Come for the mission. Stay for the experience.

Let’s keep things simple: we are an unbelievably talented, hard-working, and compassionate team driving towards a mission that impacts every single one of us - even you! 

Healthcare benefits are complex, underutilized and a mystery for most users. We’re removing that complexity. Our industry-changing technology solution puts a simplified benefits experience in the hands of users, saving them time and money. 

Following an explosive 2019 (raising $30M in Series C funding, awards for Chicago’s Best Tech Startup and Chicago’s Best Place to Work, adding 50+ key team members and more), we’re continuing down the path of high growth and high impact.

Your Impact

As the Head of Design, we want you to produce high-quality, beautiful application experiences. You should have the ability to turn product needs into elegant and functional solutions, in collaboration with product and software engineering teams. As a leader and example-setter you should be more effective when you're not even in the room. Your processes will be celebrated, emulated and copied by teams throughout the organization

Reporting directly into the VP of Product, your primary focus will be building the next-generation of our mobile app and web solution by managing the entire design process. You will lead and manage the health and success of a distributed team of talented designers. You will guide the team to develop best practices for ensuring a high bar of quality.

Almost every adult in America has had a negative experience interacting with their health benefits. You will design the HealthJoy experience that takes people at their most vulnerable and not only delivers magic at scale, but does so while also replacing something deeply dysfunctional.

  • Pixel-perfect eye for detail

Our rewards.

Work should be meaningful and rewarding. 

HealthJoy offers a robust package of employee perks and benefits including healthcare benefits, flexible PTO plan, 401k, pre-tax commuter benefits, parental leave, and HSA contribution match. We also enjoy each other's company over wellness activities, catered Friday lunches, happy hours, volunteer events in our local community, lunch and learns, and ‘friendship time’ pairings.  

The best benefit of all? We use our own product. As an employee, you can rely on HealthJoy to feel confident about your own healthcare decisions and get the most out of your unique benefits plan.
