Attention, UCSB students: We’re back!
WELL will be scouting for hires at UCSB’s Winter Career and Internship Fair on January 23 and 24! We love amazing new talent wherever we find it, but we especially love discovering it at UCSB. More than half of our current team are Gauchos. A few actually found us through the university career fair, including software engineer Nate Diamond, account executive Jess Perron, and senior operations associate Grant Lilya.
WELL just received a new round of funding, and we’re looking to double the size of our team (we’re currently at about 50 employees) over the next year. Many companies at the fair will be looking to fill very specific roles; WELL is looking to hire a broad spectrum of applicants with the drive and tenacity to work for a growing startup.
Scary-good coders and smooth talkers take note: We’re looking for several software engineers for our development team and business development reps to join the sales team. (We’ve even been known to mold existing roles to fit people we think are awesome.)
Why work at WELL? We’ve written a helpful blog post explaining why we love it here.
Our goal is to revolutionize the healthcare industry, not to work passively alongside it. WELL currently reaches about 15 million patients. We’ve all been one of those patients at some point, and we all know how frustrating it can be: searching for a doctor, struggling to talk to a live human, waiting for results, and dealing with billing surprises.
That’s why WELL is out to create a delightful patient experience, and to make healthcare easier and more accessible—for everyone. You’ll have a chance to make a real impact in the world—either designing and building a product that changes people’s lives, or helping to get it into their hands. And since local healthcare system Sansum Clinic is a customer, some of those people will be your friends and neighbors!
Our senior operations analyst, Amy Stonestreet, may just have helped you build your resume at this year’s resume+! We’re developing a relationship with UCSB’s Technology Management Program, to encourage local entrepreneurship. And we’re a sponsor at local meetup Startup Stories.
Santa Barbara is not Silicon Valley, or even Silicon Beach—it’s better. The startup culture here is booming. There is a huge range of tech and lifestyle startups in the area, which means you’ll be in great company. And while we can promise you’ll have amazing coworkers, you’ll also be part of a high-energy community that loves the work it does—and loves doing it in Santa Barbara.
Working at WELL means that you get all the energy and excitement of working at a young startup—and plenty of room to grow professionally. But we’re also post-revenue and well-funded by our investors, so recruits can expect real job security.
