Company Description
In healthcare, $600B (that's a B) is wasted every year. The HealthExpense ( platform -- think "Mint for healthcare" -- helps consumers and benefits administrators make the most of their healthcare dollars, tackling the mundane and often unnecessarily-complicated tasks like submitting insurance reimbursement claims, paying bills, and tracking deductibles and flex-spending caps. Our fast-growing network is quickly becoming the platform of choice for large employers and third-party administrators, and we're already helping over 1M employees make better and more cost-effective healthcare decisions.

A few key details:
- We're well-funded and stable: we offer great salaries, medical/dental/vision coverages, and generous bonuses.
- We're off to great start. Our platform is already in use by millions, and we're just getting started.
- You can do great things here. We're still a small team -- there are plenty of meaty challenges to tackle and opportunity to make a real impact.
- We set you up for success: We never skimp on best hardware or tools money can buy.
- We want you to share in our success. Every offer includes a healthy dose of stock options.
- We're building for the long-term. Our key executives have been around the block, and understand the importance (and sustainability) of true work-life balance. We work hard and smart, and also manage to have real lives outside the office.
- We're located in sunny Sunnyvale, California.
