Successful American start-up is opening a new technology centre in Prague

The new technology centre is officially opening on 14 July in Karlín in Prague. It aims to attract software specialists to design and develop brand new web and mobile applications. Eventually, the centre should offer as many as 60 new job positions.

The new technology centre of Accolade in Prague is going to develop a new cloud platform for personalized health care. It aims to attract software specialists and offer them a unique working place and opportunity to develop a product which helps people handle their health problems. "The Czech technology centres are gaining good reputation in the world. In Accolade, we know that the whole sector is built on skillful professionals who come up with great ideas and innovations. That is why we have decided for Prague and this is going to be the only Accolade centre outside the U.S.," says Drew Garner, Head of Accolade Czech Republic.

Besides creating about 60 new job positions, the new Accolade technology centre is going to bring specific know-how to the Czech Republic, too.  Being one of the most successful health care start-ups in the United States, Accolade specializes in transforming the complex and fragmented health care systems into a more comprehensible form, increasing the efficiency of administration of health information and optimizing costs. Using special software and customer hotlines, the company guides customers through the health care system in a very personal manner and helps them take their health decisions.

"Accolade combines several interesting factors. We use modern development tools, e.g. the cloud platform, which is not yet common in most companies. The public health services have a huge potential and immediate impact on people´s lives, which adds a completely new dimension to our work. Also, we get support from the American leadership team which has built up one of the most successful software companies in the world. And last but not least, those who join us will get a chance to help a brand new team come into life. For these reasons, most positions have already been filled," says Silvie Zeman, HR Manager at Accolade and the first local employee.  All vacancies for SW specialists in Prague are to be found here.

Accolade is going to open on 14 July 2016 in the Prague quarter of Karlín in the presence of Raj Singh*, CEO and Mike Hilton*, CPO.

(*Raj Singh and Mike Hilton are the founders of Concur, which was sold to SAP for USD 8.3 milliard in 2014.
