  • Build and participate in a respectful, inclusive culture. They prioritize the success and well-being of the team over individual results.

At Particle Health, we believe that creating and nurturing a respectful, equitable, and inclusive culture is the best way to work. We're developing our career pathways, performance evaluation, and employee engagement programs to ensure our employees have what they need to succeed now and in the future.

Our VP of People is a dedicated anti-racist and builds these principles into everything we do. Her experience in the social justice space before moving into tech greatly informs the way she creates and nurtures an inclusive culture. 

We're also working hard to combat burnout, which disproportionately affects underrepresented folks. We recently introduced "Flexible Fridays," which give employees the opportunity to either have the day off, get a bunch of work done without interruption, or participate in professional development. We're experimenting with whole-company short breaks and other ways to ensure our employees have the time and space they need to live fulfilling lives.
