GetInsured – Why Work For Us?


At GetInsured, we’re on a mission to improve the way people shop for and enroll in health insurance. And we’re building world-class software to do it. Our drive and expertise are what make GetInsured a leading provider of health insurance exchange technology.

Our customers are employers, benefits consultants and health insurers, and our solution incorporates the best from the retail ecommerce industry to power their online marketplaces. Imagine more choices for health insurance and an ability to search based on your needs or what you value most, such as cost or keeping your doctor. Our streamlined user interfaces and innovative tools make health insurance shopping and enrollment easy and intuitive for consumers, and simple to implement for our partners.


“Our vision has always been to make finding and enrolling in affordable health coverage easy. Our consumer-friendly interface and decision support tools empower consumers to make better healthcare decisions.” —Chini Krishnan, CEO and Co-Founder, GetInsured


We are on the cutting edge with empathetic design. We’ve assembled a team of experts with decades of experience in UX/UI, health insurance and technology. Our team players have earned their stripes at leading companies, such as Amazon.com, Accenture, WebMD, Microsoft, Alere, General Electric, McKesson, Avanade, and Group Health Cooperative. At GetInsured, we are bringing this expertise to create the next generation of healthcare ecommerce.

Thank you for taking the time to explore opportunities at GetInsured. This company, this job, this market is my passion. So I wanted to take a moment to share with you why I think GetInsured is not only a great place to work, but why the industry itself is exciting and incredibly important -- for all of us.

Shopping for health insurance can be a confusing endeavor. If a consumer chooses the wrong plan, the financial and health impact could be catastrophic. So in 2005, I co-founded GetInsured, a platform that made it easy to shop, compare and enroll in health insurance. Today, I am incredibly proud of the incredible team we’ve built, and of the things that we have accomplished together.

More than a decade after starting GetInsured, our technology powers 25 percent of state-based marketplaces. Our consumer website offers more than 17,000 plans nationwide, and more than 200 carrier relationships. In the past three years alone, more than three million enrollments have taken place using our platform. GetInsured offers the nation’s most competitive marketplace for selling quality health insurance plans to individuals and their families. Period.

Since the launch of the Affordable Care Act, the health insurance industry has been constantly evolving, which means that, as a company, we need to as well. The GetInsured family is not only intelligent, dedicated, and hardworking, it is nimble. We are able to respond to the changing market demands with skill, keeping our consumer site, as well as our partners’ programs on the ball.

But why is all of this so important? The lack of health insurance continues to be the top cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. So, there’s no way to deny that not only having coverage but also enrolling in the right plan is crucial for the physical and financial health of Americans. Prior to the Affordable Care Act, millions of Americans didn’t qualify for coverage or simply could not afford it. To watch the laws change and to be a part of helping those people enroll in coverage, many for the first time, has been immensely gratifying.

I think I can also speak for everyone at GetInsured to say how excited we are that we are adding Medicare recipients to the universe of people we serve this fall. This is not only a great opportunity for us as a company, but it offers us the chance to take the confusion out of Medicare enrollment for the nearly 10,000 people who become eligible every single day. We are truly living up to our mission: to make finding and enrolling in affordable health coverage easy for all Americans.

We simply love what we do here. If you’re looking for a career in which you can truly make a difference in people’s lives and be in a position to really make an impact at work, I would love to speak with you.


Consumer

GetInsured.com serves as an alternative to Healthcare.gov and makes it easy for consumers to compare health insurance plans, claim tax credits and purchase health insurance online. Our call centers are staffed with fully licensed insurance agents who can enroll Americans entirely by phone if preferred.


Government

Our state-based marketplace platform provides SaaS (Software-as-a-Service)-based and COTS (Commercial-Off-the-Shelf) technology solutions to states that have opted to build their own health insurance marketplaces instead of using the federal exchange, Healthcare.gov. GetInsured’s COTS exchange platform powers the nation’s most successful state-based exchanges and can be deployed quickly and efficiently to meet the unique needs of any state.


Employers

Our employer platform offers a robust health insurance marketplace for COBRA-eligible individuals, part-time employees, retirees and dependents of employees who may not be eligible for employer-sponsored insurance. The GetInsured private-label platform provides carriers, associations and other providers of health insurance services with a robust health insurance marketplace for their members.

Insurers

GetInsured brings consumers and insurers closer together. Our technology-based solutions were built to address your unique needs, including ecommerce support throughout your value chain of brokers, employers and consumers, across all lines of business.

Working hard can and should be fun. Here, everyone’s ideas count, and everyone is respected. It’s a place where people work together and roll up their sleeves to get the job done. Our open plan offices in Mountain View, California; Seattle, Washington; Phoenix, Arizona and Atlanta, Georgia are the perfect places to collaborate and innovate.

You’ll also find a kitchen stocked with snacks, fresh fruits, and gourmet coffee. For fitness, you can be part of the GetInsured Allstars softball team or the Cyclists of GetInsured and join in on Monday Meditation or Wednesday yoga class. We also celebrate BIG—from birthdays to hiring anniversaries. It’s not uncommon to come back after vacation to find crazy decorations on your desk—one of the many ways we celebrate each other.

GetInsured offers very competitive benefits, including:

  • Competitive compensation
  • 401K matching
  • Robust health insurance benefits, including vision and dental
  • Modern office spaces in Mountain View, CA, Phoenix, AZ and Atlanta, GA with all the best amenities for a comfortable and inspiring work environment

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GetInsured.

    Interview

    HR manager found my resume online, the following process was very fast. I have received the phone call and the next interview was scheduled next day. People were very friendly, HR manager showed the office space and provided detailed explanations about the corporate culture, work environment, benefits and so on.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing special. The larger part of the questions required specific examples. Get ready to tell PSR (problem-solution-result) stories. Probably one tricky question was - how do you start the project if you know nothing about the product.   Answer Question
