Company Updates

  • Check out our new digs! Two weeks ago we opened our new office in downtown Burlington, Vermont!

athenahealth – Why Work With Us?

We're dynamic, mission-driven, and passionate. 

athenahealth is a US-based leading products & services provider offering cloud-based solutions to physician practices and hospitals on Medical Billing & Revenue Cycle Management, Electronic Health Records, Patient Engagement, Access and Care Coordination, Population Health Management, Order Transmission, Epocrates and other point-of-care mobile applications. Our mission is to be healthcare providers’ most trusted service, helping them do well doing the right thing. We are passionate about applying technology and continuous process innovation to complex, real-world US healthcare problems, allowing us to keep our customers very happy and loyal while serving them profitably. We are financially solid and have been growing at about 30% per year for the past few years. 

Making health care work as it should.

Health care is plagued with inefficiencies that can jeopardize quality care. Doctors spend mere minutes with patients, often separated by a computer screen, doctors spend more time checking payment status than your vital signs, and important health records are not shared between providers.  We strive to address that by enabling the easier flow of patient information, and taking on the administrative burden so the doctors don't have to. Our open technology platform supports further improvement by inviting disruptive innovation and encouraging partners to join in our mission. With inventive tools and services, everyone within healthcare can benefit.

Our People

We have the smartest, most ambitious, most driven employees, who genuinely enjoy each other.  We work tenaciously, we enjoy what we do, and we are redefining the concept of friendships at work.  Wait, fun at work?  Yep, it's possible.

Our Culture

We are teachers and learners who work tenaciously as a team to achieve true customer success. We have a culture of candor, and an innate obsession to alleviate the work and stress of our clients.

Our Work

We are creating easy-to-use, ultra-powerful, network-enabled tools that allow medical professionals to do what they do best – treat patients.  Our work matters; both to us, and to the nation.  Our work is challenging and inspiring, and scratches our 'do-good' itch.

Our Perks

We provide a collaborative workspace for humans (and often their canine companions), including frequent company meetings, wellness programs, competitive compensation, generous PTO, sabbaticals, a cool environment, and way more awesomeness.

We our proud of our culture: a place where people genuinely enjoy the company of their colleagues, and where they are inspired to be a better version of themselves everyday. We have too many “top workplace” awards to list (but, we'll try).

We believe in face time with leaders: frequent company meetings (live streamed to every office), regular conversations with the CEO, lunch dates with the executive team, beers with the senior leaders, and more

We invest in our people: through development opportunities, learning, sabbaticals, perks, community groups, activities, employee resource groups, digital display screens, an employee experience team, and more

We actually like each other: we have friends at work, we love our company events, our hallmark “athen-o-ween” gives us the opportunity to dress up and show off our children at work, and it's normal to see athenistas having conversations (personal and professional) at our barista station, when volunteering, and even at our desks

We foster entrepreneurship: it’s how we were founded and how we grow; we value ideas and innovation from our employees

    Negative Experience


    It was a process of multiple rounds I.e. hr screening, telephonic technical round, technical f2f 1 , technical f2f 2, managerial round. After completing those round they will say technical is clear and update after each round but at the end they will say we can't proceed with candidature. No value for candidates time, will waste you full day just to say no.

    Interview Questions

    • few question were good but it totally depends on interviewer, they have asked me bookish question is round3 which I don't think can be used to judge a person's technical strength.   Answer Question
