure?" I proceeded to tell her about my current role, which is the opposite of an entrepreneurial setting, and she said "if you say it like that, it sounds like start-up experience." She was clearly just interested in checking a box. Pretty annoyed and felt like she wasted my time. Didn't bother following up.
