Team: Operations

About us

We are a very profitable and growing healthcare startup - a team of around 140 helping people find, enroll in, and use high-quality health coverage. We've doubled in each of the past three years and are now the largest ACA enrollment platform after healthcare.gov, having helped over 10 million people enroll in health coverage. We're a values-driven team that advocates for and cares about the people we serve.

We are a double bottom-line company: revenues and enrollments in ACA coverage. The ACA brings high-quality, comprehensive, and affordable health coverage within reach for low-income Americans. And we exist to make that promise a reality. Your contribution will positively help millions of people, helping them to navigate the complex and confusing health insurance industry and to access health care when they need it.

We are committed to building a team balanced in representation to best serve the people who use our products. We believe in creating inclusive and equitable spaces, which build trust and respect and foster a sense of belonging. These values are at the core of our culture, and we genuinely believe they will continue to lead our organization to successful outcomes.

  • Be the necessary holder of sensitive information and excel in your role as an information relay for your executive

You Have:

  • At least three years of experience supporting a C-suite executive
  • Experience managing a high-volume workload
  • Experience handling confidential information discreetly
  • Experience with web-based scheduling and collaboration tools and spreadsheets
  • Experience coordinating complex schedules and logistics across multiple time zones
