Executive Assistant to the CEO & CFO


Title: Executive Assistant to the CEO & CFO

GoHealth Intro: As a leading health insurance marketplace, GoHealth’s mission is to improve access to healthcare in America.  For customers, enrolling in a health insurance plan is confusing and difficult, and seemingly small differences between plans can lead to significant out-of-pocket costs or lack of access to critical medicines and even providers.  We use our technology, agents, and expertise to cut through the confusion and get customers enrolled in a plan with the right coverage and benefits.


Why Apply: GoHealth has established a culture where our employees feel empowered, engaged and inspired. We are looking for builders who will contribute to the long-term health of the company. We also understand that you may not check every box in our requirements list, most applicants don’t! In fact, frequently cited statistics show that women and underrepresented groups apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. GoHealth encourages you to break that statistic and to apply today!
