bswift – Why Work For Us?


Our Story

Since our inception in 1996, bswift's goal has been to use technology and information to simplify the administration of health care, reduce costs and empower consumers. In the beginning, we were known as Platinum Healthcare, a company that set out to change the world and transform healthcare by creating the first web-based CDH (Consumer-Driven Health) plan. In the process, we discovered that there was great market demand for an online benefits enrollment/administration system, so we built one. It worked pretty darn well. In fact, version 1.0 of our benefits enrollment system was a finalist out of 15,000 entrants in Microsoft's 1999 e-commerce system competition. Not bad, huh? So the company ran with it, changed its name to "bswift" and landed its first employer clients.

Today, bswift is a state-of-the-art provider of cloud-based technology and benefits outsourcing/consulting services that streamline benefits, HR and payroll administration.

Serving millions of users nationwide, our benefits administration offerings feature online enrollment, interactive decision support, ACA compliance reporting and employee engagement videos. These offerings are integrated with bswift Marketplace, a private exchange solution that caters to your company’s unique needs, helps lower health benefit costs and offers employees a simplified shopping experience.

Want to be a "bswift-er"?

bswift prides itself on having a fun, friendly and smart staff that goes the extra mile to get the job done right. We offer the excitement and opportunity of a young, fast-growing company with the stability of an experienced management team, a blue-chip client base, and a proven track record of success.

We're looking for motivated and goal-driven team members who do whatever it takes to make a company great. The reward is a fun, flexible and creative environment with ample opportunity for professional and personal growth. If you possess the bswift values of higher standards, greater accountability and more fun, we want to hear from you!

    I have been working at bswift full-time

    Pros

    I am a long-term employee at bswift and never did I think I would remain at one employer for 10+ years! It has been so exciting to watch the company grow and expand over the years, and I am so impressed with what we have collectively built. The team at bswift is a young, fun group dedicated to doing our best for our client partners, and helping each other out. This is what keeps me here.

    Cons

    The fall is a busy time because many of our client partners go through open enrollment then. I like to equate it to tax time in the spring for accountants. It's just the nature of the ben admin business so you have to willing to put in overtime. We try to mitigate that a bit with flexible summer hours.
