    An Insider's view of Accolade

    What’s the vibe like in the office?

    Someone in our office hacked into the white noise machine speakers and installed a Slackbot to play music from Spotify where anyone can add to the queue. We start it every Friday afternoon and it's amazing.


    Sr. Director Product Management

    What does your typical day look like?

    We’re talking to people who are searching for ways to create value both for their employees and for their cost centers. Normally, in other companies, you are pitching something that either saves time or money. Here, we are spreading the word about something that can profoundly change or save lives. Who wouldn’t want to do this kind of work?


    Sr. Demand Marketing Manager

    How has your career grown since starting at the company?

    Nothing beats the culture here. You have people who can help you grow and contribute to the best of your abilities- that is the best thing about Accolade. I started as an Intern and now am a Business Intelligence Developer!


    Business Intelligence Developer III

    What is your vision for the company?

    We have an opportunity to change the way consumers experience the healthcare system that's really not working in their favor. Healthcare is complicated, anxiety-creating, and it's too expense. Our service has an opportunity to make life better for the consumer, drive costs down for the business, and actually make people healthier.



    How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

    I love how cross-functional Business Development is, because it allows us to work with so many different constituents across the business. Accolade is a talented yet humble team, where trust in each other is paramount. In this culture, I watch people to reach their greatest potential without feeling alone in the face of exciting challenges.
