Evolent Health 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. We take smart risks and when we fail, we fail forward. We respect and encourage commitments outside of work. While we don’t all work the same way or the same hours, we are all dedicated to exceptional results.

Beyond the basic benefits.

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 (including vision and dental), discretionary 4% company-matched 401(k) (paid out annually), and flexible spending accounts for transit. Additional benefits that employees can chose to opt into include pet insurance, Metlaw legal assistance, ID theft protection, and supplementary accident and life insurance. Each Evolenteer receives 25 personal and 10 holiday paid days off, as well as 4 paid volunteer days each year and a sabbatical option at 5 years.

Ready to have an #Impactcareer?

Take two minutes and apply on any device with your resume or LinkedIn profile. Evolent Health is an equal opportunity employer and considers all qualified applicants equally without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin.

We built our value and our values together as a team. Listen to our Evolenteers and what it means to them to live our values:

Start by listening.

In our continious strides to improve our work, our relationships and ourselves, we listen first. With every interaction, we preserve and promote an open culture focused on the success, support and development of all.

Own the opportunity.

We hire great people who we trust to make Evolent and our partners proud, and we value and reward those who lead at all levels. We rise to the occasion, capitalizing on the freedom and responsibility we've been granted to make an impact.

Pioneer's spirit.

Never satisfied with the status quo, we endeavor always to learn and to offer more. We take smart risks, and when we fail, we fail forward. We look toward the future, with the conviction and agility to achieve our vision.

Excellence in all.

We care intensely about the mission - both Evolent's and our partners' - and set our sights on excellence in all that we do. We thoughtfully chart the course forward, bring our very best to even the smallest of steps, and make sure to celebrate our progress.

Humility.

To serve-our partners and each other-remains our highest honor and motivation, and we apply both empathy and experience in fulfilling our charter. We each expect and extend respect, understanding it takes many different perspectives to drive change.

Unflinchingly can-do.

We demand  nothing short of run-through-walls resolve in serving the ultimate customer-the patient. We put team first, and presume the best of intentions and effort from one another. Through an enviornment that supports our whole sevles, we sustain our commitment to going about and beyond.

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.

Application review:
After successful submission, a member of our Recruiting Team will review your information and qualifications. When there is a match, a recruiter will contact you by email to set up an initial phone conversation.    

Talent Team phone interview:
After the recruiter has viewed your application, they will reach out to schedule a phone interview. This call will give you time to talk about successful work achievements and experiences, as well as why you are intereted in this particular role and working at Evolent Health. 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.

Final Round interview:
Dependent on candidate location and schedules, your final round interview may be scheduled in person or via Skype or HighFive. Every team has a particular way they like to interview, but  generally onsite interviews are team based; you will meet individually with several members of your future team. Each member will spend up to 30-60 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.” 

Technical Skills
Some positions may require a technical skills assessment or case study skills assessment. If this is required for your position, your recruiter will inform you and provide you with all of the details well in advance of your Final Round Interview. 

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.

Diversity & Inclusion

We believe that fostering and retaining a network of diversified top talent creates greater value to our partners and the patients they serve. As such, we are committed growing a diverse and inclusive workforce. Evolent Health is an equal opportunity employer and considers all qualified applicants equally without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin.

Our Talent team leads the charge in many of our D&I efforts. From writing our job descriptions, to making final offers, they work to make sure that our hiring practices are as fair and unbiased as possible. They work with hiring managers to create gender neutral job descriptions and actively work to source diverse groups of candidates. Our recruiting team also works to ensure that candidates are meeting with a diverse interview panel, and that they feel comfortable throughout the interview process. Our benefits are unconditional and are available to every Evolenteer and their spouse, domestic partner, and/or family, regardless of gender identity. 

Within the organization, we also have a specified D&I committee. Formed in 2016, this cross-team of Evolent leaders meet regularly to track progress on D&I efforts broadly across the organization. Shortly after forming as a group, they led the charge in organizing company-wide unconscious bias training, and have since worked to support the Business Resource Groups and Safe Space Ambassador programs that have developed within the company as a result. In spring of 2019, they worked in conjunction with our communication and marketing teams to write and publish Evolent’s first’s D&I report. Moving forward, this will be an annual publication.

Evolent Health is also proud to support several employee-led business resource groups.

Beyond the Walls

Fosters and reinforces culture regardless of geography or function as a competitive advantage. Our committee members ensure inclusion for remote offices and employees for company events and share activities per location throughout the year. Want to plan a team event but not sure where to start? Check out ideas of events and activities that have been hosted across Evolent.

SERV (Supporting Evolent’s Reservist’s and Veterans)

Supporting Reservists, Guardsman, and Veterans at Evolent as well as to provide support to the Talent Team in their Veteran recruiting and retention efforts.  SERV's membership is inclusive of Evolenteers related to Veterans, as well as any other Evolenteers who want to show their support.

Underrepresented Minorities

Mission to increase and sustain the representation of underrepresented minorities* throughout Evolent by creating an inclusive environment defined by access to equitable opportunities.

Underrepresented minorities are defined as exclusively relating to individuals with racial or ethnic backgrounds of African American, Latinx, Native Americans, Alaska Natives or Asian.

Evolent Emerging Leaders

Empowering all Evolenteers to become leaders by facilitating and encouraging opportunities for learning, collaborating across departments and developing Evolent leadership competencies.

Pride

Supporting our LGBTQ+ Evolenteers and allies to foster an environment of openness and support because Evolenteers who bring their whole selves to work can fulfill their career aspirations to the fullest and have a rewarding experience. We are a resource to connect members to build their professional networks and help staff grow personally and professionally.

Safe Space Ambassadors

Our SSAs are a team of 33 dedicated employees work across multiple teams, regions, and levels in the organization. The work to act as neutral points of contact for any employee who wishes to bring up a D&I related concern, but for whatever reason, does not feel comfortable doing directly to the HR department. Some of their responsibilities include, acting as a liaison between the D&I Task Force and Evolenteers; facilitating and supporting D&I-related conversations, programs, initiatives and surveys; guide interested Evolenteers to appropriate business resource groups; and hold one on one meetings with employees to discuss D&I-related concerns, questions or issues.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Benefits are extensive (including 6 health insurance options, pet health insurance, multi-tier dental/vision plans, occasional remote work, 25 days/year PTO, free tea/coffee/soda, etc.).

    Entry-level pay is market-competitive based on Glassdoor and LinkedIn market assessments. The company itself is well-positioned in the market and is highly responsive to the volatile value-based care market.

    Company and teams are innovation-, objectives-, and collaboration-oriented rather than stuck on competitive office politics or keeping the status quo, and this shows through everyday team interactions and the history of Evolent's analytics development.

    Analytics team follows through on its commitment to developing tech talent through extensive onboarding and skill training. The training is best for those comfortable with a high ratio of independent work, though teamwork and cross-department collaboration are critically important and strongly shape daily workflows.

    Cons

    None seen so far. The work/life balance seems reasonable (40-45 hours/week for exempt Analytics employees) for entry-level employees. The workplace may be challenging for those not used to routine independent learning and limited direction on tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Continue enforcing the great culture as the company grows.
