An Insider's view of Collective Health

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe here in the Chicago office is one of chill focus. For the most part, you'll hear the tapping of keys and some soft conversation, with the occasional bubbling over of laughter. We like to get our work done here, but we love getting to know one-another. We're always happy to step away for a chat over coffee or a game of foosball.


Software Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

Daily work as an SRE includes anything that increases the reliability and stability of the Collective Health platform to make sure our customers have the best experience possible. Everything from huge cross-team initiatives like migrating to Kubernetes to really deep dives troubleshooting issues is possible - and I choose projects that interest me!


Site Reliability Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

People here really root for each other’s growth professionally and personally, and they show it by working alongside you to help you do more than you thought you could. We make sure there is space to learn as you work and try new things, and when you do well with them, you get concretely recognized for it.


Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We strive to foster a psychologically safe culture in order to feel free to share all our ideas, allowing even crazy whims and hunches to be molded and shaped by in-depth discussion and collaboration until they reach their full potential. No question is a stupid one, and we all have valuable input.


Software Engineer

What are some social events your company does?

From the vaguely familiar whirlyball to the always-embarrassing karaoke happy hour, we like to keep things fun and not take ourselves too seriously. We’ve even subjected ourselves to a hot sauce eating challenge, just for fun. Our team also has a regular “game night” where we play anything from Settlers of Catan to Mario Kart.
