Our mission

Welkin empowers health organizations to deliver patient-centered care.

Our values

Inclusivity

We work together to create an environment in which we can all thrive. We seek coworkers who will engage in crafting healthy team dynamics that support everyone. We acknowledge that separating a “work self” from a “personal self” is often difficult and we strive to create a culture where everyone feels safe and respected sharing their personal interests and identities. At the same time, we support candidates and coworkers who wish to preserve separation between their personal and work selves. We actively examine the many ways our industry elevates privileged points of view (especially the cis white male perspective) and work to avoid replicating these flaws. We explicitly consider the power dynamics at work in our company so we can ensure they remain healthy as Welkin evolves.

Wellness

Our culture and habits put a strong emphasis on each employee’s personal wellbeing. We create opportunities to work on mental, behavioral, and physical wellness— sometimes together. We encourage humor and lightheartedness to avoid taking ourselves too seriously. We understand that building a company is an ultra-marathon, and we help each other work hard but sustainably.

Transparency

We hire teammates who desire to learn as much as possible about the realities of running a growing company. We communicate openly about the rationale behind the decisions we make so that everybody can learn from the results. We have consistent, active feedback loops to ensure we are all operating with the same up-to-date information and closing knowledge gaps.

Relationship Building

We interact primarily as coworkers, but we understand that our co-working relationships require as much active work as close friendships. We have frequent one-on-ones, share meals regularly, champion Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), and practice honest, compassionate feedback. We also disclose when we need help, or when relationships need attention. We learn from each other, and encourage mutual mentorship. We all work hard to be the best versions of ourselves with each other, creating the trust that we are doing our finest work to reach our shared goals.

Curiosity

We are a community of lifelong learners. Being a small, innovative company, curiosity is required to solve problems and create meaningful change. Saying “that’s not my role” is not enough. When we notice something is broken, we fix it. We do not ask permission to take responsibility, and we do not avoid risks for fear of failure— failure helps us learn. We maintain an environment in which everyone feels empowered to make improvements and explore new paths for themselves or their team. Follow where curiosity leads you; experiment often. The next great idea might be yours.

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.

 

Our history

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 team

Our squadron of cycling enthusiasts, pottery throwers, dancers, Hearthstone disciples, culinary students, bibliophiles, and Warrior devotees—and their dogs—keeps on growing!

Does having a positive impact motivate you? Are you passionate about making health care work better for everyone?

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.
