Senior Staff Accountant

| Chicago

Why our work matters

The healthcare industry is notoriously difficult to navigate. One third of the over $3 trillion spent on healthcare annually results from this complexity, and more than half of Americans don’t get care because of the price tag. Our mission is to simplify the healthcare experience in a way that provides access to better care at a lower cost.

Since 2014, HealthJoy has been committed to revolutionizing the way people access healthcare. Through an easy to use app that brings together healthcare information and on-demand help, we enable people to be more informed and confident when making decisions about their healthcare. It’s no small feat, but our work makes a significant difference in people’s lives.

Our team has compassion and energy for the problems we are solving. We hold ourselves accountable and deliver on ambitious, meaningful goals. Putting egos aside, we commit to doing what it takes to bring positive changes to our users. Everyone plays a role.

Together we are building the future of healthcare. Join us!

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.

CMO

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.
