Contract
This is a contract position (August through December 2020) that is 95% remote / work from home.

On those limited occasions where you are required to be physically present, we will take extensive precautions meeting or exceeding CDC guidelines to limit any potential exposure to COVID-19.

About us
We are a profitable and fast-growing healthcare technology startup -- a small and mighty team helping people find, enroll in and use ACA health coverage. We’ve doubled in each of the past two years and are now the largest ACA enrollment platform after Healthcare.gov, having helped over 2 Million people enroll in health coverage. We're a mission-driven team who advocate for and care about the people we serve.

We are a double bottom line company. Our two bottom lines are revenues and enrollments in ACA coverage. Uniquely in our space, we only assist with enrollment in on-exchange coverage. The ACA brings high-quality, comprehensive and affordable health coverage within reach for low income Americans. We exist to make that promise a reality.

About the Role
We are looking for individuals who are smart, responsible, quick-learning, master communicators to join our Consumer Advocate team for a contract opportunity. You will be 95% remote, but based in Sacramento. You will need reliable internet access for the duration of the role. Joining HealthSherpa will give you the opportunity to gain expert level knowledge within the health insurance industry, while also supporting our mission to help people find, enroll in and use quality, affordable health coverage through the Affordable Care Act.
