What it's like to work at Bellese
Straight from our team members
Bellese’s culture of learning has given me so much space to grow and learn new things.
I wake up every morning knowing that I can make measurable improvement on the quality and cost of healthcare in the United States.
The perks of working with us
Work-life balance is essential. As long as you coordinate with your team and meet your core hours, you have the flexibility to work around the things you need to take care of during the work day.
We believe it is important to be able to refresh, travel, and recharge. Everyone gets three weeks of paid time off (PTO) and 10 paid holidays every year. All of your prorated PTO is available your first day of work.
We're a learning organization. That is why we want you to attend courses, conferences, and get certifications that matter to you. Everyone gets an annual education allowance of $3,000.
Invest in your future with a 401K plan and a safe harbor contribution from Bellese. This means that Bellese contributes 3% to your 401K whether you contribute or not.
HQ is in Baltimore, but we have remote team members all over the US. Work from home full-time if you like, or come in whenever you want (post-pandemic of course). Once it is safe to do so, we'll get project teams together in person quarterly. We'll cover all travel expenses.
We provide Health, dental, and vision coverage. We cover 90% of employee premiums and 60% of any family members on your plan. If you choose a high-deductible plan, we will contribute $600/yr for an individual plan, or $1,200/yr for a family plan to an HSA account for you.
Every year around the holidays, we give everyone a budget for technology to help them with their projects, learn new things, or adopt a healthier lifestyle. In the past people have bought monitors, fitness trackers, and even programmable drones!
We strive to hire the best talent in the industry. If you know people who would be a good fit at Bellese, bring them with you! We offer a tiered referral bonus, meaning the bonus increases for each person you refer!
We know applying for career opportunities can be time consuming, unpredictable, and nerve-racking. To help you through it we've outlined our hiring process so you know what to expect up-front. Steps may be combined depending on the position, but it will give you a good sense of what to expect.
