ABOUT INCROWD

InCrowd is truly a wonderful place to work, full of smart people who work hard when necessary but are also flexible about time when we’re less busy. We’re a highly motivated group that values collaboration and gets excited when new people bring their own unique perspectives to the table. When we look for people to join our team, we seek talented, ambitious problem solvers who are as excited as we are to develop some seriously cool products and services.

Above all else you’ll have the opportunity to build something truly unique in the healthcare space. But in doing so you will work with an outstanding team and contribute to the warm culture of a rapidly growing company with plenty of perks. Enjoy summer Fridays (early release from Memorial Day to Labor Day), way more snacks than it’s possible to eat (some of them even healthy!), weekly (and then some) team lunches, beer and coffee on tap. This is a place where people are truly friends inside and outside of the office. Speaking of outside the office, we pride ourselves on giving our team members the flexibility to work from home on days when they might need to.

We’re located in the cool RiverWorks building (a converted Mill) in Watertown which sports its own café with many other great food options within striking distance in Watertown and neighboring Newton and Waltham. Concrete floors and high open wood raftered ceilings provide the perfect backdrop for creativity and building great new products. There are plenty of nooks for you to cozy up for quiet thinking time and also plenty of open collaboration space. And of course that space is also perfect for cutting loose during our regular company happy hours and game nights. We have billiards in house and a beautiful courtyard that is perfectly conducive to outdoor working sessions and summertime games of cornhole. You’ll also get to enjoy access to a free gym in the building, and in the summer many of our team members take to the path along the Charles, which is right out our back door, for bike rides, runs, and walks.
