An Insider's view of HealthJoy

What's something quirky about your company?

HealthJoy was started in a house in River North that's blocks from our existing office. At one time, we had over 25 employees stuffed in that house. The co-founders lived in the 4th floor and would occasionally cook lunch for the team.

Rick

CMO

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

As everyone knows, healthcare is overly complicated. People get these amazing health plans but are almost scared to use them. We are trying to make using healthcare as easy as possible. It's like you have an industry insider always accessible right from your mobile phone.

Khem

Director of Product Analysis

How does the company support your career growth?

One of my favorite parts about working at a startup is that there is no playbook-we’re creating new products, processes, and client experiences every day. Our corporate culture values individuals who come to the table with fresh ideas, and we empower team members with the autonomy and resources to execute when there’s a better way of doing things.

Sarina

Director of Customer Success

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to be America’s best healthcare and benefits guidance platform. We want to build an app where people can come anytime to understand, treat and save on their healthcare and benefits. We want to make the whole experience as simple as possible.

Doug

President and Co-Founder

What projects are you most excited about?

Bringing artificial intelligence to employee benefits is changing the game. The potential use cases for robust and efficient AI algorithms are enormous and can have a dramatic impact on how people get care. We have a three-year roadmap that's planned, some very exciting stuff.
