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!
