Welkin empowers health organizations to deliver patient-centered care.
Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Welkin is committed to creating an environment where everyone’s perspectives are encouraged and heard. We work to understand how inclusion is experienced at Welkin; we set goals to improve team diversity, ensure a supportive culture that impacts retention, and put initiatives in place to increase feelings of inclusion. We keep our efforts and results transparent, while building a space for this to be an ongoing conversation team-wide.
We’ve made diversity & inclusion integral to the structure of the company we’re building, and scale our team and our values from that framework. Welkin’s leaders are deeply involved in our D&I initiatives, which is necessary for making it an enduring priority at every level of the company.
We are constantly learning, as well as doing the research and experimentation necessary to nurture our D&I efforts—and Welkin as a whole—in the right direction.
About 5 years ago, Gideon Wald and Chase Hensel agreed to join forces to make their own thing—a piece of software to address a social problem. A few months later, Welkin was born.
Originally conceived as a coaching app to support people with diabetes, Welkin evolved into patient management software when they realized there wasn’t a great tool for health professionals to strengthen relationships with patients. And the tools they were using weren’t originally intended for health care. So Gideon and Chase set out to change that.
And here we are today.
Our squadron of cycling enthusiasts, pottery throwers, dancers, Hearthstone disciples, culinary students, bibliophiles, and Warrior devotees—and their dogs—keeps on growing!

Welkin is a digital health company located in the heart of San Francisco. Our story began in 2013, when Welkin was founded to addresses the challenges of a social problem, with software.
Today, Welkin provides patient management software to organizations across health care that want to empower their teams to build strong, meaningful relationships with their patients.
As our team of kind, ultra-smart people (and their dogs) continues to grow, we’re committed to scaling our culture sustainably. While we do work really hard, challenging ourselves and each other, we think work should enrich your life, not deplete it. Our values serve as our guiding principles, driving how we make decisions as a company and hold ourselves accountable for our actions.
Welkin is dedicated to a workplace that reflects the communities we serve. We especially encourage women, people of color, and others who are underrepresented in the tech industry to apply.
