Is your code good enough to fix healthcare?
If so, come develop easy to use, ultra powerful, cloud based tools which allow medical professionals to focus on what they do best – treat patients.
Our goal is to bring order to the chaos of the U.S. healthcare system by harnessing the power of the cloud to modernize healthcare. We are advancing an industry whose technology is 20 – 30 years old and we need your help to do it!
We're headquartered in Watertown, MA on the banks of the Charles River just a few miles from Harvard Square and Downtown Boston. Our Software Developers are working on development of all of our current products and services. Read the product descriptions on our main site to learn how athenaCollector, athenaClinicals, athenaCommunicator and athenaCoordinator are changing healthcare in this country.
The development team is a dynamic, energetic, and collaborative group that thrives in athena’s open working environment. Your future teammates are intellectual, top-notch performers faced with exciting challenges, but what developer isn’t? Developers come here because of the tremendous opportunity to learn and grow with a socially responsible company focused on changing healthcare at a fundamental level.
In terms of the technology platform—you name it, we’re using it but what does it matter anyway? We believe any developers worth their salt can pick new stuff up in a matter of months. We're more interested in folks with raw talent and a burning desire to succeed. The types of problems you might work on are wide-ranging—from core performance tuning and optimizing paper-based processes using OCR to writing AJAX widgets with complicated functionality in an easy to use interface. Specifically, we’re in a LAMP stack but the only real technical requirement for applying is being able to make a computer do what you want it to do.
So if your code is good enough to fix healthcare apply with us! We have Software Development positions at all levels, from entry-level to management. We are hiring Developers in Watertown, MA and Austin, TX. Apply here to be considered for all appropriate roles.
Compensation and Benefits: The position pays on a salaried basis, plus an annual bonus driven by the success of the company, department and individual and determined at the discretion of management. Other benefits include:
- Paid vacation and sick leave

Skills & Requirements

Our company, athenahealth, is growing at a meteoric rate, and we’re aggressively hiring at all levels. Our goal is to bring order to the chaos of U.S. healthcare, in which hundreds of thousands of medical practices navigate a Byzantine set of clinical and business processes wrought by decades of managed care. We do this by offering a software-as-service solution that embeds insurance rules and clinical processes directly into our practice management & electronic medical platform. In essence, we are building an operating system for the medical office that abstracts away administrative complexity, leaving doctors free to practice medicine. While the terms “medical billing,” “insurance rules,” “clinical processes” and “interesting and fun” are rarely used in the same sentence, we think they should be.
