Perks and Programs

We asked Zocdoc to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • 100% Healthcare Coverage: We cover 100% of the cost of top-of-the-line medical, dental and vision coverage premiums for team members and their dependents. We are the beginning of a better healthcare experience and that mantra starts with our own employees and their families.
  • Free Lunch and Unlimited Snacks: Zocdoc offers free healthy snacks, beverages and catered lunch every day (including at least one healthy option). Zocdoc’rs stop work and eat together each day at lunch. It’s a great way to get to know our colleagues, share what we’re working on in a casual way and fortify our culture.
  • All Hands Weekly Meetings and Happy Hour: We host an all-hands company meeting called ZocTalk every Friday. In addition to an executive-led week in review, each week, a different team member gives a TED-style deep dive talk on a big win, project, or current event. During this meeting, employees are often individually recognized for their success or contributions on a particular project. Every ZocTalk ends with an open Q+A and office-wide happy hour to kick off the weekend.
  • Giving Back on our Birthday: During Zocdoc's ‘birthday’ week, we encourage all team members to take paid time off to volunteer together to help those within our communities. It’s a symbol of our commitment to bettering the communities and the world we live in. Zocdoc coordinates these volunteer opportunities – with local food banks, hospitals, and more – and makes it easy for team members to join in and give back. From our highest-ranking executives to entry-level employees, the vast majority of the Zocdoc team members eagerly participate.
  • Annual Awards Show: We host an annual end-of-year award ceremony to recognize seven peer-nominated team members; each who embodies one of our core values. The event is a full-scale production with dances, musical acts and skits, written and performed by Zocdoc’rs. It's consistently one of our employees' favorite days of the year.
  • Office Hours: All of Zocdoc's leaders at the executive and director level hold weekly office hours. All office hours are posted on our company-wide intranet, and employees across any office can sign up for one-on-one time with any leader—to ask questions, offer feedback, brainstorm, or just spend time getting to know one another. It's a great way to connect with our leadership and ensure the team is accessible to everyone, across all departments and no matter their role.
  • Zocdoc Clubs: Zocdoc’rs are encouraged to join clubs to explore their shared interests and connect with employees outside of their own team or department. Some of our extracurricular clubs include the ZocCommunity Club, Women at Zocdoc, ZocPride, ZocFoodies, and the Board Games Club. Members attend relevant external events together, host frequent meet-ups and get-togethers, invite outside speakers to the office, and more.
  • Special Monthly Zunches: We promote cross-department collaboration through “Zunch,” a special monthly lunch where team members who don’t typically work closely are assigned to a table together. The lunch starts with an icebreaker question or brainstorm and ends with a special dessert. Some of the company’s best ideas and connections have come from Zunch.
  • Hackathons: Our engineering, design and product teams hold off-site retreats to relax, bond and take time to step away from their day-to-day to work on special projects. During these hackathons, team members are challenged to hone skills they don’t typically use in their daily jobs, and tackle new projects of interest that expand their scope and tool-kits.
  • Collaborative and Bright Workspace: We have a bright, open office space with bike racks, games and lounge spaces for team members to connect and relax. In the dedicated Fun Room, employees often meet to take a break, grab a snack or play a friendly game of ping-pong or basketball. Themed conference rooms, a fully-stocked kitchen of healthy snacks and drinks, and picnic tables in the lunch area help infuse fun into our workday.

        How to Get Hired

        We asked Zocdoc for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

        What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

        We constantly aim to hire those better than we are and believe that the best talent comes from anywhere. This simple formula ensures that we are always raising the bar and hiring team members that are dedicated to our mission and invested in Zocdoc’s future.

        Beyond a required skill set, we look for intrinsics like thoughtfulness, intellectual curiosity, courage to speak up in difficult situations, a collaborative mindset, strong work ethic and the desire to be part of a mission-driven organization.

        What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

        To us, the strongest candidates are those who are able to convey their interest, passion and personality and quickly break through the noise in their application.

        Attention-to-detail is important. As many job openings may have a unique application process, interested candidates should pay close attention to the specific requirements of the job listing.

        A creative, tailored cover letter also helps to get our attention – we read a lot of them every day!

        Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

        We have openings across nearly every department but are particularly focused on filling positions in Product, Technology, UX and Marketing. We look for candidates who are high-energy, self-motivated and have a history of growth in their previous positions.

        What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

        To find out more about Zocdoc's current job openings, interested candidates can visit our Careers page at, browse our current openings, and apply directly online. We look forward to meeting you!
